Who does this? It is wonderful to walk in this place and come upon a gentle interaction between people and the natural world. Living in this large city often the collision between people and nature can be hard on the heart. I wonder if the Lower Mainland inspires this because our surroundings are so gorgeous, or maybe this happens everywhere and I have only begun to see it. I hope that is the case.
This is the Fraser River, which is definitely a working river. So – the question is, how did that object get there, what function did these logs fill? (I am not knowledgeable about this sort of thing). Look carefully and you see the small fern attached and surviving up high.
OK, and then out to Steveston on the bike, just off for a ride, and to walk near the water yet again. (Something very good about walking near water, and something very good about lying on the grass and looking up at the trees.)
I went for coffee this morning, as I often do. There is an arrangement amongst a bunch of us. No pressure to appear, just a time and a place and sometimes there are a few of us, sometimes just one, sometimes none of us can make it. It is a great way to have an ongoing event, as there is no pressure and we meet because we want to and really like one another. I wore this today because I was fishing for compliments. It is the Holden Shawlette, a free ravelry pattern and it is light and drapey and feels great on the neck. Ok for grey days and for wearing in the cool. My good friends did not disappoint me, and made a suitable fuss about it’s prettiness, which is a great way to start a Sunday.
