The 9 O’Clock Gun
This does what you think it should to at the time you think it should do it. It’s little quirks like this that made me like Vancouver so much. There’s this, horns that play the first few notes of “O Canada” at noon, some sidewalks have leaves imprinted in them so it’s sort of always fall… cute things like that. It’s charming.
Glass flooring, glass backing
I started out my first lengthy walk in the rose garden at Stanley Park. As someone easily distracted by colorful objects, a garden seems like a natural enough place to get lost.
Summon the mist
Morning of the first full day and one gets the weather one should expect being near a coastal temperate rainforest.
Unpack bags, open window.
I recently returned from my Vancouver vacation, a legitimate vacation that didn’t relate to work travels. I actually got to unwind and forget about my normal day-to-day and fill it with something else entirely. It was a blast. I met a handful of awesome people I had only known through the Internet before and they helped contribute places to go, things to see, and food/drink to consume. Vancouver is a ridiculously beautiful place and I’ll be sharing a number of photos from those five and a half days for the next while. My Flickr is littered with related sets, if you wanted to skip ahead/had a couple hours to kill.
Also it goes without saying but wanderlust is a hell of a drug.
