Memories of happiness were triggered by the electricity in the air.
Bonnie Wyora snapped a photo from six decks before the rain sent her running home for shelter.
In this post, scroll through and guess which photo goes with the deck of which house.
Give yourself one hundred percent if you can identify your own deck.
Bonus points for all other decks.
Some perspicacious viewers may know the view from every deck.
These views of a night storm rolling in, reminded me that the aesthetic value of nature is hard to measure.
2. What is the price of the view of the ferns beginning to grow, or of the first salmon berries with their promise of a tart remembrance of past tastings?
5. Is there a value that can be placed on the sound of a stream pouring out of a culvert and rushing down a flue to the bottom of the hill. The sound of a tap that never stops running, that sound you can hear just a few feet away from the bottom of the Missionary Reach of the Stream?
6. Who values the pleasant surprise of meeting loved ones walking along the road, or seeing them travel up into the woods with groups of children searching out snail trails or trying to find a family of slugs?
7. How about the sound of the early morning songs of birds, as heard from the sleeping bags of those in tents or on the beach.
8. Where else is there an opportunity to carve out new paths for the Little Canadian Stream as its waters finally touch the shores of the Shuswap.
These are moments that are hard to monetize.
