winter afternoon


At the mouth of the Capilano River at Ambleside Park, West Vancouver, 4:00 pm

Today seemed to be the first day this year without rain, though I haven’t kept any notes on it. It’s been incredibly wet, normal winter weather here in coastal British Columbia, and we just wear our rain gear and carry on. But a mild (8C, 46F) dry day is a treat with the sun out ever so briefly. We head out; first for a bit of browsing of the January sales in some shops until we feel too warm and stuffy indoors, then for a long seaside walk. The sun peeks out again to greet us before it disappears into the clouds again. Home again, pleasantly tired.
