Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday. My time in Washington State and Vancouver is almost to an end. In fact, I spent 95% of my time at my friend’s summer retreat in Washington State. I decompressed after the most stressful semester in recent years. Now, I am raring to go when I hit Nova Scotia, in less than 24 hours. I’m sad to be leaving, but beyond excited to be seeing my Dad, and spending time in my home city and province. Today’s post is a quickie. Here are a couple of shots that I took over the past week or so. A gentle reminder…please leave a comment after linking, and remember to add a link to Budget Travelers Sandbox on your post.

A mom-to-be robin that I “met” in my travels…
She really is sitting on eggs…(She should be a mom around July 10th.)
Sandals in the Snow…(near the ski lodge at Mount Baker. It was a hot hot day down below, and even at the top it felt like summer.
Mount Baker at the end of June…80 degree day; the snow was melting, but there was still plenty around!
Traveling to a ski lodge at the beginning of summer when it’s 80 degrees and finding a fair amount of snow, was strange, even for this Canadian. However, it was fun, and probably a memory that will stay with me for a long time to come. Have you ever experienced snow on the ground when the summer temps are soaring?
The robin and her eggs is another one of those lifetime memories. I had never watched one build a nest, lay her eggs, and sit on them, all in the same week!
Now it’s off to Nova Scotia to visit family and friends. I’m sure my Dad will be standing at the door when I pull in the driveway in the rental car. Then on Sunday I will pick up an old friend at the airport, who is flying in especially to see me. On the 14th a life time friend is celebrating her 90th birthday! That’s just a few of the amazing things that will be happening over the next 3 weeks!
