    From Burnaby Mountain Park, you can see a bird's eye view of much of the Greater Vancouver area. There is much more to the park than can be shown in a circle video. Although it was only 4 degrees with a cold wind, it looked much as it does on a summer day except for the winter clothing. Some people had even brought blankets and were sitting on the ground.

    White Rock Pier in White Rock BC Canada
    This was intended to be a sunrise video of the White Rock pier but, instead, it is a foggy day with no sun visible. The White Rock pier is the longest pier in Canada. A lovely spot for an early morning walk, sun or no sun.
