and just like that

I find myself in Vancouver this week!

I am very happy to be here again after eight years, good memories are all coming back to my mind

I love Vancouver

the feel, the views, the food, the people, the water, Stanley Park, the North...

also, my new stripey blanket is coming along really nice ~ if I may say so

and it enjoys the 24th floor view with me

I am off to add a few more rows to the blanket

good night pretty city

we will meet again tomorrow in sunshine for some wonderful walks and picture time
