It's Beautiful and We Want to Stay

Posted by on 2 August 2010

We've been in Canada less than 6 hours and I already think I want to stay. It's perfect weather. The sun is shining and there's a nice breeze. The windows are open! We had a nice walk around the neighborhood while our hosts familiarized us with places within walking distance. We can walk to the grocery store!

The house we're staying in is beautiful, the neighborhood quiet. The neighbor from across the street already came  over, introduced himself and invited us over to a party they are having this evening.

I'm sure we'll have lots more to say and tomorrow it's going to be time to dig in and return to our usual work schedule. We'll keep you posted!

    I'm with you. This is crazy; I'm already considering it.

    I love Vancouver in the summer...the winters with 30-40 straight days of rain can be really hard to take though. It is one of the nicest cities I've ever been to though...

    Joel, take instruments to the party!! Say hey from us.

    Shawn, here's the trick about the rain is that most days, even if it doesn't actually stop raining, it gets bright for a while. You HAVE to go outside every day, rain or shine. Suddenly, the rain doesn't bother you - in fact, you like it 'cause it keeps the tourists indoors! ;-P

    We're certainly not tourists ;) In Eire, we'd got for 5-mile (or longer) walks, and when it started raining, we just kept walking. Five minutes later, the sun was out, drying us, and the air was fresher than ever.

    Ah, by the time they started the festivities across the street I was officially whacked. Spent the evening in the comfy chair in the living room, not moving a muscle, bulding the strength to climb the stairs for bed.
