To Vancouver and British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast

April 25, 2013

Yesterday in the wee hours, we arrived in Vancouver, British Columbia. We slept a few hours in this beautiful house.

I walked around Trout Lake Park with Jay, Atty and Bella. In December 2011, I observed a perching eagle here. No such luck today, but the park is lovely in springtime.

Old Bella stood on the walkway and grazed the tops off tender shoots of grass.

Later, waiting to board the ferry at Horseshoe Bay, we watched at least three bald eagles as they circled high above us.

On the ferry, the mountains shone.

We disembarked at Langdale, and drove north up the coast.

Of course, there are always crows wherever you go in the northwest.
