Anyone who knows me well knows I am a self confessed hotel snob. It’s actually quite bad, I have champagne taste on a lemonade budget. However, over the years I’ve come to love tiny properties and BnBs, for lots of reasons but my accommodation last night summed it up completely.
We had been driving 4 hours, then did a 2km walk to a waterfall, we then drove to our ‘home’ for the night. By home I mean Clearwater Springs Ranch, I wish I could tag them but they do not do social media, if you look through my stories I have added a link to some of the photos! We were met by two smiling hosts, Kurt and Tania from Belgium who quit their life in Europe and moved to Wells Gray Park in British Columbia and started up a BnB in a gorgeous log cabin.
We were exhausted, we are a week in and our bodies are starting to feel it. We wanted an afternoon to just relax. And relax we did. In our pretty lodge was a huge viewing window, you can see across the valley and onto the mountains ahead, we watched the hummingbirds play, listened to the frogs, and we spent 15 minutes watching a black bear playing in the field right in front of us 🐻 I can’t even tell you how amazing it was, we looked through the binoculars and could see every detail, it was a moment to just be in rather than document. I have instantly fell inlove with this beautiful part of the world, and I don’t think I am even scared of the bears anymore, they just want to go about their daily business and eat their dandelions 🤷🏻♀️
So today was a toss up between posting a picture of the most incredible waterfall I’ve ever seen or a picture of this view. The view won because I think this moment was the most peaceful I have felt in a long time.
Wells Gray Park is much quieter than its neighbouring national parks but is just as beautiful. This is rugged territory where you can get up close and personal with nature. I just wish I had longer here!

Maybe it’s about time to let it go and just walk away....
Сходили вчера на "бесплатную" ночь музеев. Сначала мы были в Цейхгаузе, после этого в Музее Культуры Астрахани.
Что понравилось: 👵🏼бабульки, сидящие в углу каждой комнаты, как-будто вросшие в это здание, дополняют атмосферу старины. Они все выглядели настолько одинаково, что даже нелепо.
(Да, это все, что мне понравилось).
Что не понравилось: 💸если вы хотите, чтобы люди просвещались, сделайте выставки хотя бы раз в год действительно бесплатными (вход в Цейхгауз был 350р., в Музей Культуры 100р., при чем цены очень разнятся с теми, что указаны на сайте). #justsaying
В целом #Астрахань несколько выросла почти за 3 года моего отсутствия. Все больше людей танцуют на Набережной (при чем много и пожилых), много новых высоток, новых развлекательных заведений. Может быть ещё 3 года и у города уже будет уровень "нормально".
В общем-то, стало немного, но лучше. Имхо.
А кто-нибудь ещё был вчера в музеях? #ночьмузеев#astrakhan_people#astrakhan_city
Turkey vultures are such incredible birds. Did you know they don’t kill their prey? Their feet look more like chicken feet, so they look for carrion that is fresh. They can also smell carrion around a mile away. They are beautiful and impressive birds. Was fortunate to spend time with these two amazing vultures.
