Don't Fence Me In . . .
So pardon me if I haven't written much. We've finally got some decent weather here, so we're outdoors enjoying the sunshine, and the biggest concern this afternoon is what kind of martinis to chill for the parents' return, and what kind of salad should accompany the steak that should hit the grill 7-ish. . .
For such a light-writing occasion, I'd earlier put together these photos of fences that invited me to play compare and contrast. Above is a fence at Naramata, designed to point out boundaries to cattle and horses. Below, an imaginative, rustically beautiful West Coast fence separating parking lot from resort at the renowned Sooke Harbour House
And below, an unlikely comparison perhaps, but sharing function with the other two and, like them, mirroring its aesthetic surroundings in Paris. . .
And yes, that was a rather idiosyncratic post, wasn't it? Back to regular programming . . . well, one of these days. . . . If you're a fellow BC-er, enjoy our BC long weekend. Anywhere else, enjoy your short one!
