Canada's Snowbirds Over White Rock

From Semiahmoo Hotel's Packers Oyster Bar on a beautiful summer evening. We hit Happy Hour and then ordered a couple of pizzas, sitting outside and enjoying the show put on by Canadian Forces Snowbirds Demonstration Squadron.









The pizza was good too.

The Dog Days of Summer

We've really enjoyed keeping Russell, the Lawson Whoodle, company while his family was away. We anticipate an emotional reunion at SEA (Seattle Airport) tomorrow morning.

The Delights of Dog Sitting

We're enjoying the company of Russell, the personable whoodle whose family is traveling here and there for a couple of weeks.

If it weren't for Russell, we wouldn't have been standing in our back yard at 5:30 a.m., taking in the beautiful morning.

If it weren't for Russell's intense stare upward, we wouldn't have noticed the Great Blue Heron perched in our tree.





A nice start to the day...

LAX Layover

 After a fine flight on AA #72 SYD-LAX (now among our very favorite business class products), we zipped through immigration and customs formalities, strolled from terminal 4 to 6, and went through TSA PreCheck effortlessly.

We're now relaxing in the Alaska Lounge, surprisingly small but not too crowded today.

Our next flight is 11:15 so we have much of the morning in here.
