Last night I was awake half the night hacking my brains out. I feel okay though, and am relieved I am not contagious, so I dont have to feel guilty to go to work coughing.
This morning, in spite of the gray skies, we took the kids out for the day. Crossing the Pitt River Bridge as we leave Maple Ridge. The New Bridge is really taking shape now. The first few suspension cables are now in place.
First we went to Grandma's house to drop off a TV for Aunty Valerie. Then we went to Keiths office to drop off the laptop and files.
Half an hour later, we enter downtown Vancouver. I love the banners on the lamp posts. They make a splash of colour in the sea of grey. Gray skies, gray buildings!
Then we went for a toot around Grandville Island. This is a former industrial area below the Grandville Street Bridge. The banners here say WINTERUPTION. I thought that was a good play on words. The water you see here is salt water from the pacific, coming into False Creek.
What is wrong with this picture? And NO I have not gained 150 lbs! Nor has Keith Lost the same amount! It is actually our reflection in a convex mirror. If you look closely, you can see my new hair cut. Yup, those long locks are now history!
Okay, this one is better..... A nice man offered to take our photo. I always worry that such people may turn and run off with my camera! But one has to have some faith in humanity!
How many people can you fit in a canoe? Well that depends how big your canoe is! This buch seemed like rookies as they didnt have their paddling in sync. But they seemed to be having alot of fun!Inside the market we had a nice fresh lunch and then lined up for a treat at the bakery! I had a venitian florentine!
Nick was feeling all romantic and chose a sweet heart to nibble on.
Following that we went to watch the old Guy play his hockey game. Our team lost but is was alot of fun jumping, yelling and cheering. Here, our boys in blue scored their first of the game.
