Shortly after I came out to British Columbia in early 2006 I had a case of severely high blood pressure. It wouldn't have been fair to an employer for me to work for them until I got my health situation sorted out. I was on medications to lower the blood pressure and it took until early 2007 to find the cause. I finally went to a naturopath who found that a microscopic parasite was the cause for all this.

While getting my health in order, I took up blogging to share my photography. This way I wasn't wasting time and others got to enjoy the photos, not just me and those close to me.

In May of this year I had a mini-stroke cause again by severely high blood pressure. I may end up gong to the naturopath again since the specialist and other MDs can't seem to find the cause. This has only been a problem out here. Before that in Ontario, the blood pressure was only marginally high, not severely high like in BC.

Knowledge is good because being forewarned is forearmed!

All that said, enjoy this blog and all the photos I share with you.

Some Views of White Rock - Summer 2006

Here are a variety of images from White Rock, BC taken during the summer of 2006. They vary from Montgomery's Cottage Lunch, one of many restaurants on Marine Drive, to the boardwalk, promenade, Mt. Baker (volcano) and the Amtrak train going to Seattle, Washington (USA). More photos of this lovely community on Semiahmoo Bay will be featured in future posts. Enjoy!

As expected, this is a beautiful blog. I was worried that you might never start blogging..... at last you did it, phew.

Now tell me what is that eighth (from top) photo?

In the eighth photo from the top, that's the boardwalk that juts out into Semiahmoo Bay. The previous photo shows you what the pilings look like: encrusted with blue mussels, seaweed, barnicles and such. There are a lot of other interesting images from White Rock in my collection (small fish, starfish, more of the boardwalk). So there is more to come.
