day 764 – in between rain

image

sneaking in a stroll in between the rain and sitting upon the rocks on the lookout at the thick clouds that hover over the mountain. weird couple months of extremities for vancity, first suffering from a drought and depleting reservoir, then floods, fallen trees and power outages from rainstorms and even snow on the mountain. is this the year the vancouver is due for a decent ski season??

day 728 – summer’s day

image

looking like a typical july summer’s day as i sit under the sun gazing out. this is the best time for tourists to come visit the west coast. glad to see the warm and sunny weather returning to vancity but i am not physically able to enjoy the outdoor activities. i am hoping and expecting to return to my regular activities soon and is eagerly awaiting the clearance to resume all that planned

day 638 – below grade

image

i understand it’s going to be a gigantic building on this site, but i still can’t get over how deep this hole is. as nerdy as it sounds, i find it interesting just to stand and watch the machines dig and maneuver. the digging has been constantly ongoing for many months, i wonder how long deep they will go before foundations start to happen. the jackknife and digging has become background music day in day out

day 629 – big ship

image

wondering what this grand princess cruise ship is doing at canada place since i heard they aren’t allowing cruises to depart from this dock anymore. it’s so much more massive than the zuiderdam i was on when i cruised to alaska. seeing all the people wheeling suitcases around the dock makes me believe i need vacation soon. it’s been way too long since my last one i am super exhausted without the work life balance

day 594 – cherry blossoms

image

happy st patrick’s day everyone!! all signs point towards the arrival of spring season when i look up at the sky of pink filled with cherry blossoms. what a lovely sight walking down rows and rows of pink cherry blossoms on a clear sunny day. too bad these flowers are such short lived and soon they will fall to the ground and make a mess. today calls for spending some time walking around downtown and taking in fresh air

day 579 – on my walk

image

the view of my walk towards the parking lot on my way home while light was still out this very monday evening. since i wasn’t in a rush today, which is rather rare, i slowed down to notice more of the environment in the prominent side of west hastings. never did i bother noticing the different signages above on the lamp posts that helps distinguish different sectors

day 547 – mild winter weather

image

gorgeous weather in late january with very mild temperatures this winter season which could be both good and bad. sunshine calls for nice stroll out although it can get a little too breezy along the seawall. but also because weather has been mild, it hasn’t allowed me to hit the slopes for skiing yet. i will take it as long as it’s not wet and rainy like what vancouver is notorious for
