Stanley Park is a huge forest in the middle of the city, the equivalent of Central Park in New York. This park juts out into the Pacific Ocean, surrounded on three sides by water. The North Shore mountains in the distance and the jewel of Downtown Vancouver gleaming in the evening sun, making this an absolute treasure to Vancouverites and the hoards of tourists that flock here each year!
The Stanley park lighthouse is one of my favorite local landmarks. It has also been featured on a blog template, some of you may recognize it. In this photo my youngest son David stands on a bench, shirtless and watches a cruise ship as it exits the harbour.
There was still alot of damaged trees apparent from the winter storms. This old stump was cause for some climbing adventure.
The boy in the purple shirt is our nephew, Kayla's brother. The boy in the blue tshirt is another nephew, Keith's sister's son. It's great that these cousins have eachother for support at a time of such worry for another one of their generation.
My prayers are with Kayla tonight as she prepares for her operation tommorrow.My thoughts are also on the rest of the family who care for this gal so dearly.
WE LOVE YOU KAYLA!
