T took me behind the Ontario Science Centre and to the trails that lead from there down to Pottery Road's "Fantasy Farm". Along the way back we found these wooden, bridges, paths, etc to ride along (including one teeter-totter) which was just amazing! However, I soon learnt that my bike was NOT designed for something like this.

I tried to get photos of the flags of the countries we visited. The South Africa one above turned out nice, the Congo one though sadly wasn't blowing the same...

Suzy and I at her old high school in Kinshasa, RDC / DRC.

Cactus tree

For some reason this tree sorta gave me the creeps... I am below it looking up through it's odd branches.

This is what we left the train to... early Sunday morning Germany. All day it was rather empty. (As stated on my other site there is still no Sunday shopping in Germany so no one was about except the cleaning crews and us tourists. Those unlucky enough to be stuck there...)

You walk out of our hotel and turn left at the entrance. Passing the KFC on your left and the St Elmo's pizza on your right you see in front of you the Atlantic Ocean. Walking along this section of Sea Point, Capetown is just gorgeous! While we wandered along the waterfront I saw these rocks all over the place.. most of them cut so square.. it's scary. I loved looking at them and took a few pics from many directions.

Dan took the above picture at the Scarborough Civic Centre where we were officially (civilly) married.

Robbin Island, Sea Point hotel and Table View all highlighted to give a general layout. This is where we will be in less than 1 month!

Our hotel location in the Sea Point area of Cape Town.

The layout of the land looking south. Mariesade, do you feel it?

College days

I don't have many pictures from my time at Centennial College but here is one I took when I went back there to teach. This pic is of an ABB "pick and place" robot. We learned to program this machine to take a pencil and write our names on a piece of paper tied to a desk. This machine is often used in the automotive industry to for welding.

I know it may serve a need, but something about this was rather.. funny and sorta scary too. This truck trailer was sitting out behind a rest stop we found in Ohio.

Sunset (from Suzy)

I love the grey / colour mix here!

Wedding photos

The rest of the wedding photos that we choose to place online will be here. Suzy made that skyblog page so we had one location people could go to for the pics. Merci!

On the honeymoon #1, #1

At the deBoer's bed and breakfast in Niagara-on-the-lake, Ontario.

Honeymoon #1 was taken for 3 days after the wedding, #2 will be happening in January and February although we will have a bit of company with us then too!

This pic was taken while we were on the porch in front of ours and our neighbor's rooms.

He absolutely insisted on wearing the bowtie. He picked that whole outfit out himself. Rather sharp hmm?

Skydome / Rogers Centre

The view from the SkyPod level of the CN Tower in Toronto! Suzy took her mother and I up here as a nice little gift away from the details of the last month or so. It was nice.

I remember when going through all of our pics from this trip, (Suzy and I) that these 3 pics stood out to me...

1. Bird had just taken off and flown over the street vendor.

2. I loved those houses. This one obviously had a theme and in taking the pic a bird posed for us almost perfectly!

3. And then there is this one. The bird is almost perfectly in line with and as still as the mosque. I love this one.

Riki Taxi!

Click the pic above and you will see what was to the right of this one. I never realized that the red "van/car" in the pic was a Riki Taxi though! Suzy and I took one of these from Table Mountain down into the city itself. When you cannot find a taxi-bus you can always call one of these cheap "backpacker priced" taxi's to take you and prob at max 3 other people. It was an adventuresome ride!

This photo is of the inside of the Taxi facing the back. As you can see the rear is simply a door held shut by one bolt, and you sit on small seats to the side of the vehicle.

Just a look inside peering forward. Click the pic to enlarge it!

Kelp forest (from the bottom)

This is the actual view of what we saw all the time above the water. (Like here) This pic was taken in the Two Oceans Aquarium, RSA.

We went

The "fiances" at The Old Mill, where we will be married in just over a month!

The pic was taken on my cellphone which doesn't work that well in low light conditions as you can tell. I still thought it was good enough to post... though terribly grainy.

I tried...

I never noticed how the letters were stuck onto the keyboard til I took an upclose picture of them.

This is, I suppose, a signature picture if there ever was on. At least for online initials...

Something in the way...

There is something nice about the way they just happened to be standing here.

Trench run?

Since moving I acquired an Xbox system with the game Knights of the Old Republic. So since my mind is in a Star Wars place...this is what the long hallway at my work reminded me of.

(Photo taken with a Nokia 6682 phone - will explain later)

Pictures and blogger

It's official. I cannot upload any pictures from either Firefox or IE at home nor IE at work. I click to upload, choose the picture and then as it is loading... it simply freezes.

This is why it has been so long without an update. Just letting everyone know my frustration!

A pic from my sister Karen's concert from this past Sunday evening. She played about 6 songs at Holy Joe's in Toronto. I hope to be able to get some video up at some point from this show.

I love the lights above her, I think this is an awesome picture!
