|I found a rather intruguing man-made rock wall near a tree. It actually looked like it was a fort, or an empty rock-pool.|
|I found "Rainbow Roses" at Granville Island|
|This seemed like the end of the road. The path went behind several very expensive Kitsilano homes and ended abruptly at this stony staircase at the beach. I stopped here to sit in the sun and ate the apple I picked up at Granville Island Market|
|On the way back home, I spotted this a group of people playing "Unicycle Hockey." They told me they were from the Vancouver Unicycle Club, and that they meet a few times a week under the Cambie Bridge.|
|They also offered to teach me!|
As an aside, I thought it was very lucky I bumped into these guys yesterday. I'd been thinking for a while that it would be fun to learn how to unicycle, and I had heard that they met up close to where I live but I never really investigated it. I did learn that the bike rental shops in town don't rent unicycles, so you really have to committ and buy one for realsies. There was a family there while I was - their children looked to be maybe 9 and 4 or 5, and both were learning to ride. I asked the 9 year old about it and he said "well, Biking's not really my thing. I like to play ice hockey a lot." I just thought it was totally rad that this whole family was learning to unicycle and it was just a family thing they do, but not that it was a passion for each of them.
The picture of me was taken around 630, I'd say. A while later, a mom commented to me "I'm really impressed. You're very determined - you've been at this an hour now, and most peoplegive up after 20 mins." I had no idea it'd been an hour! I left at dark.
