Each year one of the trees along Whiffin Spit is decorated for the season.  Decorations are saved each year by wonderful volunteers and rehung the following year.  Anyone can add a decoration to the tree.

This is the first year we have seen it decorated as we are usually here at differnt times of the year.

When our grandson was in pre-school a couple of years ago, the class made ornaments and had an outing to hang them on the tree.  We were able to find the ornament this year.  He was very excited to see his name on the ornament.

It is wonderful to see the decorated tree as we walk down Whiffen Spit.  Is there a decorated outside tree where you live?

I’m doing this post from my ipad, something I don’t usually do.  The format is a bit wonky and photo sizes are a bit different than usual. Apologies if it is a bit difficult to view on whatever device you are using.

Whiffin Spit is also a fantastic place to see birds, ducks and herons.  I took lots of photos with my camera and will share some when we return home.  These photos were taken with my iphone.

I’m sharing with Mosaic Monday.

It’s the last one till 2018.  Happy holidays.

    • You will love a visit to Wiffin Spit Lorrie. Take an ornament with your name and date to hang on the tree. I saw about the snow, our daughter is really hoping it happens and the grandkids want to make a snowman. You can bet I’ll be taking lots of photos if it does snow. In 2011 when we were here in November it snowed on her birthday.

  1. What a great place to visit and what a treat to see the tree decorated and to find your grandson’s ornament. I find blogging using just my iPhone and ipad quite challenging too but when we’re on vacation needs must I suppose, you’ve produced a grand post this week so kudos to you!
    Merry Christmas from Normandy, see you in 2018.

  2. Linda, I love the tree and what a great idea. Wouldn’t it be nice to see small town to do that, it would make a great gathering place and conversation maker. Whiffin Spit looks like a great place for a walk about.

    Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year. to you and your family’s first Christmas together in Vancouver

    • There are lots of trees along Whiffin Spit, but it seems they have always used this tree and haven’t run out of space yet. I imagine some ornaments fall apart after a few years and don’t make it back to the tree the following year. It’s a huge tree and there was still plenty of space.
