Another brisk autumn morning as I woke from my slumber in North Vancouver. Today I had another exploration packed day planned. I still had my bike, so my mission was to ride to Stanley park and see what everyone had been talking about. The aquarium, the views and of course the wildlife. Breakfast scoffed down and I was ready to go...
A short trip there through the sea bus and I was on my way, starting at the Wharf I made my way around the waters edge to Stanley park. There is truly so much beauty hidden in Vancouver. It wasn't long before I arrived in Stanley park and was met with luscious wilderness with winding trails. Trails for walking, hiking & biking, so much to do.
Riding is so peaceful, a brisk breeze flowing through your hair, the freshness of the air. I made my way through the park trail on the outskirts of the island, viewing all the distant wonders that Vancouver had to offer. Maybe it was just me, but the Lions Gate bridge I next discovered somewhat reminded me of the Golden Gate bridge.
It was a particularly gloomy day.
It is truly beautiful to experience something like this in the middle of a giant city. Something I've never viewed in my life. It just works. As I continued around the bend I was greeted by hundreds of rocks, of which people had balanced on top of each other. I had tried this myself several months ago back home in Australia where I had come across a stack below a waterfall. There is something calming about putting your concentration and determination into attempting to balance rocks. A sort of meditation.
