Homeless in Vancouver: Stucco with a dash of squirrel

Today I photographed a squirrel climbing stucco—the result was underwhelming. It really was one of those “you had to be there” moments.

Squirrel-dash stucco

The squirrel literally ran up the side of a building covered in grey stucco encrusted with little bits of white quartz and black obsidian—what’s called “salt and pepper dash stucco”.

The first time I say a squirrel run up the side of a three-storey stucco-clad apartment building, I was flabbergasted. I still don’t understand how they can do it but they can and they make it look effortless.

Whenever I’ve seen them do it, they’re scared witless so it couldn’t require a lot of thought and well, they are squirrels.

Aw, did the bad man across the lane putting out his garbage scare you?

Maybe that's because we know, from that Sylvester Stallone movie, that it's easy to fake vertical feats but filming them on the horizontal!
