This week’s hike with the Harbour City Newcomers was at Walley Creek Trail. It was a short but sweet walk, at first along a trail lined with aspen trees that were leaning in to reach for light. Then we enjoyed a surprise side-trek to an opening in the forest where trees had been harvested in […]
Roberts Memorial Provincial Park is in Yellow Point, British Columbia. It is a lovely short hike through ancient trees and abundant ferns to the coast where there is a view of Ruxton Island and Valdes Island. We also saw a sea lion and a loon that were happily ignoring each other and us.
Today I went with two newcomer friends to this wonderful park. It has the best of everything; beach, ocean waves, enormous old-growth trees, bright ferns, geese, ducks, and even a seal sighting. The trails are very accessible with wide flat paths and there are several lookout spots with information on the land, sea, and wildlife. […]
Hemer Provincial Park, near Cedar, British Columbia, is one of many delightful parks in this area. Today some friends from the newcomers group introduced me to the trails here, and we enjoyed a four kilometre walk among the trees.

This week, we are beginning to see some glorious fall colours. Right across the street from our house is the first tree in our street to turn yellow, and I was pleased to get a picture of it with the sun shining through the leaves. In the last few years, I have taken lots of […]
Here are some miscellaneous thoughts I had and pictures that I took today. They are not necessarily related to each other. Someone who knows about search engine optimization recently commented to say that when he typed in “SEO” to the WordPress search engine, my post about SEO was top of the list. I was at […]
When I am out and about I like to have my camera or my phone with me to capture moments of interest. Here are some photos I took in March. There is no theme to tie them together except for the month, the city of San Jose, and me.
Since I suffered a bad fall last spring, I have been trying to gradually get back to my former walking strength. I’m not there yet, but I’m making good progress. I am up to about two miles (3.2 km) now before I need a rest. This week my walks took me to Borden Park in […]
