Fun signs to use and share, collected on our travels. Man cave rules. Larra’s favorite. It helps if you have a bulldozer or monster truck. If it ain’t flat now, it will be when you get back.

The Canada-USA Border

Sept. 15, 2016 – For me, crossing the border from the USA to Canada always involved crossing a lake or river, because I’ve always done it from Michigan or points East. And the border with Mexico, where I’ve crossed it, always had a river and/or a wall, or at least a big fence. So driving […]

Lochiel School, 1924

Sept. 15, 2016 – We found this old schoolhouse at the Campbell Valley Regional Park. It even has an outhouse. I was particularly impressed with this big old pine tree towering over the school. When I commented on it Larra looked at me funny. “Is it old? I didn’t even notice.” Pacific Northwest girl that […]

Langley, BC

Sept 15th, 2016 – Today Larra took me out to the rural side of Langley, out by Campbell Valley Regional Park. It’s horsey out here. Larra and I were sitting on a bench when we heard “clip-clop clip-clop” trotting up the road. By the time I got my camera out the rider had slowed to […]

River Rock Casino

Sept 13, 2016 – River Rock Casino. We were riding the sky train back from the airport when I spied the casino and commented on it. Larra said she’d heard of it but had never been there, so we hurriedly jumped off at the stop. All I can say is, “Wow.” Glitz and glimmer and […]

Vancouver’s Lookout Tower

Sept. 13th, 2016 – Walking around Gastown, I kept seeing a great lookout platform towering above the city. So Larra and I walked over, I handed them a pile of colorful Canadian Monopoly money, and they gave us two tickets for the high-speed elevator to the top of the tallest building in Vancouver. It was […]

Cruising Vancouver

Sept. 13, 2016 – Downtown Vancouver – First off, even though I’ve been around the world twice, I’ve NEVER seen seagulls as big as the ones in Vancouver. Of course, this guy is hanging out at an outdoor restaurant, and is eating handouts all day long. He’s bigger than a chicken – he’s the size […]

Pianos on the Street

Sept. 13, 2016 – North Vancouver, BC – We stumbled on the “Pianos on the Street” program, and Larra played a song for us. Well, at least until the street musician from over on the corner came over, complained about her lack of talent, and pulled a tarp over the piano. LOL Anyway, I enjoyed […]

Vancouver Ferry – the Sea Bus

Sept. 13th, 2016 – Boy, a day pass on Vancouver transit is quite a value. Not only did we travel from one end of the line to the other, and back again, but we also used it to take the Sea Bus across to North Vancouver. Two megayachts in floating drydocks. Container ship loading/unloading dock. […]

CPR Waterfront Train Station

Sept. 13, 2016 – If you’ve seen my post about the Art Deco train station in Omaha, you know I’m a fan of trains, rail and stations. So here’s where we got off the Skytrain in downtown Vancouver – the Neoclassical Canadian Pacific Railway station, built in 1914. Wow. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waterfront_station_(Vancouver) We enjoyed the pub/restaurant, too. […]
