An almost-stormy day last week.

Looking north at stormy sky, with Ocean Point Resort, float plane leaving, harbour ferry, our infamous blue bridge and a gorgeous SALTS ship in view.

Looking out towards the entrance to the harbour. We considered turning back, but I'm glad we didn't as this didn't develop and it was such a nice walk.

We were surprised to see these large yellow irises growing wild.

This Hummingbird flew down and landed on a branch just where we were walking along Dallas Road. It was so close and stayed for so long, we couldn't resist taking a lot of pictures. In this one, as a bee flies by, you can almost make out the rich magenta colour of its throat. The sun was behind it unfortunately.

Scratching its little neck.

And again, with the stormy sky closing in.
