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

ICBC used to lease this building, and Larra worked here, too. Ground floor, facing the sidewalk. Great views, she said. A shop where Larra […]

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 […]

A sandwich shop where Larra often ate lunch when she worked at ICBC. Interior of the Quayside mall. After a long year of deleted selfies, I’m finally figuring out how […]

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 Langley, BC Auto Show, Part 1

Saturday, September 10, 2016 – Larra surprised me this morning when she asked if I wanted to go to the car show in Langley, one of the largest in North America. I’d read about it in the news, but hadn’t bother asking her because I assumed she wouldn’t be interested. We had a great time. […]

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 […]
