At peace by the water

The sun is shining down, providing necessary vitamin D to improve my mood. Listening to footsteps walking on the stones and sand. It all brings me back to my time in Chile where I felt free and peaceful. Watching the water sparkle in the sun is dazzling to the eyes, like diamonds.

There were lovely people walking and stopping to chat. It was lovely and quiet today walking on the beach.

I made it to my destination and needed some food so headed to The Boathouse. A bit disappointing for the price but the tacos were decent. The view was spectacular.

Necessary stop for ice cream on the boardwalk.

I ended my day with a walk down Canada’s longest pier and watching the sunset. A beautiful end to the day.

Fort Langley

I spent the afternoon in the lovely little town of Fort Langley enjoying the sunny day.

It was on a whim I came here and when I arrived, I was lucky to discover a spring bazaar happening. I took the time to wander through, and then kept on walking.

This place reminds me of Niagara on the Lake in Ontario. It’s a relaxed atmosphere and makes me want to just sit down and listen to the sounds I hear. Which of course I did.

I continued walking up to the Fraser River walkway and took in the beauty of the river walk.

Of course, hunger pains struck so I headed to Fort Pub and Grill for some fish and chips. Delicious food and such a diverse staff. Definitely recommend this place!

After dinner, I decided to work off my dinner and went for a hike at Brae Park, and went to Tavistock Point. The 4 km walk was definitely worth it for the views!

I finished off my day with a limoncello Gelato. It was a great day.

Walking paths

My favourite exercise is to walk. I have walked hundreds if not thousands of kilometers in my life. And I am not slowing down!

Today I walked from our favourite park down to the grocery store, about a 20 minute walk. It was down this lovely path and I took my time.

I could walk for hours as long as my feet feel okay. And it’s a great way to get some fresh air!

Victoria

After having a couple of really stressful weeks, I finally have a break. The apartment is quiet and I have several days off, so I decided to head to Victoria BC for two nights. Tonight is my first night here and I took a very long walk to clear my head and take in some sights.

My head is in a better place and I feel much better. Sometimes a short break and getting away helps.

Vancouver

We have had some serious weather the past few days, but today the sun came out and the day shone bright. I decided today was the day to head downtown Vancouver. It was a fantastic day and ended with going to the Christmas market. It can’t compare to the European markets but it was nice enough. Glad I made the decision to go.

As I walked around and took in the scenery, I did some serious thinking and made some decisions about my future. Sometimes all you need is some fresh air to clear your mind.
