The Stephen Lewis foundation is so great. So proud that my mom will get to have a quilt she contributed to along with hundreds of other grannies in Canada, Africa, UK, and Australia hung in the amazing Canadian Museum of Human Rights in Winnipeg!!

Free 1000L water tank? YES PLEASE!
Pickup? No problem!
#gardening #PortAlberni #Drought

A large water tank sits inside a trailer. It is semi transparent white plastic with a metal grate around it. There is a large spigot on the bottom and an intake on the top. The trailer has its back gate down. It has low alumnimum sides and deck. It is parked behind the blue Kona EV in the driveway.
The tank has been moved onto a small garden cart immediately behind the trailer. It is quite a bit wider than the cart. It’s tipped slightly to the right.
The cart with the tank on top is sitting in the middle of a large grassy backyard between the garden boxes and chicken coop on the left and the shed and small car under tarp on the right.

Looking back at some stats and photos and things from May and man... I need to get this picture framed. I love it so much. And it's never to be repeated.
#Aurora #PortAlberni

A picture looking up toward the night sky. In the bottom portion is the double peak of our house with its bright white trim and bright blue paint. There is a tall window with one window swung open hinged from the top.

Above the house is an electric purple sky with a green splash of colour from the aurora. Behind, the colour the stars are visible.

There is the sound of a train and its horn along the tracks in #PortAlberni for the first time since the Pandemic! Yay! 🚂 They're getting ready for the summertime runs promised along the waterfront. It's not with the Steam loco this year, just the old Diesel (which has its own charm), but it's a start.

The big rhodo is the last to bloom. There are lots of bees buzzing in it but it's a little blustery so they are not stcking around much for a photo :)

The middle of a creek with a run of water going down both sides of a rocky middle. There is a black plastic bag on the ground. There are people up the creek in the distance.

They're trying everything to coax the orca out of the lagoon.
(If this more unconventional strategy doesn't work, they'll be using a large fish net in the coming days to try to trap it and physically move it back to the ocean)
Oh! And there was a small pod of Orcas in #PortAlberni yesterday apparently. I missed them, but they stayed a little while. L…
