I have been struggling through the last few days, must be a time of retrograde. So I haven’t posted anything decent. I received this email, with a few realities of living in Vancouver. It certainly made me chuckle. Of course there are other more positive aspects, but again this just is what it is, and we all except it. I might add I live thirty minutes from the city! These are a few pictures I took off the net, of my favorite Vancouver spots. Kitsilano, Robson street, and gas town.Not posted are granville island and I haven't been to Stanley Park in years but it used to be a favorite place too!
