I started my rainy day with a trip to the BC Museum. There was an exhibition of Viking artifacts and history so I spent a few hours in there, reading and looking and watching videos. It was entertaining and educational. Then I went on into the First Nations section where they have a room full of totems -- see above. In the background you can see the façade of a long house. The next image shows the scale in the next room -- I'm on the right. A German tourist who was also taking photographs did me the favour of taking this one.

And below is one of the many displays of First Nations culture.

By the time I had had lunch at the Museum Café and bought a few souvenirs at the Museum Shop, I was ready for something else. I walked back to Beacon Hill Park where I had parked for free, and looked at the flowers and ducks. It seems the ducks were doing synchronised swimming.
