Nitobe Memorial Garden
Nitobe Garden just opened a few minutes after we arrived and since we had not been there for a long time, we decided to venture in.

The first exhibit right off the bat from the entrance gate is a Japanese-style house.
There seems to be a strong relationship between UBC and the westcoast Japanese-Canadians.
Alas, we couldn't explore the house any further.
Maybe there's nothing inside?
This small waterfall lead to a big fish pond nearby.
There were stepping stones to go across the shallow stream.
The stream passes under a small bridge ahead, near the bigger Japanese stone pagoda.
The weather continue to improve, creating a stunning view.

|Back in the days...|
We came to UBC at the right time, we saw plenty of cherry blossoms.
|More Cherry Blossoms|
|... and more|
Suddenly, we had to leave UBC since our tummies were grumbling and the little one seemed a little bit antsy, signalling mommy to eat lunch ASAP.

Last week we had Mexican for lunch. This week, due to the proximity and the urgency, we opted for another Mexican at our regular Mexican restaurant: Las Margaritas.

As always, Las Margaritas delivered and we're pleased. Once the bill had been paid, we went home and spent the rest of the day to rest.
