“To be honest, she’s an alien, don’t tell anyone though….” – False Creek Seawall – Vancouver Public Labyrinth

When I first placed a medium sized dinosaur egg in the middle of the centre of what would become the Vancouver Public Labyrinth, it was not large enough to stand nor sit on.

Far from it.

Then one day I returned for a maintenance visit and of all the stones, that was the only one which was missing.

I re-placed the disappeared centre stone with a much larger, heavier stone. Not just a dinosaur egg but a really big stone.

Some days later, I found yet another large rock during low tide in False Creek and placed it beside the first re-placement stone.

Since then, I have randomly seen people stand upon those two rocks once they reach the centre.

This is the first instance of seeing someone sitting on them.

Perhaps reaching the centre of the Vancouver Public Labyrinth then sitting and watching the setting set is a thing . . .
