This is my new playground, my front backyard. Out for a quick walk at sunset, I strolled along a beach exposed by very low tides. Right across from home is a lonely stone sculpture guarding the bay like a giant transformer watching out for aliens. (This Inuksuk standing by the water of English bay has inspired the 2010 Winter Olympic Games logo; it was given to the city for the 1986 World Expo and has since become a protected site.)
