I only did a few tourist things this week. One was a visit to the Police Museum which turned out to be a very interesting, if small, floor of the old Coroner’s Court Building. Included on site are the city’s original morgue and autopsy laboratory, which includes the forensic table where Errol Flynn was declared dead.
I achieved quite a few little trips this week. The first was a long walk across Burrard Bridge, taking lots of photos as I went:
I went on quite a few excursions last week. The first was walking across Granville Bridge to take photos of the view I always see when I’m on the bus:
The weather has been strangely patchy this past week – lots of warm sun mingled with days where it’s done nothing but rain. In fact one day last week was apparently the wettest day in Vancouver for over 5 years.
However, on one of those sunny days a friend and I went for an extremely long walk and explore of the University of British Columbia campus, going from Wreck Beach all the way round to Jericho Beach. It took us quite a while, particularly as we were traversing rocky beaches and doing a fair amount of climbing over boulders, but we kept up a steady pace and the scenery was definitely worth it, as you can see for yourselves below:
Not much to report this week. I did do some exploring of Kitsilano and ventured to a few places I hadn’t been before which proved to be a great spot for views of Downtown Vancouver, as evidenced below:
There hasn’t been much opportunity for photo-taking this week. I did go and see the Brazilfest happening downtown on Saturday but I wasn’t impressed enough to take any photos. Instead have a couple of random photos I don’t think I’ve posted here before.
The weather has been pretty sweltering here so I’ve been keeping in the shade as much as possible. I spent much of the last week on Bowen Island, so have some random pics of the scenery out there:
Not a lot been going on this week. The weather has been ridiculously hot for most of the week, though we finally had some rain over the weekend which has hopefully helped quell some of the 400 wildfires currently blazing in British Columbia. I did take a few photos of the haze that fell over Vancouver the other day though, as you can see below.
Till next week…
I’ve been a bit busier this week, and I actually do have photos to share. No news on the job front, except from an interview last week that I’m still waiting to hear if it develops into anything. It’s a long holiday weekend here at the moment so nothing may turn up till the middle of next week anyway.
So, I took to wandering around Stanley Park one day. I have done the walk around the seawall but I haven’t actually gone inside the park much, except to go to the Aquarium, so I took a wander around and went to visit the Rose Garden.
Well it seems another week has gone by and I don’t have any pictures to show for it. Lots of jobs applied to but still no responses. I have however seen the new movie Inception twice now which is at least a change of pace. It’s a fabulous movie and if you haven’t already seen it I urge you to do so.
So, till next week…
