From the Miss604 Flickr Pool

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Walking home from the beach the other day I was stopped in my tracks by something large, orange, and dry on the path in front of me. Looking up from the ground, the fallen maple leaf was soon joined by a smaller counterpart that not quite completed its change from green to yellow. It floated down to the mulch-covered path and I crossed over each in my flip flops, knowing I wouldn’t be able to wear them for much longer.

Autumn in the Park
Don’t fret, this image of mine is from November

The Rules of Vancouver clearly state that when it rains, you don’t complain about it being wet. And, when the sun shines, you don’t complain about the heat. However I have to admit, fall is my favourite season. While I’m sad to see the beach days dwindle and outdoor festivities pack up, I’m just as excited for scarves, cool walks through the park with hot drinks, and the turkey-filled holidays we get to spend with family.

The fall equinox won’t be upon us until September 23rd so for the next 3 weeks there’s still for summer sun to shine on the West Coast.

This week’s collection from the Miss604 Flickr Poolonce again highlights the good times we’ve seen throughout August in Vancouver.

    Rebecca, do you allow for non-Vancouver area photos, bit still within BC? Just curious as I refrain from posting things outside of the 604 area for some reason. If yes, then I’ll be sure to add more of my photos to the group!

    Btw, love the little changes to the site (just going though the last 23 posts as I am a bit behind in my RSS feeds).
