Nymph Falls

We’ve been walking every day, doing some painting, and playing some music. I played once more on Sunday evening at Roy’s Towne Pub. What a great group of musicians! The open mike is hosted by Judy and Bruce Wing, an award-winning duo from the area. Bruce backed me on guitar this week on Sunglasses After Dark while I sang and played bass ukulele. Thanks Bruce!

We also spent an afternoon sketching and painting at Nymph Falls.

The falls are a series of cascades on the Puntledge River. A salmon ladder was blasted into the rock many decades ago. We sat by the ladder for our sketching.

Many people have created wonderful balanced rock sculptures in the river. We marveled at how these creations withstand the force of the river surging around their base.

My eye always goes to the closeup views.

Some visitors literally get into the river!

We also had a visit from a friendly four-legged sun bather.

It was a great afternoon!

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    I like the waterfalls but nothing beats the portrait of Jean at work. Just great! It seems extremely peaceful. Now, I am like Brian and am waiting for some photos of your respective art production.

  3. This one of my favorite water sites.
    Can be a bit too crowded.
    Any photos of painting yet?
