Goodbye Vancouver

March 8, 2010

Our last day in Vancouver was stunning.  Sunny, warm, beautiful.  We went for a long walk from Kits beach to Granville Island with Miss JDC =). I love this place. It grounded me, brought me amazing beautiful peace and helped me to see a wonderful abundance of joy and love everywhere, everyday. I can’t wait […]

A walk in the woods

March 5, 2010

We’re suffering post-olympic trauma.  No more biathlons to watch during breakfast, no more curling pub nights, no more hockey ridiculousness to throw ourselves into.  I can’t believe it’s over!  The city is slowly acclimating to its old self – streets are a little cleaner, transit is far less crowded and evenings in downtown are much […]

February 23, 2010

We’ve spent the last few days taking in the Olympic sites and the gorgeous Vancouver sunshine. It hasn’t rained at all since we got here four days ago and we’re hoping the trend keeps up for a while. This city is abuzz with so much energy. Thousands of people walk the pedestrian downtown core, red […]

Greetings from Canada

February 19, 2010

Apologies for my delinquency in writing. It’s been hard trying to find internet access during the last week.  Vegas, specifically, was lacking – unless I wanted to pay 6 dollars an hour for it.  And considering we lost money in open-face poker (which I am still cranky about three days later), it really wasn’t very […]

English Bay on a warm afternoon

September 12, 2009

Like London, Vancouver turns into a magically beautiful city in the sun. 24 celsius and clear today. The greenest city on earth (literally) is gorgeous in this Indian Summer.
