Miscellaneous Pictures

The following pictures are non-car related. I just wanted to take a break from the car and show a few vacation and miscellaneous pics!

Happy Valentine's Day - 2016

Removed the halo and the harp and added the heart to my angel.


 

        

The Grandkids

This picture taken in 2008 shows my grandaughter Skylar explaining the outside world to her dog Casper.
He really does have all 4 feet on the floor!
Casper is about 1 month younger than Skylar.


 

 

Another picture of Skylar and Casper - 2009.


 

 

Skylar and Casper - 2011.


 

 

My grandson Caleb and Casper - 2014. Casper is like a huge stuffed toy that is alive!


 

 

Another picture of Caleb and Casper - 2015.


 

 

Vacations

When you live in Manitoba where it sometimes gets to -35 Celcius in the winter, you want to get away to a warmer climate for a week or two. In the past 7 years we have been to Mexico (Mayan Riviera) three times, Cuba twice, and the Dominican twice (all trips in January).
We found that the weather, food, people, and beaches in the Dominican were excellant. However the flight from Winnipeg was the longest (5 1/2 hours). This year we booked too soon and it cost us an extra $1000.00. Never book more than 3 weeks before your departure date!

The 2 pictures below are from the Dominican Republic (Punta Cana - January, 2015).


 


 
The picture below is the Toronto skyline from Lake Ontatio (July, 2015)


 


 
The next 3 pictures show the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg taken from the 360 rotating restaurent. The CMHR was still under construction.


 

 

The foreground building is the CN station.
