Before take-off a quiet garden.

We had great quarters on W 15th!

Monday we strolled down Blenheim to the sea and the walked along the shore to Granville Island.

View toward How Sound and two panoramas, curtesy iPad.

The morning before departure we wiled away on the UBC grounds. Next to the Nitobe garden is the Asian studies centre, an interesting architecture amidst tall conifers and some exotic smaller items.

Nitobe Garden itself is a soothingly quiet place (ignoring the odd car somewhere beyond a wall). There oughta be such islands at airports …geodesic dome, botanical garden, …forget your flight 🙂
