The sun setting from the peak of Mount Maxwell on Saltspring Island last weekend. The island is a short ferry ride away from Vancouver and so worth a visit.

Seen around town: a bird’s eye view of the Stanley Park seawall this past weekend. The seawall is grade separated with lanes for folks on bikes and foot.

The clouds may be grey and the rain heavy, but the trees and plants here in Vancouver are putting on a light show right now. Call me a fan of decaying chlorophyll.

Earlier in the summer we hiked the Ripple Rock Trail near Campbell River on Vancouver Island. It’s a short, 3-hour hike that ends on a rocky bluff overlooking Seymour Narrows. In 1958, it was the site of the largest non-nuclear human generated explosion of all time. It’s a beautiful place to eat a sandwich, feel the breeze, and watch birds of prey flying overhead. We were lucky enough to see a pod of transient orcas swimming up the Narrows while we were there.
