Budhist Temple in Richmond

Walking Outside
The Budhist temple in Richmond has a restaurant (under the main temple area) that is Vegetarian and quite good.  Jin just got back from another trip to Europe and wanted to eat somewhere good - Helen and I were happy to join.

I've been to lots of Temples in Asia so this one didn't particularly stand out, but I could imagine with the right light you could do quite a bit with this location.

Gary Point Park
Crocuses Growing In The Field
Gary Point park is a little bit of scrubby land at the South West extreme of Richmond.  One of the major waterways up the Fraser drains here and Steveston is a short walk away.  It turns out is's a good place to see the most habituated of the bird species that live in Vancouver.
