What have I been doing since the last time I blogged here? Well, besides a 10 day trip to California to visit cousins, Auntie and attend the graduation of my grandson from UCSB, I've had a very busy time. For two days I was involved in a media culinary tour of Steveston and Richmond, two of Vancouver's suburban municipalities. Here I am riding a cruiser bike on one of those days. We rode down the river to a heritage farm, our first stop for that day and the beginning of an amazing culinary adventure.
The summer finally arrived, and in good time as California was so lovely and hot. So I headed for my favorite swimming/picnicing place at Second Beach and had a little picnic on the beach after a refreshing swim in the pool. That will be the first of many such outings to the pool and beach this summer. One of my favorite pasttimes!
And then there was the International Jazz Festival. I missed some of it but did manage to get into one event and of course there was all that free music on Canada Day. And just look what a lovely venue it was, right by False Creek yacht harbour. And a lovely sunny day so everyone enjoyed lounging on the grass while we listened to music.
Summer is just beginning. There's be lots more fun in the sun. Just watch this blog and I'll keep you posted!
