We had a lovely long weekend last weekend - managed to relax, get our yard work done, had lots of BBQd food, and even tried out our new kayaks! They are everything we hoped them to be and we had a great 1.5 hour paddle on Monday afternoon. This week we have had extremely nice warm sunny days and after an extremely tough work day of being couped-up in the house we decided to take a walk with Buddy down at the Marina area last night. I never get tired of the scenery and still absolutely love where we live.

The first incident - On Friday I went and did my regular grocery shop including purchasing 4 litres of milk for $4.59. On Sunday we discovered that the milk never made it from the trunk of my car to the fridge. Unfortunately, the garage was not cold as we had several nice days and by the time we figured out where the missing milk was - it had spoiled. Hard earned cash and milk down the drain.

|Beach at Goose Spit low tide, Comox Valley|

I seem to have a hard time making a commitment to doing Furry Friday posts - because I like to blog when I am in the mood to. Therefore, all further Buddy posts will be done whatever day I wish too :) These pictures were taken last weekend. A sunny day combined with low tide and Buddy bath day all converged into the perfect day to take Buddy to the beach for the first time. If we let him go off leash, well, we likely would never catch him again therefore he had to enjoy it on leash. He is a grazer, loves eating anything and everything off the ground. Another reason to have a short leash at the beach as there are things there like jellyfish that could make him pretty sick. Last week he ate a bunch of rhododendron blossoms and I started to panic as those are supposed to be fairly toxic to dogs. There were zero noticed side effects from that episode but you can't be too careful.

For two weeks very April the Royal Canadian Air Force Snowbirds Demonstration Squadron practice their routines at our Air Force Base (Comox) for air shows around the world. It is pretty cool and amazing to see them along with CF-18 Hornet fighter jets doing aerial manoeuvres from your back yard. Buddy, my puppy is wondering what all that noise is but the rest of us love it. As I type this I can hear a CF18 speeding overhead.
It seems they shot a video this week on one of our sunny days with amazing shots our town and ocean coastline. The video is only 4.5 minutes long - Enjoy!
