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.

image

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

image

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.

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.

Created by nature, a photo is necessary to remind us how fortunate we are to live on this vibrant and wonderful planet.  Happy Friday everyone.

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.

Sunny September Seaside

It was a sunny Wednesday afternoon.  I had just finished my dental appointment and decided to take a quick stroll in my favourite seaside neighbourhood.

The faithful and hardworking bee was busy enjoying the nice weather.

Beautiful afternoon to be out and walk the seawall.

Looking east, there is Stanley Park, with Lions Gate Bridge immediate to the left.  On the right side is the Kitsilano/Point Grey area.

Hope everyone is enjoying his/her day, no matter where you are or whatever the weather.

Sunday in Vancouver

Another gorgeous weekend in Vancouver.  Temperature in the high 20’s, under a clear blue sky.  I was out with my daughter at our usual spot

image

Love the area, and I like to be able to experience all parts of nature in one close setting.  In a nearby neighbourhood, there is a community garden,

image

And this is right by an abandoned railroad track.

image

Everyone is out enjoying the sunshine, and our little friends are also out in full force.

Below are more photos from the garden:

Finally, who are our little friends from the above photo?  Here is the answer…
