We walked the seawall.
We cycled the seawall.
We swam in the sea, in mountain lakes and walked in the forest.
All were cool and refreshing.
There are a lot of pine trees in Canada.
This is classic bear country.
Not to mention cougars......
Canada is a dangerous country.......
Or so my inner voice tells me whenever I try to walk alone in the forest.
Best to walk in a group.
Which makes contemplative landscape photography almost impossible for one who is easily spooked.
Playing with a snow shovel on the beach and making pirate ships out of driftwood was much more appealing.
In Harrison Hot Springs I found the Sasquatch less of a threat.....
The Sasquatch is a much revered creature with a conveniently sized 2 metre arm span.
The hot springs were closed...... not so convenient.
As were the kayaks and bicycle hire.
But my son and I did find ourselves on the set for a new movie 'Solitary'.
On asking, we were initially told that they were filming 'a movie' .
I for one can't wait. Who needs 007?

When walking alone I decided to 'notice what I notice'.
I am known for noticing traffic cones and small things.
I cannot be the only person to think that the cones of Vancouver have been renamed for the pandemic.
The other thing that I notice in Canada is deciduous trees; mainly because there are so few of them.
I miss them when away from England. They are mostly found only in parks and gardens.
I enjoy the changes of autumn. The beauty of a single leaf left on the tip of a branch.
Enough. Time to stop writing.
I shall spend the rest of the day learning some different types of Japanese and Chinese bindings.
I will leave you with my video '14 days'..... from my first quarantine.
