It’s been quite a while since my last post. Although lots of things have been going on, not too many of them were noteworthy — at least, not in a good way.
Past posts have mostly been around our travelling adventures but, alas, there were none this year. It all started with a flood in our basement and proceeded through a number of unsavoury events, not only for us but for the world over.
We decided back in April to forgo our trip to the Arctic Ocean during the summer which was just as well since all the terrible fires in BC’s north, the Yukon and the Northwest Territories would have put a kibosh on that anyway. It’s a shame that the warnings about the consequences we will face due to climate change were ignored by those who could have averted this disaster. Well, don’t get me started — but we could have done so much better.
Now to the positive side of life. We have taken up a few activities to keep us going like walking, baking, making sour dough bread, classic cars, cross-stitching, photography and more. We will catch up on these over the next few posts.
Let’s start with our walks.
As you can see from the pictures, walks in Green Timbers Park never get boring. The Nature Centre has a a lot of information and a myriad activities for kids and adults. They lend fishing rods to kids so they can fish in the lake. You will often see staff walking around and showing people things they might not have noticed before. They introduced us to an app called ‘SEEK’ that will identify plants, fungi, insects, animals etc that you come across.
The birds that live in the park like to pose for pictures.
Do you have any idea what the object in the above photo is for? We had some ideas and then we asked one of staff. Ideas?
I suppose this is a good place to stop although I have many more photos of our walks. More to come…
