I’ve been going for a lot of walks lately, while the weather still holds up, and I’ve got to say, it’s been very pleasant. Autumn is a beautiful time, even if it is on a bit of the nippy side, and going for an Autumn walk in Vancouver is pretty hard to beat. Come and see for yourselves!
I’ve been spending a few hours each day walking to and through some of the green spaces nearby where I live. The closest parks to me are Trout Lake and Queen Elizabeth Park, so I’ve been exploring more of them.
Trout Lake I’m pretty familiar with, having spent many field trips there during elementary school to picnic in the summer and ice skate in the winter, but it’s been quite a while since I’ve spent any time in or around Queen E. Walking through Queen Elizabeth, I was shocked by how much there was to see. I wish I’d known how pretty it was going to be, otherwise I would have brought my actual camera instead of using my phone for pictures. You can’t see the vibrant fall colours quite as well, but believe me, they were incredible.
It’s been nice to get out of the house and take in some fresh air. Not to mention how accomplished I feel after spending two hours walking. Hey, it’s not much of a workout, but it’s something!
This has been a really stunning fall, so I’m sad to see that it’s on its way out. There’s a few Autumn-y branches still clinging in there, as evidenced by my strolls through the parks, but winter is definitely in the air.
While I have no doubt that winter will bring with it some fun times and beautiful sights, I must say, I’m going to miss this:
I’m looking forward to continuing my walking adventures and seeing what other gems I can discover. If it’s anything like what I’ve seen this week, I’m sure in for a treat. The rains are supposed to start to hit us hard soon, but hey, that’s what umbrellas are for. Maybe I’ll like walking in the rain just as much. We’ll have to see.
