I hiked through tall cedar and douglas fir along this Belcarra trail during the early days after my move to Canada. Over the years, I forgot about the trail in favour of other walks but last summer, I returned delighted again that not many people were on the route.
On a secluded nook, stood one mysterious house. Tiny crabs and mauve star fish were a common find on the rocky, sometimes sandy or muddy inlets. But the real gem was the view at Admiralty Point that sat across from Burnaby.
We walked on one of those perfect west coast days where the sun danced on the sea. I stood on a stony beach wanting to capture its essence but the glare was too strong for me to see what I was photographing. I had to guess and check till I preserved the memory I was after.
