THE TULIPS ARE OUT!

Great weekend we’ve had! :)

I would definitely recommend you go to English Bay and Stanley Park these days as the tulips are in full bloom and some late blooming cherry blossoms and other varieties of flowers make for a colorful and very pleasant outing around downtown Vancouver.

38% RENT INCREASE?!!!

I don’t follow the news very much but somehow this one found its way to me yesterday and now this one and that one, too.

All I can say is “Ouch!” and encourage renters to vote against this — which means “vote against Gordon Campbell” — on May 12th.

WHAT’S THE SCORE?

I don’t have a TV*…  I just heard the trumpets glaring in my neighbourhood and some distant shouts of satisfaction.  Let’s hope the ‘Nucks make it 2-0 in this series. :)

 

*by choice — can’t stand all those bad news!  I wouldn’t mind some quality TV time once in a while, but I still don’t miss it one bit…

SNOWSHOEING UNDER THE MOONLIGHT

Looks like the snowshoeing season is nearing its end.  Let me share with you some photos from my favorite snowshoeing outing of the season (March 10th 2009; full moon night on Dam Mountain):

At the bottom of the photo is Thunderbird Ridge, a regular detour for us — great views there, too!
