A Short and Sweet Holiday

Today is day three out of five in Vancouver and it has been three days of bliss, walking in one magnificent garden after another under perfect conditions.

Imagine waking up three days in a row and spending hours simply exploring a beautiful city, with lovely people, and on foot. Moodling, oohing and ahhing, taking photos, sitting in the sun and smelling the salt air. Not to mention the amazing coffee and delicious food.

For the first time I am writing this short blog post on my phone. Of course, I have no idea how this will turn out, but I often suggest trying new things and made a conscious decision to leave my laptop behind. We will discover together how this goes.

Coincidentally, I am celebrating four years this week in May of weekly blog posts. Please allow me to thank you profusely for your care, kindness and attention as we accompany each other through the seasons and I share my musings.

“We are born and we die and in between we have the chance to keep each other company and that’s the thing that counts the most.” John Tarrant.

See you next week. In the meantime May you find and create moments of beauty and joy. Warmest wishes, Trudy

    Vancouver is and always will be one of my favourite cities. BC is magical in general, but Vancouver is a gem. Walking along the Sea Wall, enjoying a coffee or cocktail while watching the sun go down on English Bay. The Mountains for a backdrop, and the smell of the ocean make for magical memories.

    I miss that city.

      Hi Daniel:
      You clearly know Vancouver. Yesterday I walked part of the sea wall, strolled through the rhodo garden in Stanley Park and had lunch in English Bay. Wonderful! Thanks for capturing a beautiful day in Vancouver. Best wishes, Trudy

      Hi Shelley: the beautiful weather continues and the side benefit of my moodling is a great sense of well being. It helps to be in this atmosphere where the air is so light and fresh?? (I don’t really know how to describe it) plus all those rhododendrons as big as trees and in every shade of the colour spectrum. Plus the dogwoods and on and on. Good medicine! I wish everyone could be here to enjoy this. So lovely to hear from you. Thank you. Trudy
