Sept. 15, 2016 – This was a fun day trip that Larra took me on. It’s a big park, with about 25 km. of hiking and horse riding trails. No, it’s not a puppy dog. Leave the coyotes alone! Keep your dog on a leash! Check out the moss on the roof.

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.

It was […]

Exploring Downtown 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 […]

ICBC

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. The “flying saucers” in […]

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.

Larra’s Place, Surrey, BC

Sept. 9, 2016 – Back at Larra’s place in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. Of the 10 1/2 weeks we were on the road, we spent almost three of them on my 100+ acres in Georgia. Now we’re back at Larra’s, on her 1/10 of an acre lot. It’s quite a contrast. At least Larra lives […]
