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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
