Ladies, gentlemen and everyone, I give you the one, the only, the Oscar nominated, Epeira Diadema! (Epeira is the spider of course, don't mind the napping dog in the background)

You read it right, the common Cross Orbweaver was the star of a 1952 short film by Italian director Alberto Ancilotto - "Epeira Diadema" was nominated for an Oscar in 1953.

Believe it or not, she was also elected European Spider of the Year in 2010. #fact Spider Awards are a thing.

You have likely met her before, as she is one of the most well-known spiders in the world; in North America, she is seen everywhere, hanging upside down in the center of her web: from #Pennsylvania north throughout #NewEngland, throughout #Canada, and then south into #Washington, #Oregon and #California. .

In the #PNW autumns, she is said to be as common as clouds... Well, the next time you will see her, you will be aware that
... .
1- She is so #famous, the decorative spiders hung around for Halloween are modelled after the likes of her!

2- She got her nickname, Cross Orbweaver, from the pattern on her back; yet she will respond to many names, including Araneus diadematus/Diadem spider, European garden spider, Epeira Diademata, or #Gartenkreuzspinne .

3- Come the evening, she will eat her web to recycle it in the morning #RRR She was also seen eating her precious silks before a storm.

4- Her bite is merely unpleasant.

Yesterday on Saturna Island, we met with the Polar Prince, who left Toronto on June 1st, 2017, and sailed to the West Coast (#bestcoast) through the Northwest Passage. .
.
Her Majesty's 150 days epic journey as Canada C3, conducting research while connecting Canadians from coast to coast to coast, will end in Victoria, on Vancouver Island, on october 28th. We felt lucky to catch a glimpse of her as she was #islandhopping in the Gulf and made a stop on Saturna.

It was, in fact, more than a glimpse: as Jolie waited on the dock, collecting pets from everyone, C3 welcommed us on board. We heard about the ship, the trip, the pizzlis and the whales.

Yesterday ended up being a big day of coffee, Baileys and education - getting to walk in the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Legacy room and stand on the vessel's vintage deck were definately the highlights. #imthecaptainnow #feelingroyal .
.
Fun Trivia:
Before being awoken from retirement by the @canadac3 project, MV Polar Prince was a Canadian Coast Guard icebreaker and went by the name CCGS Sir Humphrey Gilbert. Who can tell where, on the boat, is the icebreaker? #trivia .

.

In fact, the boat IS the icebreaker. She is a very heavy ship,  and she wears all her 960 tons down low #deadweight. When she encounters ice, she slowly slides above it, and her sheer weight breaks it. #learnsomethingneweveryday

Jolie's favorite spot?
Right-here-in-your-face-at-all-times

So for this Monday Meeting we chose to go to our new favorite coffee shop in our new neighbourhood : Gene's!

Gene Coffee Bar is a very thin coffee shop, squished in between Main and Kingsway in Mount Pleasant. Gene allowed Jolie to come in and stand in her favorite spot - that is, out of the rain and at earscratch reach - while I read the news to her. The coffee is good, the (#organic) croissants are exceptional, and the walls are made of windows - perfect for rain-watching. #Raincouver #beautifulbcweather

Thank you #GeneCoffeeBar #thanksalatte

. "Anyone knows of other such outstanding establishments in Vancouver, please do share" - Jolie, while sipping her croissant crumbs. #cozy

Playing Dog-Kebab in our new favorite Lake. #vancouverlife
.

Trout Lake is the heart of our local park, John Hendry Park, and at the north end of the lake are 26,000 square meters for dogs off-leash #merriments.

What is now a very large dog pool and East Van's only beach used to be a natural peat bog lake fed by many streams and home to abundant salmon, beaver and.. trout, hence the name, I guess.

In June 1867 on the south shore of Burrard Inlet, Captain Edward Stamp (who once captained a Ship called Emeu #funfact) began Vancouver's first commercial operation: Stamp's sawmill, which soon became Hastings Mill. .

It was Trout Lake's waters that fed the mill's steam-driven machinery, and #Hastings Mill is said to be "the nucleus around which the city of Vancouver grew up in the 1880s" and remained important to the local economy until it closed in 1928. .

John Hendry became co-owner of the mill in 1889, and Hendry’s daughter married Eric W. Hamber, one of the previous Lt. Governor’s of British Columbia. In 1926, the Hambers donated part of their land at the Trout Lake site to the Vancouver Park Board under the condition that it be called “John Hendry Park”
.
.

Where are they now? 
The mill was dismantled in 1927. .

The mill office – an 1895 show home – was donated to the Anglican Church and turned into a Seafarers mission which it remains until this day; .

The building that housed the Hastings Mill Store was transported by barge to the foot of Alma Street to begin a new life as the Old Hastings Mill Store Museum; .

