The Caribbean

I noticed on my way home last night that The Caribbean apartment building has put up their Christmas decorations. It’s pretty similar to many of the buildings in Vancouver’s West End, and doesn’t really stand out. So why am I posting about it?

Flight 2050

Rather than taking the ferry to nearby Victoria, I decided to splurge and book us a flight on a seaplane with Harbour Air.

Remembrance Day

We arrived for the Remembrance Day ceremony at Victory Square a little later than I would have liked. This meant we were further away from the action and couldn’t see anything. Le sigh. <!–more–> But the fact that there were so many people made me happy. It’s important that the community comes together to recognise […]
