A Happy Canada Day from a sleepy Sora the Cat. Chilling out on this rainy day watching a lemon octopus pasta creation on TV Japan. I’m sure Sora would love octopus, doubtful about the lemon ;-).
UPDATE: Well, this has been the dreariest Canada Day in my memory .
Overcast, raining, and staying home.
For much of the day, we emulated Sora the Cat and snoozed, and watched too much TV. . .
Sora was a lovely lass, alternating laps and sharing her warmth with both of us. Thanks, kid!
Cut short today’s walk with this looming overhead. . .
I was standing on the bridge at the mouth of Byrne Creek and several mallards zoomed down the creek toward me.
I took a ramble in Fraser Foreshore Park today and saw lots of thimbleberries and assorted blossoms.
Spotted this beauty stalking a fly trapped in its web on a bridge in Fraser Foreshore Park in Burnaby.
I’m thinking a kind of orb weaver?
Sora the Cat and I had lots to look at while hanging out on the balcony this morning.
Crow and cat size each other up. . .
Yumi spotted this cute hummer checking out blossoms on our three-hour ramble of trails at Centennial Beach in Delta, BC, today.
Uh, don’t think I’m gonna fit, eh? 🙂

Sweet story, with giggles and moistening eyes now and then.
I can’t put my finger on it, but if Hollywood did this it would likely be over-the-top silly.
But there’s a tradition in Japanese film for understatement.
This could have been a really sappy movie, and yes, it is a goofy, tear-jerking romance, but it all came together, at least for us.
It was also fun to try to pick up on visual references in homage to films from long ago.
Much of the theme is the power of film to transport us to other places, and the struggle that writers have to achieve moving, engaging scripts that leave an audience fulfilled.
BTW, the movie poster is little like the film, which is all about B&W slowly blossoming toward muted colors. ..
