FAMILY VISIT AND CRANBERRY HARVEST

Last week DH and I took a 3000 mile flight to British Columbia to see my family..... my two sisters and their husbands, my Dad, and our niece and nephew. While we were there, DH was able to see our Brother in Law's Cranberry Harvest that was in full swing. He really enjoyed seeing it, as he enjoys all aspects of farming. There is no cranberries grown in our area, so this was very interesting for him to see. We stayed at the home of my sister Karen and her husband Allen. We had some great meals while we were there, and Karen makes the best spaghetti I have ever tasted! There were lots of other delicious meals too. We had a great time seeing everyone again. DH got some wonderful shots from 38,000 feet and some pictures of the Cranberry Harvest.

  1. Beautiful photos - especially of the clouds and Rockies...wow....Seems like whenever I'm in a plane, the windows are too dirty/marred/cloudy to take any kind of photo...Glad you got time to spend with family....there's usually not too much better. Have a great weekend! (And thanks again for fixing my head....(at least I hope it's fixed!) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  3. What beautiful scenic photos. Looks like a productive cranberry harvest. Last month, while attending an agricultural fair, a man and his wife were selling organic cranberries grown on their farm located in Down East, Maine. I stocked up, knowing that a long winter is ahead of us. Yes, it is snowing. Enjoy the weekend, Julie.
