Butchart Gardens – Victoria 2010

I am still quite behind on the updates I have promised you.  Steamcon tasks and wrists that are being problematic, are only a few of my excuses.  I will soon be back on track but in the meantime, I give you some lovely photos from Butchart Gardens in Victoria B.C.  We spent a pleasant morning there before heading off to Victoria Steam Exposition.  You can see the full gallery here.  I borrowed the lovely parasol from Designs by Victoria.

A word on the apocalypse

Greetings!  I apologize for my absence but I have been traveling and am about to embark on another journey to Portland to see a concert by  the fabulous airship pirates of Abney Park.

Me with Abney Park at World Steam Expo

I will post a review of all my journeys when I return.  In the meantime, I found a very well written explanation about why, generally speaking, post apocalyptic is not steampunk.  I have been trying to write up my thoughts on this matter and may still, but for now go and read the enlightening text by G.D. Falksen.
