SkyWatch Friday ~ If you don't like the weather just wait 15 minutes!

 There is a saying on Haida Gwaii that is frequently repeated and very true.. "if you don't like the weather just wait 15 minutes".
 Haida Gwaii is a place of micro climates and influenced largely by the winds and the ocean so change is rapid and frequent.
 Our daily walks are generally an hour long and cover a three kilometer circuit travelling north along the beach to Naikoon Provincial Park, walking inland through Misty Meadows and  
 then coming out to return along the edge of the dunes.  In the course of the walk we went from ebbing cool overcast skies to warm blue skies and then it rained all afternoon and evening!
 For more beautiful and fickle skies why not join us a

Wonderful shots of an idyllic place. I like the last shot best because I firmly believe adding a Golden Retriever to any picture makes it come alive!

Beautiful shots of a gorgeous place.

My favorite is the 2nd shot - because I see a bunch of hearts in those clouds!!!

I'm going to link this up with Guest Heart Thursday, if that's okay with you!!! Those hearts are too perfect to not share!

Constant blue sky is actually rather wearing. It's refreshing to the spirit to see changing cloudscapes.
