Connecting with People and New Friends

This morning we’ll be visiting with new friends as we walk in the neighborhood taking in scenery and visiting. This afternoon we reconnect with Kathy, an aspiring virtual assistant who attended the Client Communication Clinic last Friday. We’ll be meeting her at a Waves Coffee Shop at 2:30 in North Vancouver on Lynn Valley Road. I like that name for a road. Maybe because my middle name is Lynn. If you’re in the North Vancouver area around 2:30, stop by and say hi.

Tonight we’re going to have dinner with some new friends. Their son lives in Yuba City California, approximately 45 minutes from our home base of operations in Roseville California. The husband is Irish and you know how Joel loves everything Irish. We look forward to a nice evening of good food, great conversation and some card playing.


  1. If you can take the time to walk in Lynn Valley – you’ll LOOOOOVVVE it. It doesn’t get any more westcoast city park than Lynn Canyon.

  2. Thanks for the heads up Caitlyn. We’ll have to see how much time we have. I can already tell that we’ll need another trip up here just to take in some more of the sights. Since this was primarily a business trip for us and not a vacation, we don’t have as much time or the budget to do the usual ‘touristy’ things.

    And yet just like our 5 weeks in Ireland in 2005, our favorite thing really is to walk around the neighborhood where we’re staying, enjoy the peace, the local shrubbery and meet nice peoople.

  3. So we ended up being able to walk Lynn Canyon park for a bit and crossed the suspension bridge – amazing! Fiona and Joel are a bit scared of heights but did manage to cross it.

    Our evening ended up even better than expected. The couple that had us over for dinner had their daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandkids come over also. The 2 girls are close to Fiona’s age so she made new friends and got to play with them at the park. They live in Pitt Meadows and we plan to spend another afternoon with them so Fiona can play with the girls again before we leave the area.
