Twilight Zoo

Went to Kitchener-Waterloo, St. Jacob's, Elora and Fergus on Sunday with family. Elora had this cool art thing going on called the "Twilight Zoo" where a former special effects artist created creepy and ginormous lanterns. We went during the day, so things didn't look too creepy, but they get lit up at night! So cool! We didn't get to see them though... but here are some pics of the ones we saw. Enjoy!

Apparently this looks like a Dire Wolf from a TV show.

This belonged to a pirate ship

Same here

And here

Centipede... of sorts.

Did you know gods of death were sometimes depicted with horns?

Reminds you of one of those Egyptian statues of cats, doesn't it?

An arachnophobic's worse nightmare

OK. So this isn't creepy, but rather cute.

This is the creepiest one in my book

It's the Loch Ness Monster!! Last year it was floating on the river on rafts.

What is in the basket? I wonder...

This is a very close second in creepiness. Very close.

Photos 2

Just thought I'd share some pictures from the Thanksgiving weekend... it was so beautiful! Perfect lighting and weather for picture taking and hiking.

Thinking of Pink

When I think of 
I think of you: 
the smiling, 
manga loving, 

You are 
the personification 
of pink, 
the go-lucky ball 
of energy 
always looking at the world 
through rose coloured glasses: 
you dye the moments we have together 
in pink.

I wish we had 
more moments to share, 
more memories to create, 
more time together, 
but don't forget that 
even if you're leaving us, 
you're not rid of us yet! 

Good-bye, Veronica! We'll miss you!!! We won't forget the girl that (even if only for 3 years) dyed our world pink. Even as we grow older, a patch in the quilt we call "Life" will be coloured pink and have your name etched on it.
