Hoyt Arboretum Walk

We knew it had a possibility of being a wet day so we decide to stay closer to home this time. We decide to do a walk around Hoyt Arboretum and Washington Park a place we had not ramble through in quit a while. Lori knew of a place we could park for free so we would not have to dash back to feed the meter. Once we got our raincoats on we were off.

We had wondered if there would be any Fall color and right off we found out there would be. We first head through the rose garden and then took the Mac trail up from the Elephant House to Hoyt Arboretum. It was great fun to be back on trails that I had done for fifteen years with the rambles. Only this time we were not doing it in the dark and we could stop and enjoy the beauty. After several hours of walking we were ready for lunch and headed off to Goose Hollow Inn that claims to make the best Rueben Sandwich in the world. Once again a fun outing.

Vancouver Waterfront Walk

I needed to get out for a little exercise before a rain front was to arrive and I had not visited the Vancouver Waterfront in several months so that was the place to go. I have walked this area a number of times over several years now and it has been interesting to see that changes that have occurred. The Vancouver Waterfront Park area has gone through quit a transition and this time I found several new buildings under construction. My route was just over 6 miles and it took me a little over two hours to do.
