Last night I had a look at entries of this blog from March 2013 to see what I had been doing exactly one year ago. One post relates how Telus charges outrageous rates (~$70) for the simple service of forwarding a telephone number to another number. One year later they are charging even more! Another post deals with seagulls at the nice old Burger King at Main Street & 2nd Ave (there are/were actual real trees on the parking lot). That place is either gone already or will be very very soon to make room for another high-rise. A third post extols the virtues of a fabulous and cheap restaurant at Renfrew and First avenue. That location and a few next to it are now vacant. Time to build something more revenue-friendly? And you wonder why I call Vancouver vicious?
But there is hope on the weather front. Denise had a plan of finishing a quilt at the same time as the poor weather finally came to an end. While there is still some lousy weather in the forecast, the quilt is done. Remember: You saw it here first ;-)
Her garden seems to reflect her hope for warmer, drier, and sunnier days, because a few colourful thingies have dare to rear their heads out of the dirt.

After quite a lot of stuff has been stuffed back into backpacks, shopping bags, and suitcases, followed bya yummy lunch with Denise at Bayview Restaurant, I am catching the 14:30 ferry back to Horseshoe Bay.
