It was an overcast and chilly May week, good for taking snaps and cocooning at home – but venture out I did to run errands downtown and hanging out in the neighbourhood on the weekend.
I went downtown for a hair cut and passed this place (and wished I was going there, instead.)
And then, here, which is right next door.
Instead, I went home and had some of these.
The next day was the annual West End Car Free Day, where the whole of Denman Street, from Robson to Davie, is filled with vendors and community groups.
And we did have some of this from one of the neighbourhood gelato stores.
And this American Robin.
Afterwards we walked through Stanley Park and saw this family of ducks.
We saw the last of this years’ Rhododendrons,
And the first of the Fox Gloves.
A little taste of my new neighbourhood on a raining April afternoon, bursting with colour from tulips planted everywhere.
The inside is prettier than the outside.
Tulips and Palm Trees.
The seagulls are bold.
The Great Blue Heron nests.
The “laughing” statue.
