Siwash Rock at 32 million years old is an enduring Vancouver landmark.
The Stanley Park seawall: 9km of flat uninterrupted running, no cars, and just beautiful scenery.
In my past post on Vancouver’s new public bike share system (Mobi) I questioned whether I would ever have a need to use it. I still haven’t used Mobi but there seems to be a lot of people who have a need for such a service. Bravo Vancouver.
I have noticed a number of condo buildings in the Yaletown area have replaced the real grass on the boulevard with artificial grass. I guess artificial grass has its benefits but is this really helping Vancouver’s action plan to become the Greenest City by 2020?
Unfortunately Summer Wind was blown off course.
What is your interpretation of this sign on the False Creek seawall. I think it’s a spiritual saying something like “Be here now” popularized by baba ram dass.
Art doesn’t have to be commissioned and can happen out if the blue as we discovered on the Baden Powell Trail.
On our hike to Cabin Lake on Cypress Mountain we ran into a flock of grouse, “Sooty Grouse” to be exact. I not sure how intelligent they are as they barely flinch as you walk past them on the trail.
Montreal is a fantastic city for public art. One of my favourites is Illuminated Crowd by Raymond Mason.
Wow what a great experience: swimming in an alpine lake on a 28 degree celsius day – checkout Cabin Lake on Cypress Mountain.
This sign in my neighbouhood confirms that we’re sharing this city with other critters.
Another classic – 1965 Buick Riviera – spotted in Parksville.
People taking advantage of the free yoga classes every Thursday night in the summer at Lonsdale Quay.
I’m not sure if the city should be letting children play on False Creek. Recent testing of the water had an E. Coli value of 385 for False Creek East.
Something you don’t see often: a pirate ship on the high seas of False Creek.
The rocks off Caulfeild in West Vancouver is a nice spot to swim on hot days with great views and deep water.
It’s good to see that the Kitsilano Coast Guard station has reopened.
For those of you worrying about the good weather coming this weekend (weatherman is predicting up 30 degrees Celsius), here’s a photo that I took snowshoeing on Dog Mountain last January, that will cool you down.
Recently the city of Vancouver installed separators between pedestrians and cyclists on this False Creek portion of the Seaside Route, a good thing because cyclists don’t always follow the rules of the road.
Saw this beautiful Cadillac in Portland, Oregon. The Americans don’t build them like this anymore.
