Summer is pretty much here.
VanDusen Botanical Gardens
I have a seasons pass at VanDusen Gardens so
problem for me to drop by. In Spring we the gardens have a number
of shows and it's easy to drop in for the show but forget the
garden. I decided to spend a few hours one evening and go for a
bit of a walk around.
VanDusen has a lot of flowers, but I really like the local
flowers. While I'm a bit of species geek, I'm not generally keen
on recording plants found in botanical gardens (or animals in
Besides the flowers, the gardens have some nice structures - buildings,
pools and ponds. I didn't see any big wildlife (besides the usual
crows and mallards), but I did have an enjoyable walk.
Chinatown Night Market
It's my sisters birthday (in a few days) and my Mom
was over for a school event so we had a dinner at my house. After
letting dinner settle we decided that my TV free house is boring and
decided to go out and see the Chinatown night Market.
This market is a shadow of the Richmond night Market, but parking is
really easy and it's really close so it was a fun time!
