Visit to the Vancouver Aquarium and the Lost Lagoon

Having escaped the never-ending construction work at our building, we ended up at the Vancouver Aquarium where we – once again – visited Jack (who wasn’t much in a playing mode, unfortunately) and Daisy. The bunch of penguins were quite entertaining, too, with Hope trying to stand closest to the door (feeding time perhaps?). After going to see Schoona, Hana and Helen, Qila and Aurora, and of course Tanu and Elfin we had a walk along English Bay and then headed to the Lost Lagoon, one of our most favourite places in Vancouver – and it was partly frozen so that loads of ducks and two swans were gathering around or were even in the water hole.

Anyway, it was a lovely day – and when we were home we enjoyed a nice cuppa in a very quiet building as the construction workers had left for the day.

Winter is here

Well, actually, it will probably only last for a day or two, but that is definitely fine with me.

Anyway, it is probably not the best idea to have a nice little swim in the pool today, right?

Impressions of Cates Park and Sunset in Burnaby

I just wanted to add some more pictures to Marcus’s post about our walking tour around Cates Park earlier today which we enjoyed very much, especially as the sun was shining on an otherwise rather cold day.

On our walk we saw a squirrel sunbathing – the perfect opportunity to take a picture! Of course, we saw seagulls and ducks as well.

Back home we had a nice hot cuppa and enjoyed the sunset from our couch.
