A nice saturday morning where I wake up at a decent hour. Thank you, time zones. I decided to take a morning walk before it started raining. Just had my phone with me. It astounds me how happy Nanaimo makes me, given that I wasn’t at all thrilled with it when I lived here. I think a big part of it is the fact that I know when I’ll be leaving.
It allows me to walk around the waterfront and actually take the time to appreciate it, which I never did while living here. I looked at monuments, mountains, and like, seven billion seagulls all making a huge fuss over something in the water. It was super nice and relaxing. All in all I recommend doing that if you’re in Nanaimo, instead of working at a call center, running credit checks on people for T-Mobile.
In an effort to try and find keep things simple now and then (preferably with a bit more frequency), I ended up trying to find something to encompass the concept of pattern today. During my walk by the waterfront I was strolling down one of the Nanaimo piers, and in one section instead of concrete or wood, it had a very interesting grate-like texture with the footing coated with what almost looked like salt. I liked how it looked and decided “This will do”.
