Harvest Moon festival is also about fruits….Persimmons ….something to moon about
Farm fresh grapes, pears and peaches…luring colors and shapes… (pictures taken near Kelowna, BC, Canada on a fruit picking outing….
Calgary Tower…collective feet-strength to look down 191 metres at Downtown Calgary. We are standing on the glass floor of the Observation Deck of the Tower awaiting a picturesque presentation of the city below, the sun-burnished Rocky Mountains, the foothills and the prairies.
2. Two feet-Four feet…Kangaroo Creek Farm, Winfield, British Columbia…a family enjoyment place with uncaged Kangaroos, Wallabies. Wallaroos, mean looking Pot_bellied Pigs (thankfully fenced), snooty Emus, Parrots, Ducks, peacock and cuddly baby goats.
