Winter arrived.


Unusual for Vancouver, the snow was not immediately washed away or turned to slush by the rain.



And equally unusual, this large open area has not been used for making a snowman!



Very scenic, but there's seems to be something missing...



There is very definitely something missing...



The duck pond is mostly frozen over, but no, this isn't what is missing...



This is what's missing!



Sub-zero kayaking, how could it get more invigorating! And it beats being a sailboat up on the rocks!



This is #12 so far this year... It doesn't look like a junker, the bottom's been cleaned recently. I couldn't see whether the rocks had holed the hull.



Another close encounter with an aquatic mammal! After grabbing the ball, the dog came over to see what I was up to...



The nice white beach is still there!
