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 birdContinue reading “Breeze, Wheeze, Trees, Geese, Tease, Unease”

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.

Wild World

All photos taken on March 29, 2022. There are some Bunchberry walks where you can hear the wildlife all around you as you walk, but never see a bird or animal.

Auspicious

All photos taken on February 1, 2022. Stanley Park is a good place to spot Great Blue Herons, due to having a nesting area adjacent and such a large body of water (Lost Lagoon).

All of a sudden, I am rousedContinue reading “Benji’s Tail of Lost Lagoon”

This Walk’s For the Birds

All photos taken on January 27, 2022 in Vancouver. The birdlife in Vancouver is prolific, no matter what time of year you go. This trip was no exception.

Chicks Really Dig My Car

All photos taken on February 17, 2022. I have a thing for this old 1939 Plymouth Mayflower hulk in Bunchberry Meadows, I guess, but it appears I am not the only one. We opted to stop beside it for our picnic lunch this day, as the hollow is sheltered from wind and weather. Our littleContinue reading “Chicks Really Dig My Car”

Meltdown

All photos taken February 9, 2022. It is a toss-up on which type of winter trail is harder to walk on – thick fluffy snow or melted snow and ice. The thick snow slows you down and makes it feel like you are walking uphill on a sand dune. The melted snow and ice makeContinue reading “Meltdown”
