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.

Lunch at Montgomery's in White Rock

Wednesday of last week I finally had the chance to go down to White Rock for the afternoon. The last time I was there was probably in September of 2006. As usual, I start off with a lunch (a late lunch in this case), so that usually takes me to Montgomery's Cottage Lunch on Marine Drive opposite the beach at Semiahmoo Bay. Above, the first photos shows the establishment from the southside of Marine Drive and the second image is a view of the side. The third image describes what is on my mind: fish and chips! Below is a view of the inside looking out. Then, you guessed it, my lunch of fish and chips plus a good beer to wash it all down!

On the ceiling, if you take the time to look up, you will notice some hockey sticks. The goalie sticks are signed by Kirk McLean, retired from hockey and formerly of the Vancouver Canucks. Kirk is a cousin to the Montgomerys. The other stick on the ceiling is signed by Pavel Bure. Google both names to find out more about them. You can start by going to to learn more about Kirk and other members of the Vancouver Canucks team.

The friendly and knowledgeable staff are there to serve you. Is it any wonder that they won an award? They're tops in my book but don't take my word for it, check them out yourself the next time you're in White Rock. You can eat in, on their patio or order and take your lunch with you to the beach. Montgomery's Cottage Lunch is at 15539 Marine Drive. Call 1-604-536-7779 to reserve a table for the busy times.
