We’ve walked about 20 kms every day since Friday. We didn’t really ‘mean’ to it’s just what happens when you live in a great city, with so much to do and you don’t own a car. Our treks to the beach, venturing through forest trails, are amazing although hot and burn-y for my back (ouch). Another venture toward Chinatown today turned into an all out cross-city march when we decided to just ‘keep walking’ and go all the way up to Commercial drive.

With slurpees to refuel us, we made the journey back via Chinatown- steamed buns in hand. I had never spent so much time in that part of town and never even been to the Sun Yat Sen Gardens. We came across a lot today that was intriguing and exciting – although all we were doing was walking around town.

Tomorrow is the Fourth of July and I’m kind of sad that I don’t get to experience it with my husband back in his hometown – watching the parade and hanging out with family. I find solace in the fact that he was able to enjoy his first July 1st/Canada Day here with me and that we’ll be doing a LOT of traveling next year. Also, it’s Baby Cam’s 2nd birthday – so that’s another thing (even more important to this Auntie anyway) to celebrate.
