The wonders of modern Canada...

With the new marriage laws, its interesting to see some of what might happen. Basically, some people expressed interest in taking advantage of the new marriage laws just for the tax benefits (although they've now cancelled the wedding). See Two heterosexual men in Toronto cancel "gay" wedding.

Anyone interested in watching this?

After getting home from the "photography" excursion, I walked down to Rogers' Video to grab a movie to watch sometime in the next few days. What I ended up with was a copy of Luther, a biography of Martin Luther about which I've heard some good things.

Not sure when I'll end up watching it, but post a comment or send an email if you're interested in joining me. I don't think that I'll get a chance to watch it tomorow, but basically any time after that is fair game.

A trip into the canyon...

Darren and I wandered of into the Fraser Canyon, in an excursion that started far, far too early in the morning and ended at a semi-reasonable time. The further we got was some point between Spences Bridge and Ashcroft.

One day's worth of insurance had been picked up Friday evening for the Davemobile, which provided the day's transportation. That said, given my 3 - 3 1/2 hours of sleep and Darren and I's different driving philosophies (yay! woohoo! vs. let someone else do it), Darren ended up doing essentially all of the driving. (An interesting tidbit: in one day Darren racked up more kilometreage on my car than I put on from the end of April to now).

The train count was reasonable, but the amount of photoage taken was slim (I think that I probably shot fewer of the trains than Darren did). Basically, CP was having issues around Kamloops that caused them to tie-down trains left, right, and center. That combined with some smoke from a little forest fire later in the day so weaken the light that was getting through.

It was definitely good to get out of the valley for a day or so, and also to give the camera a workout.
