In the past 5 yr. have you gone to the downtown Bay where all the escalators were working?
The Flatiron Mural on the Gooderham Building – very cool.
This is the place to go in Toronto for delicious ice-cream, Sweet Jesus it’s good.
Bangers and mash at the Dover Arms pub, let’s just say it was interesting.
Great time in T.O. Like a big US city without the problems.
Good place to sit and get out of the rain, Vancouver Convention East Level M.
The original Post Office Bell at Sinclair centre rings every hour.
Oh my goodness more snow today.
The 18 foot globe at convention ctr is cool especially lit up at night.
I guess this is one solution to the extreme parking problem in Vancouver’s West End
all that remains of the former Bavarian Arms Cafe (´60s) on Skyline dr North Vancouver after a fire.
Finally, it has been a long winter in Vancouver.
Opened in 1912 this 270 ft tall bldg was the tallest bldg in the British Empire. It was scaled by the Human Fly in 1918.
Yip Sang Building. Apparently Yip had 20 children, 15 boys and 5 girls. The funny part is the door on the second floor. It leads to nowhere. What do you think Yip used that for?
Even the Canada geese at English Bay are enjoying the snow. Why fly south?
It’s happening again, the bike lane nice and clear, and the pedestrian path? Is the mayor a biker?
Global warming is a hoax or so says Donald Trump. I’m beginning to think there’s some truth to what he says…we got more snow this morning and never in recent memory has there been this much snow in Vancouver.
Dominion Building: Completed 1910 this was Vancouver’s first first steel-framed high-rise at 13 stories.
One of the nicest family hikes is, in my opinion, Cypress Falls in West Vancouver.
I spotted this device / structure / shelter / artwork ??? on top of the pilings on False Creek. What the heck is it?
I love the pixelated effect of Douglas Copeland’s ‘Digital Orca” at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
Located in Charleson Park the public artwork “Love Your Bean” by artist Cosimo Cavallaro gives me a craving for peanut M&Ms.
So far we’ve been spared but often January is the month for fog. When it is foggy I often wonder how the residents of Coal Harbour get a good sleep as the fog horns of ships in the harbour sound every twenty minutes or so.
The False Creek Ferries have been crisscrossing False Creek since 1982. In the beginning I wondered if the service was going viable but more than 30 years they’re still going strong.
Many years ago the Sylvia Hotel was a favourite stop for me and my university friends. It was affectionately known as The Saliva.
ECUAD will be moving from Granville Island to a new “False Creek Flats” location in Fall 2017. I personally think the Granville Island location or a location closer to downtown is a better environment for an Art School than the Flats.
They are setting up for Cavalia Odysseo on south False Creek. With the recent news that Ringling Bros. circus is closing permanently this May…This may be your chance to see a circus, although Cavalia Odysseo features horses as opposed to elephants.
I love the look of bamboo but I have never had the nerve to plant bamboo in my garden as it can quickly grow out of control. I stopped to admire this yard of beautiful bamboo in Portland Oregon.
Whenever you are at Vancouver International Airport take some time to enjoy their collection of Native Art. My favourite is the Jade Canoe by Bill Reid.
Can anybody tell me why the city of Vancouver has cleared the bike lanes but the pedestrian paths remain covered in ice and snow?
