Women's World Cup Soccer began setting up trailers along Vancouver's False Creek long before the tournament began.
Here's a look back from further along the creek, showing BC Stadium, where the games take place.
The same day, we continued into the Strathcona area of Vancouver, where we enjoyed a walk filled with all kinds of fences. Some were in front of red blooms,
others behind white blooms, and still others had a variety of..
geometrically complicated structures..
that sometimes opposed and sometimes supported each other.
One fence had an important message,
and behind the message was a dog looking longingly over a veranda, perhaps missing Tuxedo and hoping we kept an eye out for him. (We did, but no luck.)
Many of the fences..
and properties were very old,
but even when they were in disrepair, I found each one charming.
Bill was fascinated that many of the properties extended below street level.
There certainly was sufficient variety of material..
and shape to keep us fascinated.
We even found free stuff, though we weren't in need of more "things" at the time.
Downtown fences, seen a day later, were fascinating in a different way.
I love to peer through..
and over fences with Bill,
and to admire with him the coordination and organization required to build..
humungous new structures..
that sit in the deepest holes in the ground either of us have ever seen.
Watching Bill look through fences is one of my great pleasures :)
I liked the shadows and lines of this fence. It surrounds the swimming pool at Stanley Park.
A few Blue Heron shots, this one behind a little dock fence,
just to show you that I haven't forgotten birds. Can you spot this heron beside the Stanley Park Seawall?
It flew slowly past the wall.
A few more shadow shots..
conclude the post. Many thanks for stopping by. Thanks again, Theresa (aka TexWisGirl)!
