I can’t believe it’s the end of September. I also can’t believe I’m so late with this post. Enough said! These are my photos of the week!


This scene of Autumn courtesy of Whistler, Canada during a previous year’s visit on a beautiful October’s day!

This Red Admiral butterfly was constantly moving and it was difficult to get a good photo. Taken recently near the Rose Garden of Stanley Park in Vancouver.

It took me a while to figure out these mountains (thanks Google Earth for help) 😄

As always, I’m going through earlier photos and don’t think I’ve posted any from this visit to the Stanley Park gardens this past Spring. I love the tulips in the sky! Taken outside the Stanley Park Pavilion.

About Randall St. Germain

Randall St. Germain, author of Camino de Santiago In 20 Days, is a middle-aged Canadian Boy who is passionate about nature, photography, hiking, music, and self-improvement. After the death of his mother, he chose to walk the famous pilgrimage, the Camino de Santiago, across the north of Spain, despite knowing little about it. He certainly didn’t plan to write a book until the latter days of his Camino. Similar to walking the Camino, writing and publishing a book was a learning experience. It was also very rewarding, and part of his ongoing journey. Please join him as he takes you along on his journey in Camino de Santiago In 20 Days, and on his blog Camino My Way.
