溫哥華的豔陽


溫哥華這一個星期都是烈日當空的好天氣,雖比不上台北的潮濕悶熱,但曬上個十五分鐘可也是會汗流浹背。

溫哥華的七月濃霧

七月份的溫哥華溫度合宜,陽光充足,月均雨量也不多是十幾毫米,更別說能與濃霧二字聯想在一起。但,這濃霧卻沒有秋意,反而傳著陣陣的燒柴味。沒錯,森林大火也能間接影響到溫哥華。

今年天氣實在太過乾燥,剛過的冬天也未能帶來太多降雪及降雨,使得卑詩省呈現缺水的情況。這連帶的讓樹木及森林處於乾柴烈火的緊急狀態。打火英雄捨我其誰的行為是推崇不嫌多的,但更要提醒的是那些抽煙烤肉的人,務必確認菸蒂/炭火火苗完全熄滅後才可離開,這樣不僅可以降低森火發生的機會,也可幫助降低空氣污染。

有幸住在溫哥華這個氣候宜人的地方,別忘了要好好珍惜。

Bathing under the warm winter sun

Bathing under the warm winter sun

The weather in Vancouver has been relatively mild this winter, comparing to the rest of the country.  With the exception of a few cold winter days, the temperature has been warm enough to float between the freezing mark to the low tens.

Enjoy your weather, wherever you might be, because any weather is beautiful, and having a positive attitude with nice weather only makes one happier.

This past Sunday, riding another hot spell and sunny weather, we headed to one of our favourite local attractions, Granville Island.

This was taken on the deck outside the food court area.

Whistler Daytrip by Rocky Mountaineer – Part 2

(CONTINUED FROM HERE)

I took some photos which might not have been possible otherwise travelled by car.

This is The Chief, a famous local attraction and lots of people hike/climb, admiring its beauty and presence.

As mentioned, three hours later, we arrived at Whistler.  It was raining too.

Beautiful raindrops sitting on the leaves, and the rain cleaning the air leaving a refreshing scent.

We didn’t really have a plan once we arrived in Whistler, until we saw this

Lost Lake Shuttle - it's free~

Lost Lake Shuttle – it’s free~

Yes, free shuttle service, a rare sight for most BC residents.  We checked with the bus driver, who was very kind, outgoing, and yes, it was a free service.  He also jokingly said that he might not be able to find the way, as he might be “lost.”  It was about a five minute ride, and then we arrived at Lost Lake.

It was breezy and warm, add family, and you have a memorable trip.

Soon it was time to say goodbye and make our way back home.

On the way home (on the train), these sceneries were captured:

This concluded our little one-day trip to Whistler by train.  Unforgettable experience, and we were all very fortunate enough to be able to see things from a different angle.  Special thanks to our conductor David, who provided excellent service and detailed storytelling during the trip.

Whistler Daytrip by Rocky Mountaineer – Part 1

The day started cloudy and damp, and it was raining the night before.  Nonetheless, we booked this one-day, round trip to Whistler on board the famous Rocky Mountaineer.  The route we travelled on is named the Sea to Sky Climb.  More on the name later.

So we gathered at the North Vancouver train station at 7:30 in the morning.  The sun was poking through, and people started to gather, waiting to be boarded.

The train started rolling at approximately 8:00am and we were all very excited about this adventure.

Due to the protocol (speed limit), the train could only travel at 40 km/h (25 mi/h), and as a result, a normal 90-min trip by car from North Van to Whistler took an amazing three hours.  Talking about getting my money worth on the train.

Now, the Sea to Sky Climb.

It is named because from approx Squamish to Whistler, the elevation increases by 700 meters, roughly the same height as The Chief (Stawamus Chief to be more official).  That is quite a climb.

(TO BE CONTINUED…)

Standing tall, very tall

Another picture-perfect Sunday.  Nothing but the blue sky.  As usual, I am at one of my favourite places in Vancouver, the Granville Island.

Apparently, this seagull enjoys the weather very much.

Hope everyone is enjoying his/her Sunday as much as I am.
