Shortly after I came out to British Columbia in early 2006 I had a case of severely high blood pressure. It wouldn't have been fair to an employer for me to work for them until I got my health situation sorted out. I was on medications to lower the blood pressure and it took until early 2007 to find the cause. I finally went to a naturopath who found that a microscopic parasite was the cause for all this.

While getting my health in order, I took up blogging to share my photography. This way I wasn't wasting time and others got to enjoy the photos, not just me and those close to me.

In May of this year I had a mini-stroke cause again by severely high blood pressure. I may end up gong to the naturopath again since the specialist and other MDs can't seem to find the cause. This has only been a problem out here. Before that in Ontario, the blood pressure was only marginally high, not severely high like in BC.

Knowledge is good because being forewarned is forearmed!

All that said, enjoy this blog and all the photos I share with you.

Scenes along the seawall at Vancouver's Stanley Park

There are lots of ships and other watercraft to see while walking along the seawall at Vancouver's Stanley Park but there are other things of interest as well such as a crow pecking amongst the seaweed washed up on the sand, people gathered on a beach like English Bay's 3rd Beach or ferns and other plants growing on a cliff face along the seawall. Then on a warm, sunny day there will be lots of other people doing the same thing: biking, running, walking or skateboarding! So if you ever get the chance, take advantage and enjoy!!! - Volker
