- Eagles at Boundary Bay
Cheryl Lee and I had a fast and furious trip to Iceland and Scotland this summer. I haven't laughed so much (and gotten so wet!) in a long time. The scenery is spectacular, the people friendly and the food is yummy - what's not to love?

- Galiano 2015
We visited our friends Gary & Karoline at their cabin on Galiano Island. After 20 long years of no sightings, we finally saw whales! What an amazing sight. They were so close to us, we could hear them breathing. Bernd and Gary went down to the very bottom of the cliff on Active Pass and Karoline and I were one level up from them.

- Olympics & Chinese New Year February 14
What a gorgeous day today! For once, the weather cooperated for the Chinese New Year Parade and with the sunshine came throngs of people. Later, I went down to the Russian Pavilion and the Concord Pacific funzone. It was so warm we could qualify for the Summer Olympics!
- Olympics February 13
A mixed day emotionally. The best part of the day? Sitting by chance next to a grandmotherly volunteer who struck up a conversation with a little boy next to her. When it was time for him to leave, he said to her, with the biggest smile imaginable "I really enjoyed our chat" The worst? Seeing the vandalism that a group of anarchists from out of town did to our city.
- Olympic torch run
Quest for fire - The final day of the Olympic Torch run. I had a fun day following the torch through downtown Vancouver. Photo quality isn't very good as I was using our little point & shoot camera, instead of the bigger one (Bernd was using them taking 3D pix).

- Max the Cat
Here is the newest addition to the Simson household. His name is Max and he is about 10 weeks old. We got him from VOKRA - Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue. We call him Max because of his uncanny resemblance to Groucho Marx, and Marx became Max (thanks Sheenah!) He's affectionate, lively, goofy and funny. He and Simon are getting along amazingly well.
- Simson Christmas 2006
We had a lovely Christmas dinner and celebration at the Simson's this year. Christina and Jonathan were off on vacation with his family in the Dominican Republic, so we weren't quite all present.

- Simson Family Picnic 2006
Hot, sunny and not too windy on the other side of the park. Another great picnic. A few were missing, but we hope that by setting the date now (the 3rd Sunday in July) for next year, everyone will be able to come. Hey! It's never to early to start planning!

- Italy & Amsterdam
Bernd, myself and our good friend and neighbour Pat Mitchell had a wonderful trip to Italy and Amsterdam in May of 2005. We started in Rome, then spent a few days in Florence before moving on to Tuscany where we rented a "villa" in a vineyard just outside of Radda in Chianti for a week. From there, we took several daytrips around the area, as well as staying overnight in Cinque Terre. Next, we moved on to Venice for a few days, then Amsterdam before flying home. Here are some of the photo's that I took, broken down by area.
