I'll eventually post some actual words about my trip to British Columbia. For now, here's a bit of what I've seen.
AT STANLEY PARK (VANCOUVER)
|Chief Wakas Pole|
|An invitation to bust my ass. I declined.|
|Raccoons, which are even worse than squirrels.|
AT THE GRANVILLE ISLAND MARKET
|Ginormous carrots, with a regular one for scale.|
|A delicious salmon chowder pot pie from A La Mode|
MEANWHILE, BACK AT MY HOTEL
|The central library, inspired by the Coliseum|
|An apologetic bus|
|A rather jaunty walk sign|
|Frenchie's House of Poutine.|
Not sure why I find this so amusing, but I really do.
WELCOME TO SQUAMISH
|This is Sienna, my hosts' dog.|
She's very sweet, and does not seem to mind having her picture taken.
|Outside, trees, and several different sizes of rocks.|
Note the ginormous one peeking out of the clouds in the background.
|More autumn, and an inviting pathway.|
Well, not too inviting. There are bears and cougars out there!
Classes start Monday -- more soon! (Unless I get eaten by a bear or a cougar.)
