Beacon Hill Park

Beacon Hill Park was one of Emily Carr’s favorite places. Set aside and developed as a park in the 1860’s, it is a remarkable place to ramble and paint. Trees, ponds, birds, flowers, and the ocean compete for your attention. It’s easy to see what she saw there.

Then we return to our condo for dinner and sunset.



About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    All of this seems lovely, I am just discovering a flurry of messages after a week in Isère. I was looking for Spring, I got Fall; I was looking for sun, I got rain. It was also time for European elections which turned out to be extremely depressing once the results became known.

    Beautiful country, Paul. There are places here that remind me of it.
