My long, snowy walk took me through Beacon Hill Park. I wandered along all the paths beside the ponds, until I began to feel the cold.
View of the Legislature Buildings on my way to the park.
Entering Beacon Hill Park from Douglas Street. The Garry Oak meadow is an outline of lacy texture against the snow sky.
View to the stone bridge. I love the subtle shades of green, yellow and blue amongst the grey and white.
Autumn leaves which never fell.
A small iron bridge over a tiny stream.
Walking back home to Chinatown in the snowy dusk light. The trees which line Government Street are now illuminated with red and pink lights for Valentine’s Day.
This park holds only a small portion of Bowker Creek, much of which is now covered by roadways.
Stumbled on this pretty little park in Oak Bay a couple weeks ago, full of birds and blossoms. More info here, here and here.
Ducks enjoying the creek.
Would be a great picnic spot, so quiet and peaceful!
Had a wonderful walk yesterday with our friend M. She lives very close to our beautiful city park. We walked all around the gardens admiring the plantings this year, saw some turtles and baby ducks, and ended our visit over delicious beverages at Heist Coffee Co. on Courtney Street.
