Beach walks before breakfast


Still keeping Greenwich Meantime to some extent, I'm up with the early dawn on the Vancouver campus. Before diving into the library I took a walk down to the beach this morning.
Ahhh. Now I begin to get why Vancouver tops charts as the world's best quality of life in a city. The path down was through a Pacific mixed growth forest of dappled light, tall trees and ancient ferns. Then to the pebbled shore, looking out over the strait to the snow-capped peaks beyond, the occasional seaplane just a dot against a huge sky, a heron flapping its steady way along the shoreline.
On arrival I learned that the library is closed on Monday, for Victoria Day. Oh well. I guess I'll just have to make do striding into different panoramas.
