COVID-19 may have put the crimp on many of our out-of-country travel plans this summer – but it didn’t stop us from exploring – albeit of a more local flavour. We swam in lakes, kayaked on rivers, biked back roads and watched sunsets from the comfort of our back deck.
Some people, like Rebecca Frost, who works in the Bishop Mountain Hall cafeteria, weren’t able to travel at all. “I spent my summer painting. If you can’t go there, you can always paint a picture of it,” writes Frost. “This is my painting of Ambleside Beach in West Vancouver [right]. The original photo that I worked from was taken by Paul Warburton who gave me permission to do a painting of it. It’s a driftwood view of the beach.”
The Reporter’s annual vacation gallery (below) is proof that you don’t always need to travel far and wide to find fun and adventure.
We received submissions from students, staff, faculty and administrators, who provided the captions. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to include all the photos (some were too small and vertical pictures don’t work for our photo gallery).
Thank you to everyone who participated!
