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.

Buntzen Lake

After a few weeks delay, I finally made it up to Buntzen Lake to the north of Port Moody on Saturday. I ended up hiking up the 6 km to the lake from Port Moody after taking a series of buses and the train from home. The weather was excellent for a hike. It was sunny with some cloud but certainly warm and pleasant for a hike! I'll have more photos of the trip plus commentary once they've all been edited. Meantime, enjoy this one of the lake! - V
