溫哥華的無遊之旅 Non-Traveling In Vancouver

來了溫哥華卻那裡都沒去…
I wonder whether there is an antonym for “virtual travel”as I have been physically in this city but not visited anywhere except for the 1km radius of dining and grocery shopping. Maybe this is another sign of my progress of “doing nothing”.

終於今天下午在住處附近走走。

先去號稱是這裏唯一的天體營海灘,走了幾百階梯穿過林子下去,不過一個全裸的也沒看到。沙灘上倒是躺著很多赤裸裸的木頭,頗悽涼。
Finally I took a small walk this afternoon. First to the Wreck Beach which is literally on the other side of the road from where I live. Not a single person was enjoying their “all clothes off” time except for the naked logs lying around.

然後去了植物園,忘了把小紅(P500)帶出來,於是只能拿著佳能卡片機亂照。照片一般,不過在森林裡走走還是很好,很容易就把一下午給耗掉。
Then to the Botanic Garden within UBC and gardens never fail you. Indeed a very pleasant walk, not to mention that I brought a big burger with me.

看到這小粉細花時,突然很想去潛水看珊瑚~~
These tiny pinky flowers suddenly triggered my longing for diving. Guess they made me think of coral somehow.

這一周印象最深的是,某天對著這棵大樹吃中飯。

真的很喜歡樹,根基穩固,向上又自在任意伸展。希望自己也有這樣的特質。

Always love trees. They root deep while growing freely, unconfinedly upward…Some qualities I wish to have one day.

溫哥華的爵士音樂節沒有去看,卻莫名其妙的看了印度舞和柬埔寨民樂的演出。真的是什麼事都可能發生。誰說天下沒有新鮮事啊?沒有一天的經驗是能完全事先預想到的!
I will miss the Vancouver Jazz Festival as going to leave tomorrow. Yet ran into Indian dance and Cambodian folklore music/dance performance in Vancouver. Anything can happen!
