Hi! Here I am in Vancouver, enjoying the Northern Hemisphere summer. It has been great to see the sun and escape winter for a few days.
I took a short walk around a bit of Stanley Park, avoiding the geese and luckily not spotting a coyote!
We visited the VanDusen Botanical Gardens on Saturday where I took lots of photos…and found this ‘Scottish Shelter’. It was, at least, a place to pause and rest.
We also came across this, the Swedish Fountain, that was a gift from the Swedish Folk Society, and was originally situated near the entrance. The panels represent the pioneers contribution to local industry, but there is also one with a Viking ship if you look closely. The construction was moved to its present position in 2008, surrounding as ash tree.
These totem poles can also be found in the gardens. They were specially commissioned, and sit in a shady glade.
Good night from Vancouver! See you soon!
