I actually didn't move too far from my last place but I'm definitely closer to the International District. Nearby my home is a Vietnamese Buddhist Temple, which offers free service on Saturday mornings. So I might try to get up and check that out some day.
Maybe it's just my optimism but this neighbourhood also feels a lot safer than the last, however I can't really vouch for that yet. Also nearby is a local church that does the food bank thing, which I went to one time ago. So there were folks walking to that with their bags.
But I think one of the gems in my new area is the Judkins Park and play field. A huge grassy area with benches and paths to enjoy.
I took some time out and used my new iPad Mini to sketch the scene, which was made easier using a stylus I just got in the mail.
I look forward to exploring more around my neighbourhood and maybe using the park for exercising or maybe convince Ian and his pals for a game of kickball.
