Yesterday we had our 7th Annual Belski BBQ at our place. I was too busy to take photos and literally took only 8 photographs... here are some of them :) Thank you so much everyone who were able to come, it was great to see you and we had a wonderful time!

Last Saturday I had a pleasure to photograph a wedding anniversary. This sweet couple celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary and invited me to capture the event. Every year they dress in their wedding clothes and go out to give cookies to random people. This year they went to Prince's Island park and were joined by family and friends. Here are a few of my photographs :)

I'm photographing a wedding tomorrow so I thought I would go for a little ride and relax a little. I decided to go see a tunnel near airport in Calgary (I missed the opening when we were on our vacation).

I made a quick stop at a butcher shop to get some meat. I'm not a big fan of gravel road but Vespa does pretty good.

2014-06-08 14:35 Sergei Belski: I replaced it a couple of month ago. I always found that every time I rode my silver Vespa I was missing a case.. so I moved my old case onto that bike and got a new one for this bike :)
2014-06-08 10:25 SonjaM: I noticed that your Vespa is sporting a nice stylish top case lately. When did you replace it?

Day 12: Oliver is on his way to the airport in Cancun, Mexico... We are going home!

Day 11: First day without rain in a while :) A bunch of workers were all in force fixing roofs around the resort in preparation for the next rain.

Because of the rain I have been reading lots more this vacation than other vacations. My book of choice for this trip is "Long Way Round". I have seen the TV show many many times but never read the book... so far it is great!

After breakfast Tracy, Oliver and I went to the ocean for a swim and to feed fish :) Oliver had lots of fun!

Day 10: Another day in paradise? Rain, rain, and more rain :( This morning we went for some swimming in the ocean and Oliver had lots of fun feeding fish. Because it was raining, I didn't take my camera with me but I regretted it because I could have taken some nice photos. I wasn't so sad later on about it because at about 3pm my memory card died to the point of no restore and I would have lost all my images anyway.

In the evening I decided to brave the weather and to try to take some night time images of the resort. I always do it on our vacations but this time I learned my lesson... dont' leave it too late. Today I was trying to do it in a poring rain, with a strong wind, with a broken umbrella... and they didn't turn the lights on in swimming pools (probably because of the weather). So I didn't get any good photos other than a nice one of the buildings on the way back to our room. I'm pretty sure it will be raining tomorrow as well so I guess I will go home without night time images :(

Day 9: Well.. at least they are not evacuating us yet from all the rain water :) Rained again the whole day, and I think it will be raining again tomorrow and probably the next day, I'm running out of dry shorts... I guess we will see.

Nothing much to do but to photograph iguanas on a rainy day. Rain stopped for maybe 5 minutes and they all came out.

Oliver and Tracy were taking a nap so I decided to go for a walk on the beach... I wish the weather would be better but nothing I can do about it. I love watching water hit rocks, specially when its cloudy, cold and raining. I never been to England but I always imagined that it would be somewhat this way :)
