This is not what the weather is supposed to be like in Vancouver in February! Okay, my friend Jacqui warned me that there was going to be more snow and more cold this month, but I looked at the cherry blossoms and daffodil buds and thought to myself, "Don't think so!" She was right! It is freeeeezing outside and even a bit cold inside (we live in an old building) and I want to do nothing but watch movies and drink coffee this weekend.
But, for Lola's sake and my own sanity, this morning we went on a long dog walk with my friend Emily and her dog, Hazel. We mostly stuck to the forest where the big trees kept us sheltered from the wind and snow. Hardly anyone was on the trails, we ran into just a few joggers. I suppose everyone is hiding under blankets at home waiting for Hockey Night in Canada to start. Our walk ended by the ocean, so grey and epic and beautiful. We found this strange shrine at the end of our walk. We've been finding weird things on the beaches of Vancouver together these past couple of weeks. Here are some photos for you so that if you live in Vancouver you know what it looks like out there but you won't actually have to go out yourself. Isn't Hazel adorable? I like her attitude about life: happy and excited! Stay warm!
