quirky food

not sure what it is, or even if they do know what it is,
it’s been cooked or presented in a way that’s unfamiliar to them.

Perhaps Black Forest Cake, is not really a quirky food,

however, I had no idea that it would be filled

with layers of cream.

 

The first time someone told us about Beaver Tails

I imagined lots of beavers minus a big fat tail.

It wasn’t until we were up on Grouse Mountain

that I noticed the lack of tail less beavers.

Signage was still advertising Beaver Tails

for consumption though.

It reminded me of a week or so earlier,

after a 14 hour flight from Brisbane we were

directed ‘…go past Tim Hortons…’

in the Vancouver airport.

At least I could envision a Beaver Tail…but

a Tim Horton had me stumped.

One was a tasty pastry while the

other served good coffee.

mermaid

a mythical sea creature with the head and trunk of
a woman and the tail of a fish, conventionally depicted
as beautiful and with long flowing golden hair.

Initially, I thought that this swimmer looked a little

like a mermaid struggling in the wild surf of the day.

Zooming in, however, it appears that again I was incorrect…

 

…as I was when I first viewed this statue

of a girl in a wetsuit from

Vancouver’s,

Stanley Park.
