It appears that despite the hot /cold/hot/cold cycles and the intermittent rain and snow showers, that the yard is starting to turn from drab to fab. Long may it continue.

Breeze, Wheeze, Trees, Geese, Tease, Unease

All photos taken on April 28, 2022.

Our sense of timing for a walk to the lake was a bit off. The paths leading to the lake were busy and the High School Outdoor Ed. class were receiving canoe instructions. We were surprised the school instructors was not more cognizant that it was water bird nesting season. The least they could have done was move to the other end of the lake.

Connecting the Dots

All photos taken on April 28, 2022.

With Bunchberry Meadows still closed and the newness of Prospectors Point, we opted to do a “completer” walk today. Our English friend calls this “Connecting the Dots” or “Closing the Loop”. This walk was not quite a loop, but there were some dots at the beginning.

We knew we would arrive in Vancouver after prime cherry blossom viewing time, but we were not prepared for the floral display still in progress. As far as we know, we had never been in Vancouver in May before.

Fish & Ships

All photos taken on May 11, 2022.

Every time we are on the West Coast, we do our best to grab some fresh local seafood, wherever we can. On this date, we chose Go Fish near Granville Island. Arriving just before Noon, we managed to find available parking by the public pier and placed our order for fish and chips.

This is All Starting to Look Way too Familiar

All photos taken May 11, 2022.

No snow worries on the Coquihalla Highway on this date and only a few slow downs due to reconstruction after the November 2021 atmospheric river flooding. The weather was cloudy with a few sunny breaks and at 120 km/h (75 m/h)the road flew by.

Down Beside Talbot Lake

All photos taken on May 10, 2022.

We have stopped at Talbot Lake in Jasper in all kinds of weather in all seasons. May is always a time of renewal as winter turns into spring. We enjoyed a stop to eat our PB & J sandwiches and stretch our legs.

Westward Ho Once More

All photos taken on May 10, 2022.

The time had come for another 3,100 km drive out to the West Coast and back. Not sure why, but these trips almost always seem to start out with a bit of snow.

Saving Steps

All photos taken April 21, 2022.

We enjoyed the walk from Prospector’s Point, through the Imrie Property and along River View so much last week, we decided to do it again this week, but skip the 346 steps up and the 346 steps back down at the far East end. It was another stellar day.

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.
