Do you enjoy sitting outside, just basking in the feelings that only nature can provide especially in Burnaby Parks? Do you also hate being eaten alive by insects, drenched in rain and battered by the sun, while the grass gives your skin a uniquely itchy feeling, and ants decide that you are a fun mountain to climb? Well, those are just natural parts of being in the great outdoors, aren’t they? And yet, those are a few aspects of the outdoors that just never seem to find their way into all the faux poetry that people hash out, when it comes to being outside even if they are enjoying the facilities. There are no perfect conditions, no matter what anybody wants to pretend.
The outdoors has one major problem with it – you have absolutely no control over the weather, and it is likely to never be completely ideal. The Sun is either hidden behind a cloud, casting a dingy gray over the horizon, or it is pummeling you like you owe it money. There are bugs, there are random winds, and there are showers which just appear out of nowhere. Since there are never going to be ideal conditions outside, you need to deal with this fact by only partially connecting to it. Gazebos are a prime way of getting into nature without having nature whoop on you like the Native Americans did to Custer at Little Big Horn, and your Burnaby Parks have many of these gazebos.
A gazebo is great because the huge gusts of wind can be tempered into small, gentle breezes. The Sunlight that was causing you to feel 20 pounds heavier and sweat despite not doing anything now gives you the bright illumination you need to get in some light reading. The bugs which were once the bane of your existence are now a few feet away – and even more so, if you have a screened in gazebo. And if it rains, you don’t even have to care.
