Natural Beauty

In New York City one forgets what it is like to live close to nature. All you can eat sushi aside, the thing that made our Vancouver visit into a real vacation was the peace of mind I felt seeing the natural beauty that surrounded us. Doesn't it feel like you can just breathe better where there are forests, mountains, and ocean all around you? I have shared a few photos here.


Bright green moss growing on a forest rock. Tree trunks washed up on a stony shore. Ice shaped by the winds blowing over the mountains. A wooded path in Lighthouse Park. A drop of water clinging to a bush after the rain. Ash holding some pine cones I picked up on a walk. The cross- section of a tree trunk over 500 years old. Through the trees and across the water, a view of West Vancouver in the distance. Tall grasses growing along the sea wall.
