This week, Amy encourages us to “Keep Walking” and share photos of our walks. With pleasure, Amy! I’m a big fan of walking for fitness and pleasure.
One of our favorite walking cities is Vancouver, an exquisite city in Western Canada with a population of 2.5 million and miles of shoreline. It’s no surprise that we’ve fallen in love with this city with its stunning architecture and natural beauty.
On our walks, we often take the seaside path that extends from one end of downtown Vancouver to the other. Today, we’ll start at David Lam Park, where the path passes by luxury high rise apartments with great views of the bay.
We’ll keep walking and soon we’ll approach English Bay and Second Beach.
Here we’ll see people sunbathing, swimming, running, biking, and walking dogs. Kids always keep busy by digging in the sand and climbing on the rocks.
We’ll also get to see some striking sculptures like Inukshuk, a symbol from the Inuit people in northern Canada.
If we keep walking, we’ll enter Stanley Park where people play golf, wander through gardens, sit by the lake, or play bowls–like these men on the green one foggy morning.
We’ll end our walk at the Vancouver Convention Center at sunset. I’m tired, aren’t you? We’ve walked over 10 kilometers–which gives you a good idea of how long the path is. Right now, it’s time to sit down and enjoy a great meal, don’t you think?
That was fun, Amy! Many thanks for this week’s inspiration. We hope you join us and share your favorite walks from all around the world. Thanks also to Tina for her “It’s All About the Light” challenge last week. Your photos were glorious and showed us the power and drama of natural light. Thanks for sharing the light with us!
Looking ahead to next week, we’re delighted to announce that Sofia Alvez of Photographias will be leading the challenge, so be sure to stop by her site on Saturday, September 4th at noon. Her theme will be “Looking Up/Down.”
In the meantime, have a joyful and inspiring week, and please stay safe.
