On Sunday we went to check out McDonald Park which is not far from us but where we seldom go. Don't know why not because walking there is great and we literally met not another soul as we walked. This park is British Columbia's only designated dark sky park and is officially free of light pollution for clear-sighted gazing at the stars and this coming week will have many coming to watch the Perseid Meteorite Showers which are predicted to be super this year. I believe Wednesday to Friday nights are to be the best and we can only hope for a cloudless sky.
There were cars in the parking area but they might have been down by the water fishing.
I don't know what these wild flowers are. Maybe Queen Anne's Lace? The seed heads are very strange, I thought. Big and bushy. My wild flower ID book is no help because they don't show the seed head. I'll bet Karen will know what these are.
Has your week gotten off to a good start? Do you enjoy watching the sky? I've been known to sit out on the swing in the middle of the night just to see their beauty. Was it Anne Sullivan who said that if the stars were only visible once a year we'd be a lot more impressed by them?
