The Olympic Oval

My side of the room100_9623

We moved to a different room today (in the same house) because some other people who had booked previously were moving in. The room is considerably smaller, but we don’t need a lot of space. It’s well lit and we have our own little outside patio area. Very nice I like. There are no more baby spiders being hatched around my head.

The pretty outside of the Olympic OvalSo today, other than talking, watching videos of Lego Star Craft, doing things online and such, we went to the Richmond Olympic Oval!

It’s quite interesting. Now that the Olympics are over, they’ve turned it into a sort of very large gym. Unfortunately since we’re not members, we didn’t get to see much of the inside, but we saw from a distance the big room with courts and such. We also got to walk around the outside which has a sort of bog.

We also got to see these cuties 🙂

Cuties!I’m not sure what they are, but they’re Olympic and they’re cute 🙂

100_9610After a short tour of the Oval, we went to the Richmond Nature Park… or at least we tried… all the trails were closed due to the dryness and maybe-ability of fires. Sad, didn’t get to see the bogs.

We did get to see some funny squirrels though. There were about 5 squirrels (at least that I could see), squirreling around and eating from the bird food things. It’s quite an amazing spectacle, I didn’t realize that squirrels could stand completely horizontal. Two feet stuck to the pole and the other two used to eat or grab more food from the bird feeders. Oh silly animals.

For dinner we went to the Richmond Public Market. Dinner there was 1/3 the price of dinner yesterday and we even had leftovers 🙂 yum!
