Our adventure's last lodging was the Carey Centre, a retreat house on the extensive University of British Columbia campus. Circled on the map are a few of the places on campus where we walked during our two-night stay at the Carey Centre (the yellow circle).
After arriving and checking-in we strolled the area to find a location for lunch, then continued our walk to visit the Museum of Anthropology, a repository of "world arts and cultures with a special emphasis on the First Nations peoples and other cultural communities of British Columbia, Canada."
Entering the great hall filled me with a sense of awe and a wave of spirituality. The wooden carvings framed by floor to ceiling windows against an outdoor backdrop conjured a place of calm, respect and contemplation. Throughout the museum are extensive galleries of physical and digital collections, a researcher's paradise!
Our day was filled was much walking and exploring, which necessitated some resting before heading off again for dinner on campus followed by more walking and exploring. We spent a bit of time scoping out the many soccer games taking place on the fields, and of course our son brought his soccer ball along just in case we found a spot for a family scrimmage! I was smitten by the labyrinth near our lodging; walking it had a similar impact as when entering the great hall of the museum.
