Did I mention that the Vancouver Winter Olympics start in a couple of weeks?
As we were walking around the city we were enjoying buds and flowers and. . .
this community garden.
It was looking spring like with fresh herbs and spring perennials looking green and healthy.
The Cyclamen in these pots outside this hotel were real ..
The beauty of Vancouver is that you can walk around the seawall in the morning. . .
go for a bit of sailing before lunch. . .
take in a round of golf for the afternoon. . .
and then take a gondola up the mountain to ski a few runs before the day is done.
We're all watching the weather for the next few weeks hoping the freezing level will be low enough for the snow they are needing to make on Cypress mountain. Cypress mountain is where the Snowboarding events are being held.
We will be having a state of the mountain address later this morning. They are doing all they can but with this winter being warmer than usual .. they have their work cut out for them.
Even though it does seem like there has been some excessive spending for the Olympic games. . .
and I have no ticket in my pocket. . .
(you can also see a beautiful little video of Vancouver on that site. . well worth the look)
I hope that the games will be enjoyed by all.
I am a proud British Columbian.
On the day of the opening ceremonies. . . our flag will be up .. .
windstorm or not.
