A Perfect Day -- Out and about with the Thursday Walking Group

Today Vancouver outdid itself with a glorious September day and as my Thursday Walking Group took in the West Vancouver walk we kept saying to each other, "What a perfect day it is."

Looking across a sandy beach with its obligatory logs in place towards the north shore
I told you, a perfect day

Surf's up. Well that's as good as it gets here in the harbour.

The late season brings into bloom these stunning rudebeckia daisies called Goldsturm, Perennial Plant of the Year in 1999. They are almost a cliche as we all have them in
our gardens and in this little park beside the walkway they make a cheerful display

Our walk is done, ten past twelve, time for lunch, according to the floral clock

I downloaded fifty photos today from this walk today but I don't think you want to see them all. I'm sure I take the same photos over and over again.

Delightful photos. You must love these walks JMB - it's such a beautiful city especially when the sun shines.

I does look perfect, we could do with some of that sunshine here!

I'm afraid it's pouring down with rain here in the UK, so no chance of a walk, more's the shame.

Liz said...

Oh, and I'll be there soon! I'm so excited!!
