Vancouver Things

Greetings Bloggies.

Some slices of life here. Last Wednesday I went down town. I had a good walk down Burard Street photographing my favorite down town building. The ever lovely Marine building, in all its Art Deco stylings. To any readers here who are or will be in Vancouver, take the time walk north to the water and check it out.

I also picked some berries on Saturday. Salmon berries I am told. I am not sure, what I do know is people eat them and the leaves look like raspberry plants. Generally they are raspberry like. Since Mr. Darkrooms birthday celebration was the following day and there was a planned pan cake breakfast I had a good reason to pick berries. Though honestly, I just like picking berries. Also there is something about a city where there is enough wild tucked away that a person still pick berries. I like it.

I should also not the racoon spotted west where I am, it was getting a solid Ka'ing at from some crows as I passed by. Causing me to wonder if they had fought over garbage.

It is precisely that balance of metropolitan, urban city, and total feeling of being close to Nature that makes this city such an absolute paradise. I love this place!

I saw a skunk on the way home yesterday. Thankfully it was not too edgy.

I love our visits there. It truly is an amazing area. On the way out from Deer Lake park we saw a sign with "Warning: Coyotes". Sure hope some life form will keep the geese under control!
