I've posted previously about our tradition of going for a Sunday afternoon walk or drive. Since today was sunny, we opted for a late afternoon walk.
Pete's proposals for destinations usually involve a natural setting, such as Mount Seymour or Ambleside. My suggestions almost always involve cityscapes. I love neighbourhoods, houses, gardens, sidewalks, sheds and back alleys. Today I won.
We headed to Vancouver's Hastings-Sunrise area, south of McGill and east of Nanaimo. There are some lovely residential streets in there, lined with massive trees. Saskia and Leif brought bags to fill with chestnuts, damp leaves and acorns. As they gathered their treasures, I had my own gems to admire: rows of circa 1910 heritage homes.
