We returned from the grandeur of Utah and Colorado this week (post to follow) just in time to enjoy the last few days of the Tulips of the Valley tulip festival in the beautiful Fraser Valley of British Columbia. Just in time also to meet this week’s Photo Challenge: Lines in which Cheri asks us to “share a photo with a composition dominated by lines — hard or soft, straight or curvy, vertical or horizontal, or made in nature…”.
Those of you who follow The Changing Palette may remember my post from last year The Flowers That Bloom in the Spring Tra La when we visited the Tulips of the Valley festival almost exactly a year ago. It was a glorious day once again this year and one that needs to be be shared as the Lines for Cheri could not have been more brilliant in every way. Enjoy.
After our walk along Spanish Banks last week we took the Admiralty Trail, one of our favourite pedestrian pathways through the Pacific Spirit Regional Park, and enjoyed the glorious October fall colours illuminated by the afternoon sunshine.
Whether you have two legs or four there is nothing pedestrian about this pedestrian pathway, as you walk, jog or cycle beside Spanish Banks and English Bay as we did yesterday, with the Vancouver skyline in the distance.
Could this be one of the most scenic pathways in the world?…
…but I’m a little biased of course.
Sea to Sky
Returning to Vancouver from Whistler today along the Sea to Sky Highway a brief pause at Porteau Cove Provincial Park once again reveals Super Natural British Columbia in all its glory and also shows why the highway is so perfectly named.
