Had a wonderful walk yesterday with our friend M. She lives very close to our beautiful city park. We walked all around the gardens admiring the plantings this year, saw some turtles and baby ducks, and ended our visit over delicious beverages at Heist Coffee Co. on Courtney Street.

What a beautiful and delicious rainy day we are having. It’s been sunny (also beautiful) for such a long stretch, that a rainy day was extremely refreshing. We walked through the park and along the waterfront on our usual route. The air was alive with smells of the ocean and everything that is in bloom. Below is a pic from today, plus some random sunny day shots.

One of the smaller ponds at Beacon Hill Park. It had been empty for a while and the ducks seem happy to have it full again.

Duece is an awesome yellow dog who lives with her human, our friend Feather George, in Tofino BC. She was loving the water after a day of walking all around the city.
