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.
