Making a Point














Peter looks tiny on this rock at Patrick's Point!















He's microscopic here. The rocks were gigantic!
















A bunch of seals were hangin' out on the rocks!
I really thought this one was lookin' up at us...
















Agate Beach at Patrick's Point, just down the road
and down a huge set of stairs from where we were
camping. I felt even more giddy than i look here.
















That's Agate Beach behind us. We camped just a
short distance away from where we took this pic.
Oy, our heads look sooper huge! Too funny!

This looks like a cool site, "The Vegan News"

Curious as to what this "vegan health study" is all
about... if it's still going on... at $750, i can't do it!

Good nooz from the school lunch world.
(Note: There is a difference between a vegetarian and a veterinarian!)
Love the last quote of the story from the first-grader... pretty cool.

You two are such a gorgeous couple. Kleo, you are the cutest, giddiest girl ever! lol!!

I'm in love with the seals. They look pretty happy there!

Thanks for the links. I saved the veg news one and laughed at the vegetarian croc! :P

Don't work too hard this weekend!!

Hi Kleo! Thanks for sharing so many of your vacation photos with us. I enjoyed the ones from the farmer's market and LOVED the ones you posted today.
Two great stories by the way. I can't get over the crocodile. That's pretty neat. Although neither is as exciting as Journey/Def Leppard!!
I was supposed to be off work tomorrow and originally Sunday, but then got roped into working Sunday. Now, everyone over there is sick, so I have to work tomorrow too. GRRR!! 3 weeks until my vacation. I think I can make it. I think I can, I think I can.
Once you have dates nailed down for Toronto, let me know!
Have a good one.

Where do you come up with all of these interesting links? The school lunches sound like they're moving in the right direction. I was always appaled at what some districts felt it was ok to serve the children. Vegnaism aside, fried and fatty foods are not brain food. Liking the vegetarian croc.

Thanks for sharing more pics. I'm so glad you had a wonderful time.

Geraldine said...

Wow, fabulous photos and a good point too...we are all so tiny in the big picture, aren't we. I agree with Candi, you two are a gorgeous couple!!!

Hugs,G

Wow... Patrick's Point looks sooo amazing! Those are gorgeous pictures. Enjoy YOUR weekend (even though you're working--hopefully you're covering something fun & exciting).

Catherine said...

Kleopatra, sounds like a wonderful trip! Those rocks are incredible!

I just got back from Wyoming, and I'd LOVE to go back when I'm not working . . . !!

Three cheers for travelling!

I am SOOOO glad it looks like you are having such great days in those pictures! You truly deserve the best from life, for all the love you pour into it!

On another note, the vegan health study you mention has that price only if you want to have a detailed anamnesys of your own body. For the rest, it is actually a pretty serious scientific studies on veganism that should be promoted as much as possible: it is a pretty in deep questionnaire investigating vegan eating habits and diets. The preliminary 2005 initial review of the data is very interesting!

kate said...

I love reading your site. Always such a breath of fresh air. Keep it up! :-)

Broke Vegan said...

You are so adventurous!! That's very exciting! You all look beautiful together!

trac said...

Love the camping pictures, especially the seals. How neat to see them in the wild, as they were intended to live, instead of in a zoo.

Midwest Vegan said...

I think it's a good picture of you and Peter (of course, I've never seen you in person so I have nothing to compare it too - LOL).

Love the Vegan News link - thanks for sharing it.

Enjoyed the vegetarian lunch article. I took my little niece and two nephews to see The Barnyard Party Animals (I think that's the name of the movie) today and was surprised that, as part of the movie, they explained what vegetarian and vegan was. Very interesting.

Emmy said...

Wow, your pics from your vacation are beautiful. I just love the pic with the seals. Look at how cute those seals are! I've never seen a seal in person outside of captivity (the zoo and Sea World). That is a fantastic picture of you on the rocks at Agate Beach! You look so happy :) That's a great article from the Washington Post. I'm with you on that last quote from the first grader...How cool she is pro-vegetable :)
