It is difficult to believe we have maybe less than half of our summer left. It started sort of early, then cooled down for a couple of weeks. And then the heat came back for real.
Sharing some of the photos I took in the past month or so here. Hope you like them.
We had another super nice day in Vancouver. This time I was at Queen Elizabeth Park. Lucky I got there before they increase the special parking fee to $20 a day for Olympic events during Feb 16 to Feb 27.
Winter in Vancouver rains a lot. It is so wet that it feels extra cold. And because it is so wet, it is particularly difficult to take photos. I have been slowly accumulating some photos over the past few weeks from random days of dryness and here are some of the Winter photos in Steveston to share with you.
Have you been to Garry Point Park? It is a popular park at Steveston where lots of festivity happens in the Summer. In the Winter, it is also a very good place to see the sunset in case you miss the sun (a typical situation for most who live in Vancouver).
Got some photos of migrating bird sighting to share with you. These were taken back in October. Moving put taking photos on a backseat and now I am catching up to post photos I took last month.
Some of us have regular day jobs, and like many of you, I commute to and from work using public transit. I used to drive every day but found that is not a very good use of my time. Driving needs constant concentration on the road, that means I cannot listen to podcast, I cannot check email, I cannot follow tweets, I cannot read books. So I abandoned driving to and from work since 2003. Although commuting takes time too, during rush hours, driving is not that much faster as long as your routine is the same.
I remember about the same time last year we came to Whytecliff Park for a bit of leisure walk. I always like to pick a crisp day in Autumn to come here for some reason. This year is no exception.
We came at around 5:30 PM and it was just about the right time to wait for sunset.
