Sunday, June 8: What I saw on my run today

A lovely day for a “long” run.  Long today being 14K.  With a few hills and nice breeze along the way.  Here is a log of my journey, taken during walking breaks.

First, the path I run on is supposed to be for walkers/runners only.  Now, I don’t normally see any skateboarders or in-line skaters, but I do see bicycles once and awhile, and usually they are NOT wearing helmets.


Now, every so often along the way, I will see metre markers.  I am not sure where they start or end, but here is one:


Here is some scenery along the way…

Lots of driftwood everywhere.


The street I run on, and it is one very long street, changes names several times.  When I start, it’s Dallas Road, then it becomes Hollywood Crescent, and then King George Terrace, and eventually Beach Drive.  People are supposed to drive slowly (as per the 30K sign) because it’s very windy, but I find locals are usually driving faster, and tourists slower.  I am always amazed there aren’t more accidents!


Bus Stop – we have no-idle laws (well I don’t know really if they are laws, and I don’t know if they apply across the city) of sorts here…but the bus is certainly not supposed to idle here next to this park…

Here comes the hill, and on my way up, I paused to take a picture of a trail I need to explore sometime….

I just like these grasses, and this is also where the road is King George Terrace…

I LOVE this!  I need to run up the hill with a couple of books to donate to this wonderful little road-side library!


More scenery…

And, back up the hill…


Oh, and this is what Victoria looks like in the summer. If you’re looking for green grass, come back in February!


Heading back…


The wind was good today – this first guy was right over my head!

A sailboat coming around the bend…


And finally, ending with a walk past some pretty roses…


And thus ends the long run for today – another beautiful run with scenery I NEVER get tired of!