And Trout lake stayed here, on Victoria drive, one of the 8 off-leash parks in East Van. #UnleashedVancouver

The cool autumn wind
Paint brush through the fallen leaves
Scarlet and Crimson .
.
.
You've just been Haikued!
#haiku 
As one might suspect, my poem is a lie.
.

There is no wind nor paint brushes painting the leaves in red in the fall.
.
To turn red, certain deciduous trees actually alocate some of their scarce autumn energy to create the red pigment #anthocyanin out of sugars trapped in the leaves.

Without that pigment, the leaves would just show their natural yellow (xanthophylls) and orange (carotenoids) tints as the fragile, green chlorophyll breaks down.

Trolling salmon. #trolling .

Staring into the fog, the #fisherdog is also remembering Spanish explorer and Nootka Affair protagonist José María Narváez. .

Narváez led the first European exploration of El Gran Canal de Nuestra Señora del Rosario la Marinera, a name somewhat cumbersome that was replaced in 1792 by the to-the-point British name Georgia Strait (for King Georges III), and forms part of the Salish Sea. #yonosoyelmarinero #soyelcapitan

In July of 1791, as commander of the schooner Santa Saturnina, he was the first European to set foot on the Sunshine Coast by Chapman Creek, for which he prefered the singing name of Rio de la Aguada. That name didn't stick either. .

But he was obviously gifted when it came to naming places, and some of his creations do remain- like Lasqueti, the name he gave a small island our fishing expedition might or might not be facing. #fog #imatthewheel #sailingincircles #lost #whereisnortheast #noview .

In the Abyss she looked and looked, she searched for the very heart of Earth and found nothing, but dampness, darkness, cold.

This place in the South of Nanaimo is officially called Extension Ridge, but known as The Abyss among Vancouver Islanders.

Not much is known about it but that it is an undated earthquake fissure, at it's greatest half a meter wide, and deep. Just how deep, it is unsure, at least to the center of the earth, but possibly deeper. Maybe as deep as Sheol, the biblical underworld... "...and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed them up, and their houses and every man [...] went down alive to Sheol and the earth covered them..." #bibleverse
#biblicalcrack #biblicalhikes

Special note: there are also petroglyphs in the area, keep an eye out or both!

A chair in a garden. Toes in the grass. Brasilian music. On the broken china mosaic table top, a cup of hot, fresh coffee. 8:00 AM in Chase, BC. The Farmer's market opens in an hour and a half.

Inside Out is not your usual coffee shop: It's a morning haven, an oasis that welcomes you with open arms  after you found out that Chase Cafe is a pizza joint, not a coffee shop.

Happy Tuesday, International Photic Retinopathy day!

Indeed, there was a solar eclipse yesterday, as you might have heard, and today is the day the ones among us who looked at the eclipse with the naked eye (hello @joeybadazzx, @realdonaldtrump) or with improper protection, like sunglasses (hello @elonmusk) will start to feel the damage, if damage was done. #ifyoubelieveinit

Photic, or Solar, Retinopathy is damage to your retina from exposure to more radiation that it can handle. .

It is said that one should not directly stare at the sun any day (for fear that Ra would decide to spit on your eye, or worse), but it is particularly true during a solar eclipse. How so?

When it is bright outside, your pupils are constricted to limit the amount of light going through your beautiful, #natural crystalline lenses, so as to not overwhelm your retina. As the moon covers up the sun, it gets darker down here - and if you were in the USA yesterday, and the solar eclipse was total, it got the darkest. When it gets darker, your pupils relax and chill. .
So if you look at the sun at that moment, the light difference will be such that your retinas will get slammed before your brain even realises what hit them and squeezes your pupils again. .

A couple of seconds are sometimes enough to "burn" a sun crescent shape at the bottom of your eyes. You won't feel it, no pain receptors there. But a day later (today) you might see black spots, or everything blurry, or you can have a headache, or even experience such latin things as central or paracentral scotoma, chromotopsia, metamorphopsia and photophobia. #hangovertuesday
.

These #latin and non-latin symptoms can last for days, months, or ever...
.
I just thought it was interesting to know. Don't panic, Jolie is not looking at the sun on this photo - not litterally. She's just looking at me like: #pleasedontfall .

Swipe for the proper way to look at an #eclipse, like a #pinhole projector, or a live feed ;) .

Tart BC cherry, lemon and oats hiking muffins.

#hikingfoodie "How are they hiking muffins, they just look like regular muf..." WRONG. 
These are top shelf hiking muffins.

They contain no eggs nor dairy, so they can last for a long time - theorically. (This has never been proven, as they seem to always get eaten in one sitting.) .

They are made of buckwheat and oat flours with seeds, so they are filling.

They are mini muffins, perfect pocket-size portions. 
They are best served on old, lakeside pic-nic tabletops with cool dog-related graffitis.

If you can guess where said table is, or if you ask for it, I will give you the recipe. 
Clues: 
1 - It is in #BeautifulBC
2 - The lake beside the table bears a feline name
3 - Look up @mason_gunneson photo of the same graffiti
