Vancouver!

We spent 3 days in our favorite city in North America this past weekend. Vancouver BC is a treat–a terrific walking city, wonderfully integrated water, beaches, mountains and urban buzz. We’ve enjoyed it for decades. I think the first time we went up there together was for our delayed honeymoon. Gary Carpenter was working in the hotel biz in those days and he helped us get a reduced rate at the Four Seasons there. We were blown away with it all. Fruit in the room and everything. We really felt like grown ups.

This time, the hotel we stayed at had games in the room–pick up sticks, yoyo, a slinky, a kaleidoscope (see pic). Guess we’re regressing in our old age.

Here are some pictures of our walks this past weekend. It was sunny and high 50s/low 60s. We also went to the Vancouver Art Museum. They had an amazing exhibit by modern Chinese artists (there’s one pic of one wall in the room by Sun Xun–it was projections of classical landscape scrolls overlaid with moving birds and fish, also in the classical style. Just incredible!)
