Or so it’s commonly thought. But we beg to differ. Los Angeles is quite a walkable city, and where we live, at the border of Los Angeles and Santa Monica, is particularly pedestrian-friendly. So when jojoebi of jojoebi designs suggested a global neighbourhood photo journal series, we put on our walking shoes and trod the […]
Jojoebi of Jojoebi Designs has organised a neighbourhood walk with a difference: it’s going around the world! Jo has kicked off the series with a tour of Saitama today, and the series continues daily until the 12th of July (see schedule below). Come back tomorrow for a wee tour of my little corner of West […]
We’ve been off gallivanting around Chicago, and while I’m still sorting through uploaded photos, here’s one of the Finster enjoying a Chicago beach. Finlaggan sifting sand on Oak St Beach, with the John Hancock tower in the back and Lake Michigan to the left.
It’s been over a year since Finlaggan added some spice to our lives. Too much spice to do much other than upload occasional photos to Flickr. And since I’m work-avoiding, I’ll start an irregular series of posts of old photos that we dumped unceremoniously on Flickr1. First up, Finlaggan’s first vacation! To San Diego! Just […]
In honour of Noodle Month, here’s one of those foodie posts lurking in the depths of my drafts folder1. Let’s imagine you’ve just arrived in Vancouver and hosteled yourself in your new (fancy-pants) accommodations. What’s the first thing you do? Unpack? Freshen up with a post-flight shower? Take a power nap? For my family, the […]
2012, originally uploaded by framboise. We had a busy start to 2012 with family and friends, which is just how we like it! So we’ve started the year exhausted, but in a good way. Both P and I gave up on making New Year’s resolutions many moons ago. But if we still made any, our […]
I’d like to start the year by correcting an omission in last night’s review of our 2011. Our darling dog Kirin, patiently waiting to be walked this morning, is still very much loved despite my forgetting to post any photos of her! So to make up for Kirin, here’s one just for her (photos all […]
The year started with P helping his dad in Scotland, and D in LaLaLand plodding away at work. P’s return to LaLaLand was well-timed for the looong wait we had for the arrival of the latest love of our lives, Finlaggan, named, incidentally, not for the whisky, but for the Loch on Islay* in Scotland. […]
, originally uploaded by framboise. Fin wide awake on last night’s flight from YVR to LAX. Fortunately, he was in a decent mood for 90% of the flight, helped by the important task of emptying the seat pocket of never-ending safety cards, magazines, menus and sick bags. Towards the end of the flight, his crankiness […]
packing, originally uploaded by framboise. Last day in Vancouver 😦 Fin is a great help when packing. He takes things out as you put them in, making you reconsider the necessity of the item.
