On Thursday night, I spent my whole evening sitting on my couch, staring wistfully at the photos on my screen of a carefree Jana climbing mountains and jumping into lakes. I injured my tibia on Tuesday evening, which has me in an air cast until at least next week until I can get finalized bone scan results. I had plans for the weekend to take a roadtrip out to Tofino and spend a few days camping on the beach, hiking up to abandoned planes, attempting to surf and enjoying the outdoors. Instead, I was immobile and miserable.
So tonight I decided to do something about it.
Sam and I parked at Stanley Park’s Prospect Point and trekked out to the Lions Gate Bridge to gently hobble across it and catch the sunset, and it was absolutely breathtaking.
We did also drive out to Whytecliff Park in West Vancouver (a beautiful place to swim in the daytime) to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower. We lay directly on the rocks right next to the waves and caught sight of six beautiful shooting stars. I couldn’t get any photos, as it was pitch black, but the moment was wonderful in itself.
