What are your jeans doing today?

Recommended Posts

Great posts everyone!

Looks like Max and I had the same idea about getting near the water today:

Took a little trip to the Pier in my town:

6251233727_bcc2189766.jpg

The city put up birdhouses like these all along the shoreline:

6251755210_d7ddd0dc3e.jpg

Nice little Garden and water Fountain at the entrance to the park:

6251248953_599e80f6a2.jpg

Found this sweet "Rock Chair" that I hadn't noticed in the park before:

6251212763_1c1b73e2d9.jpg

Gotta throw some pic of denim in here :D

6251794470_3b1f26beea.jpg

When they founded the city, their aim was the first "Utopia" in Alabama, haha. They put plants on top of all the trashcans in the downtown area (Pretty blurry pic, but always laugh when I see these around town):

Have a great one everybody!

started out in east river park

6251470343_fc20c465f1_z.jpg

enjoyed a blue-ish (if not windy) day

6251573787_265eb392aa_z.jpg

kept the skyline nearby

6251547439_3089636034_z.jpg

spotted a classic

6251520389_4da094c48a_z.jpg

and a great piece by over under

6252286788_d661dedfaf_z.jpg

got a shot *through* a classic

6252086774_3c2d0e14b3_z.jpg

and street art welcomed me

6251794817_4a1b20e2c4_z.jpg

turns out, this was good advice

Took a walk around my hometown yesterday.

Followed the signs

IMG_1711.jpg

to find the path on the ridge

IMG_1700.jpg

IMG_1732.jpg

Climbed down through the rocks

IMG_1723.jpg

and over the "devil's bridge"

IMG_1731.jpg

to get to the place where princess Amalia supposedly jumped of a 100 ft cliff

IMG_1734.jpg

had a little break in the sun

Entropy kid - beautiful place! What area?

Almostnice - looks like a great time!

So a little catch-up… Things have been really busy with work and all, but we've been getting out for long walks in the nearby parks. Some of the falls scenes….

6257328749_20eb752e12_z.jpg

Sup zeen ;)

6257851368_448b625bb7_z.jpg

It's amazing how much wildlife there is in the GTA

6257331829_80b5365db9_z.jpg

Most people don't know it, but the Don river is stocked with salmon. Every fall, they can be seen heading upstream to spawn. Here's one who either finished the job (or never made it…. )

6257333413_f2e25c0b2d_z.jpg

I guess someone else was either fishing for them, or watching them go by!

6257855434_92102360ab_z.jpg

The smallest woodpecker I've ever seen - he was 1/2 the size of the downy we spotted at the cottage last year

6257323847_b7f79bb41e_z.jpg

The colours are not quite out here in the city, but it's getting there!

6257330019_d30c798e4e_z.jpg

It's been cold & rainy much of the time

6257866600_85f1216576_z.jpg

I guess the cold weather has increased our appetites, cuz that's the other activity we've been doing - eating a lot! Continued...

yesterday we had arrived in christchurch

from the train station to our hotel i had seen enough and got all choked up to the point where i didnt think i would be able to go out with out being an over empathizing mess

the next morning we headed out so mr could show us some of the places he had been working (by us i mean his daughter and i... i know jeans cant see)

first stop lyttelton

abandoned funky paint job building

3ch1.jpg

steep town this

3ch2.jpg

eclectic cafe that used to be in funky paint job building, now in dull building

3ch3.jpg

this place had awesome staff and amazing food and coffee and i might get mr to go back and pick up a drawing that was for sale there too, loved the place

even if the wall was held up with a screwdriver

3ch4.jpg

the view... most of the buildings here will either be demolished or need extensive repair work done, the one on the left is sitting empty as the structure is too compromised now

3ch5.jpg

from here we drove out to akaroa over a massive hill

3ch6.jpg

3ch7.jpg

fresh fish sandwiches...

3ch8.jpg

drove back again stopping at the top of another big hill to look at everything

3ch9.jpg

including an army guy going for a run with a fully loaded pack

3ch10.jpg

6265026689_7c73f372f2_z.jpg

the cameraman's name is rahung. the tattoo on the back of his neck is made by traditional mentawai hand-tapping method. he has them all over his face too. very cool guy.

6265554008_25805ae39e_z.jpg

the text on the poster says in sufu parlance: 100% independence FTW!

6265012367_d4747c2af9_z.jpg

Then dropped by to check on the guys working on this

6266303235_6438e70bd2_z.jpg

which should hopefully turn into this in a couple month's time

6266827046_7c38f1b541_z.jpg

then went to one of my favourite districts in the city

6266825468_2128529964_z.jpg

walked around a bit and took in some backlane action

6266297873_e3d904a264_z.jpg

had some time to try these out and almost bought it to replace my old one, glad i didn't succumb....yet

6266825740_8a6bdff7a5_z.jpg

then back to work visiting an old school builder's shop for some materials for another project

6266297641_095304d833_z.jpg

finally ended up here - where I was as well last week - a great place in the city to be on a breezy night

6266827222_74cc879318_z.jpg

i'll be back one day to try this out for dinner soon....

6266826022_d672282f28_z.jpg

^^ I lived in Page for a bit just a few minutes from Lake Powell. It's pretty awesome to sit on the edge of the cliff and look down into horseshoe bend. The scenery is about the only thing I miss from living there.
