On a Wild Goose Chase

All photos taken on April 20, 2022. It is funny the things you see after a late spring snow storm. We waited until the walks were mostly clear before walking down to the lake. To continue reading, please click here. Alternatively, click here to go to new Blog Site.

Prospectors Point

All photos taken on April 13, 2022. With Bunchberry Meadows closed for 7 weeks and Tucker’s Field still thawing out, we thought we would give this place another look. If the trail petered out at the top of the river bank, we could always walk the Devonian Trail to Tuckers Field. This spot is indicatedContinue reading “Prospectors Point”

Battle Stations

All photos taken during our 4.6 km (3 mile) walk to Four Seasons Park and back. The forecast had been calling for rain and a rain/snow mix, starting at 4:00 PM yesterday, but not much of that appeared. However, the promised NW winds gusting to 50 k/h (31 m/h) did appear and had been howlingContinue reading “Battle Stations”

Last Chance Forest Walk

All photos taken on March 31, 2022, the day before Bunchberry meadows closes for a 7 week rest. We hummed, we hawed, we hawed, we hummed and then we decided we would go for a second forest walk in one week. We would go early, before the heat of the day made conditions too sloppyContinue reading “Last Chance Forest Walk”

Flashback – Japan 2009 -ENGAKU-JI TEMPLE, Kamakura

From Kita-Kamakura station, we walked the short distance to Engaku-ji Temple, a Zen Buddhist temple founded in 1282.

Character

All photos taken on March 2, 2022. Walking through Bunchberry to get away from the current news cycle, I realized that the trees in the forest are of much better character than many narcissists, who masquerade as world leaders. No need to say more, the definition and the photos say it all so much better.Continue reading “Character”

What a Howl!

All photos taken on February 28, 2022. Boredom, malaise, lethargy, whatever you opt to call it, it is a terrible thing. As winter dragged on, Covid sapped a lot of our enthusiasm and recent world events have just about finished us. It was one of those “why bother days” when I suggested we go onContinue reading “What a Howl!”

Sober Reminder

Photo taken February 1, 2022. Walking around Vancouver, we passed this memorial to Every Child Matters. We stopped to pay our respects. I need say no more. This is a sad chapter in Canada’s history, as well as that of many other colonial nations. To continue reading, please click here. Alternatively, click here to goContinue reading “Sober Reminder”
