GREEDY PIG

Project 365 Photos: #65

Yesterday’s fieldtrip to Vancouver was an epicurean delight. I felt like a greedy pig when we finally packed up and returned home. Our first stop was Meat and Bread, where I had the most delicious fresh roasted porchetta sandwich. They double bake then chop up the crackling and sprinkle it on the roasted pork before placing it in the freshly-baked ciabatta buns slathered with salsa verde. Bliss. I guess this means I’m not vegetarian after all.

CURIOSITY COLA

After lunch we stopped in at Revolver Coffee for some hand-brewed coffee that is absolutely de-li-cious! Such nice guys running the counters. It appears everyone in Gastown is super friendly, and a little bit hipster, true story!

REVOLVER

And because all of that wasn’t enough, we popped in to Kerrisdale for a little taste of Paris at Faubourg. The orange, chocolate meringue tart was simply out of this world! Worth every expensive crumb!!!!!

It’s Spring Break for BC students and today we paid another visit to our favourite spot in Vancouver–Gastown. It was buzzing full of Friday shoppers and people escaping their offices for fresh air and lunch. I discovered my new retail crush–Old Faithful Shop. I was drooling over the pure wool Hudson’s Bay blankets and the bare element lightbulbs and fixtures. I even love the company mascot asleep in his cubby. I’ll definitely go back soon. Gotta love my iPhone, especially when I don’t want to carry my DSLR around all day.

HARBOUR WALL

When I spotted the harbour wall, I was impressed by the repeating pattern and the way the greens, blues and greys intermingled. It makes me think that someone put a lot of thought into beautifying Vancouver’s Coal Harbour, right down to the Art Deco detailing on the sea wall (I apologize to all the architects out there who are laughing hysterically at me for calling it Art Deco. I have no idea if it is or not…just a guess).

 

where have you been all my life…

When I downloaded my photos and saw this one, I was actually surprised to see the red-roofed building. I’ve never noticed it before, and I was  surprised that Vancouver has such an “historic” building. We’re not that old, after all. Wouldn’t you just love to see inside the top of the building? I wonder what fabulous interiors there are!

Summer Ghosts

Project 365 Photos: #52

You can almost see the ghosts from summers past sitting on the sidewalk engrossed in conversation and drinking lattes!

A few crocuses popped up in my garden this week, and I almost jumped for joy. It’s official…I made it through another blah January and February in one piece. Hallelujah! For those of you lucky enough to wake up to sunshine for most of the year, and might not get the reference about January and February, it rains, rains, rains, rains, here in the winter months.

Sometimes I have to stop and think about how beautiful my home is. I live about 1 hour’s drive south of Vancouver, BC, but I spend a lot of time in this beautiful city. There are so many amazing sights and truly gorgeous natural beauty. It takes my breath away. I love you Vancouver.
