Festive Friday

I thought it might be fun to share festive holiday shots every Friday this month. In my first installment, I'll share some of the things that James and I spotted while out for a walk through downtown Vancouver last night. Look at these adorable little salt and pepper shakers! Many office buildings offer impressive decorations... Continue Reading →

Lumière At English Bay

Lumière is an annual event here in Vancouver that is said to be inspired by light and artistic expression. A few minutes walk from our apartment, at English Bay, is the current home to one of this year's 4 public installations. Recently, on my way home from work one evening, I decided to check it out....

Definitely Dali

If you're strolling around Downtown Vancouver any time soon, you may come across Salvador Dali's, "Space Venus". I'd have said you'd find yourself face-to-face with the sculpture but, well, this Venus is clearly headless. Her neck is adorned with a typical Dali "melting" clock, made most famous perhaps by his 1931 painting, "The Persistence of... Continue Reading →

A Life Update

The last time I checked in, James and I were in the grips of a nasty virus that seemed to have permanently moved in with us. I'm happy to report that we're both feeling a lot better. We're still not 100% recovered, but we'll take what we can get. I thought I'd fill you in... Continue Reading →

Pitt River Regional Greenway

Our house has been hit by the nasty cold making its way around these parts. My department at work hasn't been fully staffed in weeks as we each take turns with sick days. Just when you start to feel better, symptoms return and knock you back down. James and I forced ourselves to take a... Continue Reading →

Derby Reach Regional Park

My parents have their trailer down at the Derby Reach campground, which sits on the Fraser River. They invited James and me to come stay with them for a night, and we jumped at the chance. After lunch we took a leisurely walk through the park, which makes you feel like you're about as far... Continue Reading →

Iona Beach Regional Park

Just north of the Vancouver International Airport, at the mouth of the Fraser River, is Iona Beach Regional Park. Popular with walkers and cyclists, it's a lovely place to spend some time in the sunshine. The area is dotted with logs that have been washed ashore over time. At the end of the trail you'll...

Barnston Island

The only way to visit this tiny island is to take the free ferry, which consists of a small barge that is pushed across Parson's Channel. The ride takes 5 minutes and, once you arrive, you take the perimeter road by bike or foot. We brought our bikes, and started off along the country road.... Continue Reading →
