Rainy December Day in Beacon Hill Park

Today we walked from our condo on Victoria’s harbor to Beacon Hill Park through intermittent rainfall. The route goes through the James Bay neighborhood, an area filled with lovely Victorian homes and some marvelously designed new ones. However, the real gem is the park itself. We never tire of visiting Emily Carr’s home park. She loved the trees and so do we. It’s an ever changing view of birds, squirrels, deer, trees, ponds, and people.

For those who like to keep track of such things: Jean says we did over 8000 steps today! Paul says we played music for over an hour today as well! We each have our priorities.


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.

    Paris is as grey and as wet but certainly not as calm as the park in which you strolled. Thank you your soothing images. And have a great time!

    Hi Paul. Sadly the weather on this period is not in our favour. But I am very glad I had the opportunity to read your article and to know that there are people who love simple walks through nature even on rain, to take fantastic photographs and to share with others. Thank you for that!
