Alistair joined us on Saturday, and for whatever reason, he doesn’t suffer from jet lag. Today we left early for an excursion to Capilano Suspension Bridge, which was great fun. Then we had a picnic lunch in a park close by, where Oliver discovered a nice swimming hole in the stream running through the park. We others found the water a little chilly. This was followed by a few hours at Third Beach and a hamburger dinner, and Bernice joined us for that. Now everybody is very tired and we hope the kids fall asleep soon so we can also go to bed.
I brought the boat back to Vancouver and we are busy running errands and preparing for the next sets of visitors. In the summer, there are three weeks of free concerts at the local CBC building, and today Sheila and I met there to take a break, listen to some nice Latin jazz in the sun and grab lunch. Now it is back to the grindstone.
Sheila came back from Europe on Monday and we are enjoying our time together in Vancouver. We are busy seeing friends, going out to nice restaurants, walking, bicycle riding etc. Unfortunately, the weather is not all that great, a bit chilly and grey or rainy. That also gives us lots of time to read the news, among the items a report of a great white shark off Mallorca (click here). I guess we will have to keep our eyes open when we return there in November.
