Went outside to enjoy the fresh air and took some snapshots of birds in our yard. There were some creepers moving around the tree too, but they're fast!

There were a few other kinds of birds too. It's a busy tree! We need to put a bird silhouette on the kitchen window though. One bird flew into it and another had earlier on the weekend.

Explored the shoreline and ridge of North Glenmore Park this afternoon with +Nicole Soltys​. I enjoyed the warm wind and the sounds: rustling leaves, big waves hitting the shore, the train whistle and paddlewheeler from Heritage Park. Lots of pretty shrubs, flowers, and berries along the path. The park itself was green, but some partially submerged trees along the shoreline have turned bright yellow and looked beautiful.

We'll have to come back when the forest fire smoke from Washington state has cleared.

Spooked, yes, thanks to dark water! But I did it, I made it - just in case you fell in or something ;)

Enjoying Summer fire pit in the yard. Girls teased me for having my water bucket at the ready. Their first priority was getting their Instagram pics and then Snapchatting. Nicole sprinkled some sage on the fire.

+Gord Wait​​ No, some of the higher altitude communities did yesterday, but Bowness is in a protected pocket. There's micro-climates here just like in the Lower Mainland. We've had a lovely summer.

View looking SW from the ridge along Bowmont Park. Canada Olympic Park on the horizon left and the Bow River Bridge on Stoney Trail NW is on the horizon right. We would have stayed longer for better lighting conditions and to enjoy the view, but the mosquitos were eating us!

We're registered for a guided walking tour of the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary this afternoon. The sanctuary reopened on July 30th with some parts still recovering from flood damage in 2013. Came across this lovely illustration by +Ryan Pearse.
Collaborative project between ACAD, City of Calgary and Inglewood Bird Sanctuary. Focusing on migration routes based around food, habitat, mating, social relationships etc.

"Nor should seniors be treated as if they were feeble-minded or childlike. The residence’s administrator, Donna Bennington, says one issue behind the new rule is that many seniors have financial problems and spend their money on vet bills and pet food, while going to food banks themselves. However, unless a court has declared a senior to be mentally incompetent, how these residents spend their money is no one’s business, but their own. The fact they would divert their meagre funds to pet food and vet bills shows just how much their cats and dogs mean to them, and why they shouldn’t be deprived of their pets."

I woke up early around 4 am and I feel if you're awake, then get up. I watched a biographical documentary on Netflix: Far Out Isn't Far Enough: The Tom Ungerer Story. I found his life and work very interesting and I'm happy to see he's still active. Children's books, political posters, erotica.

I was reading Sunday news and comic books in the yard, but I kept being distracted by sparrows fluttering between branches, fence, and the lawn.

+Eric James Soltys and I had a delightful afternoon walking along the Glenmore Reservoir in North Glenmore Park ~ my new, favourite park. We are going to return once the hazy smoke disappears.

Awww. Poor neighbour's kitty is outside in the rain. I don't feel too sorry though, because the big fella poops in our yard. #Caturday

Snapshots from the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary this afternoon. Our Calgary Parks guide Meagan was very informative and our small group of 11 people had a lovely 1-hour walking tour.

Hockey in August! Team Canada had a 4-1 victory over Russia in the first game of the IIHF World Junior Showcase. Great sport to watch when it's hot and muggy outside.

Introduction
Hi, my name is Eric and I live with my wife +Nicole Soltys and our cats Molly and Lucy. I enjoy hockey, scenic hikes, road trips, comics, movies, and games. I'm a fan of the Montreal Canadiens, Marvel, and Google.

We recently (Feb 2015) moved from Vancouver to Calgary and are eager to explore a new province.
