The New Year started off with a dump of snow in Vancouver and that would be the theme for much of January. The atmospheric stream that brought much-needed precipitation to California continued to travel up the West Coast and brought us more than we needed. Coupled with the politics in the United States, it was a stormy month indeed. Despite the title of this post, you can find a little brightness here. This is a selection of my photos posted to social media in January.

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.

Well, I would like to blame the beautiful Summer weather for the lateness of this post but to be honest, there were many gray and rainy days in Vancouver during early July. Like most months of Summer, July just breezed by, and we are now facing August. I won’t make excuses for my tardiness, but will just present you with a selection of my photos and videos posted to social media during June.

 

The rose arbor was just beautiful when I visited the Centennial Rose Garden on Burnaby Mountain in Burnaby, Canada on a sunny Sunday in June.

If you’re in the Vancouver, Canada area during the Christmas season, I recommend visiting Festival of Lights at VanDusen Botanical Garden. It’s quite beautiful with over one million lights and the display seems to get better every year. Try to go on a night without rain but expect large crowds as Festival of Lights is very popular. I didn’t take any photos but posted videos to Instagram that I have included here. Now, please join me on my photos and videos posted to social media in the past week.

 

 

I shared this on a stormy day in Vancouver… No photos of dark clouds and me being pelted by rain, but a look back to late Spring…
and some brightness. I visited this pink rose during one of my many walks in Vancouver.

This weekly post of my photos shared to social media will be out of character. Sure, there are photos of flowers, critters, sunsets, and mountains, but at the end I have included three spooky Halloween videos from my Instagram page. If you don’t want to see them, just stop after the cute birds. Now, please join me on my photos and videos posted to social media this past week!

This tulip may appear to be all cream, but if you look closely, there are spots and streaks of pink. It really is quite pretty. Taken last Spring, somewhere in Vancouver, Canada.

My website was hacked this past week and it was not a good feeling. I apologize to those of you who tried to access Camino My Way while it was down. To the person from Moscow, Russia who hacked my website, please take your talents and do some good in this World. Now, let’s move on and please join me on my photos of the week posted to social media.

 

I visited these tulips at VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver many times this past Spring. Loved the bright colours!

My highlight for the week was not a walk or a hike, but attending the Jason Aldean, Cole Swindell, and Tyler Farr concert in Vancouver, and sitting close to the stage. I took some cool video but better not post any here so there are no copyright issues. Instead, please enjoy my photos posted to social media in the past week.

 

Hello pinkish dahlia… 😄
not sure what kind you are but I wish I knew. Taken recently in someone’s front yard in Vancouver, Canada.
