I saw this en route to my run earlier this week, but forgot to post the photo. Behold, this cute little snail, chugging along the trail.
A shot taken as I was out and aboot on a walk. River in full tranquil mode.
After today’s run, I spotted a clutch of mushrooms, possibly aided by the showers on Monday and Tuesday. I snapped a few quick photos and here they are in a lovingly handcrafted mini-gallery.

This is looking north from the bailey bridge on Braid Street that connects New Westminster to Coquitlam. It offers a rather nice view of the Brunette River.
When Nic and I were at Colony Farm this past Saturday, the sky was dark and oppressive–but it didn’t rain! (That happened earlier, when we were at Piper Spit). As we walked along one of the trails, I spied a snail and thought, “How cute!” and took its picture. The phone version is below.
Later, we discovered there were a whole bunch of them, which makes seeing the first one less wondrous and delightful. But still cute!
Also, an example of what it looked like. Dark ‘n foreboding shot of the Coquitlam River:
I went to a physiotherapy assessment at UBC today (more on that later) and afterwards Jeff and I ate lunch on a bench in the Nitobe Memorial Garden. It was sunny and warm, and the scenery was tranquil and beautiful as all get-out (sorry, I ain’t no poet).
A cute little waterfall:
And a pond near to our bench:
Easter Sunday was a good day to be outside, if you liked torrential rain and high winds.
But by early evening the storm blew over and we saw a little light before the dark.
A bud sprouting at Maplewood Flats. More photos from Maplewood soon™.
My goal in walking around Hume Park today was to take shots of things I don’t normally take shots of, or to shoot things from different angles. One of those “see things in new ways” kind of things.
A photo I took this morning:
The beavers tried to take out this tree on the Brunette River–and another one a short distance away. I wonder why they never finished the job.
As seen from Sapperton Landing. This is where I like to see the snow: way up in the mountains, far away from me.
