Deer Lake, Burnaby on Sunday

October this year (2013) has been relatively mild, with the exception of the heavy morning fog that lasted about two weeks in mid-month.  We were again treated to a wonderful sunshine on the last weekend in October.

After a satisfying dim sum, we headed to Deer Lake in Burnaby.  There are signs constantly reminding us that although we live in a city, we are essentially living in nature and co-exist with nature.

Lots of birds also show up to enjoy the perfect weather.  Seagulls and Canadian geese are among the spectators.

As I stood there with my daughter, a few of them started to come near, as they thought we might have some treats.

But sorry, too early for Halloween, although excellent costumes and great on being who you are.  Nice gully.

We then continued our walk around the lake along the trail.

Not sure if it’s visible, but there was a squirrel on the top of the bench, getting early treats from other people.

A view towards the north and there are Grouse Mountain and Seymour Mountain in sight.

It took us about a good hour to finish the loop, but we did it in a slow pace.  Great day to be out in the nature and spending time with family and friends.

秋葉/Autumn leaves

綠色的葉子,在秋陽的照耀下,染紅了葉沿。

Green leaves, basked under the autumn sun, have the edges simmered in red.

Foggy Friday

It has been foggy pretty much all this week in Vancouver, with the fog forming in the mornings throughout the day, burning off in the afternoons, and reforming in the evenings.

Here at the Harbourside, we get a glance at the Vancouver skyline.

Here is another look towards the east.

The fog gives all the more autumnly feel and certainly in time for Halloween.

霧濛濛的天氣也讓秋意更濃,增添幾許惆悵。

Richmond on Sunday

Basking in the unusual but welcomed autumn sunshine, this past Thanksgiving has the Thanksgiving-y element.  We go for a satisfying lunch.  After lunch, we and my parents walk along the river bank in Richmond.  Beautiful day and perfect temperature.

Lunch under the September sun

September 26, 2013, four days after the fall equinox.  We are treated with a 18-degree sunny day with few clouds in sight.  Leaves are still green, though some have already fallen to the ground to introduce the change in season.

Autumn in the Air

Vancouver has been somewhat cool and wet for the past week, with the month-long dry weather ended followed by typical West Coast style, and sometimes monsoon-like, rainfall.

Temperature has been hovering between 5 – 15 degrees Celsius.

Cannot resist but snapping another photo of the beautiful red leaves.

Mixing Colours at Its Finest

Late September, sunny day, mixing of green and red.

To say it’s beautiful is an understatement.
