One for Bobbie

This is the last in a series of shivery shots for blogbuddies. This one’s for Bobbie of The Right Blue.

Although she has lived in a number of places in her life — in Europe as well as North America — this deep-sea diver has finally settled down in Hawaii. Spending her most recent Christmas holidays in Colorado reminded Bobbie how much she missed snow. Which was, Not a whit.

So when I saw this commercial woodworking shop and its wares at the top of a rise, I knew I would have to post something about it. And that was the kernel which germinated into the idea of a photo for each of my active blogfriends.

Gazebos. For a province with two seasons, Winter and Mosquitoes. But the clincher is this close-up:

There you go, Bobbie! If ever you decide to move to eastern Quebec, you’ll never feel homesick again.

  1. LOL … I used to say we had four seasons in upstate New York: snow, mud, bugs, and Autumn.

    That’s good, James! More elaborated than the bi-seasonal “Winter and July” or “Winter and Construction” that E.g. and I always cite.

    A tiki hut in the snow, now that’s a first. šŸ™‚

  4. Eastern Quebec, you say? Maybe in summer… (I feel kind of sorry for that poor thatched structure.)

    Clever choice for a post dedicated to moi. I can see how the wheels in your noggin started turning when you saw that!

    We like to say that we may have even more in common with corals than our blog suggests: just like the corals, we ‘die’ when the ambient temperature falls below a certain threshold for a sustained period of time.

    You can imagine how it would’ve caught my eye, Gina!

    So I take it you’re not completely convinced, Bobbie? Don’t worry, I would never trade places with you, either. Now: about that city bridge I’m selling…

    Now then we have four seasons!

    Almost-winter, winter, still-winter, and construction šŸ˜€

    Somewhere with the hut and without the snow is very tempting right now.

    You said it, Shelley! Break out the ukeleles and the pineapple kebabs!
