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.

Admiralty Point Trail - some photos from August 28

On August 28, a Saturday, during the afternoon, I did a hike down the Admiralty Point Trail and thoroughly enjoyed it. Here are some photos taken along the way. The trail is within Belcarra Regional Park northwest of Port Moody. I'll let the images do all the talking for the most part.
Next you'll see a series of photos I took of a conifer tree growing on a nurse stump. What do you see? What do you think?
It was sunny and warm that day, the last weekend of August and just perfect for a hike.
Here are some huckleberry shrubs growing on a moss-covered log. I hope you've enjoyed the images. Come back for more soon in Part II. - V
