To us, a stroll in Stanley Park isn’t just for exploring or venturing down familiar paths. It’s a chance to unwind among the falling raindrops and breathe in the fresh evergreen air.

Taking the Bridle, Tatlow, Lake, and Cathedral trails, we wandered around for hours hoping that the stresses of the week would crumble away like the bark mulch under our feet.

We even came across the alligator that’s been around for a few years now.

I’ve been going on walks in Stanley Park my entire life and when John moved here in 2005, we created a bit of a tradition. Sometimes we bring friends along, but more often than not, it’s just the two of us on the path (occasionally with a camera).

I didn’t take many photos but I wanted to capture how green everything was. With the windstorm a few years ago toppling hundreds of trees, there’s been much more light shed on the forest floor allowing the underbrush to flourish. We may curse rainy days in Vancouver but it’s because of them our sunny days are so glorious.
