Reminded Again



Today, I had the rare pleasure of being in downtown Vancouver. For those of you who know me well, you know that my adventures off the North Shore are limited - not because I hate going downtown, but because I love the North Shore so much.

But I was quickly reminded what a beautiful city our whole city is. I mean, visually, you would be hard to win an argument that there is a prettier city out there. But as I sat on the corner of a building located right by the waters edge, I enjoyed the city life for all the west coast as to offer.

Parking underground, I laughed as I emerged to a huge Tim Hortons line up. Only a good ol Canuck is willing to wait for their timmies. As I sat outside (with a quicker version of coffee today), I watched the best of our city walk by. Lulu lemons jogging past....north face jackets, coffee in everyone's hand, power suits walking beside mom's with strollers, hard to tell who is a local and who is a visitor.

As I sat in my meeting, I enjoyed the huge office window and watched the float planes come in and out . With the wind making the water glisten with the white caps and the blue skies emerge over the mountains, well if you have to be stuck in a meeting - that is where you want to do it.

The only thing that wasn't right about the morning.....my camera was at home.

I hope to visit Vancouver someday. It always seemed out of reach when I lived on the East Coast but now that I'm only one province over and within driving distance of BC I might get the chance. Plus I have friends living in Sooke who have been begging me to visit for years!

Oh I wanna go! My plans fell through this year, but maybe next summer :)
