I drive the Sea to Sky from Vancouver to Squamish, or Whistler, or Pemberton several times a year.
Sometimes for camping, sometimes for photography.
Here’s a shot at Porteau Cove from earlier today.
The 1930-built sail training ship Nippon Maru permanently docked at Yokohama, Japan. Wow, can’t believe that a couple of months after our last Japan trip, I’m still catching up on photos to post!

While we were in Edinburgh, we walked trails near Arthur’s Seat several times, and rambled to the top on a fine, sunny day.
Trails began just minutes from our friend’s flat
