Aloha Vancouver

Sept. 20, 2016 – Saying my farewells to Vancouver as Larra drives me to the airport.  I took a dozen selfies in this attempt. LOL. I saved the one that made Larra look good. I have NOT gotten the hang of this, yet! Larra’s right – I did lose most of my tan during this […]

Sept. 16, 2016 – It’s different here in Canada. The differences are subtle, but noticeable. Here’s one striking difference; the bicycle lane is next to the curb, and cars park outside of it.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

The Skytrain

Sept. 13, 2016 – The Vancouver transit Skytrain. These are completely automated. What’s cool is to sit in the very front. The view from the front seat – everything is automated.

Three Dog Bakery

Post Image

July 18, 2016 – Larra wanted this photo of Three Dog Bakery in Rochester, Michigan, for one of her friends in Vancouver, who has a shop with the same name. I had to turn around and go around the block twice before she got a good shot. That’s us in the red Toyota in the […]

Summer’s Over Already?

Post Image

When I got up this morning it was cold out, again. Finally, at 10 am, it got up to 15 C (60 F), so I put on my “driving up Haleakala volcano” clothing and ventured outside. To my surprise I saw ducks migrating south. I think the last five warm days that we had are […]

On Saturday and Sunday the realtor holds an open house. Sealed bids are accepted on Monday and Tuesday, and […]
