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:
No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, I did skip a week last Sunday. But then it was my birthday and my parents and brother were in town so I figured I could do with a week off. And of course because they were here I did a lot more touristy things than I had been doing previously.
As well as the Downtown area of Vancouver and some shopping we walked along the waterfront and I showed them the Olympic Cauldron and some of the sculptures there and around the new conference centre (it was night and none of my pics of the area have come out well – I’ll have to go again during the day as there’s a sculpture of an Orca whale by Douglas Coupland I want to have a decent picture of).
