The first few days of spring in Vancouver, Canada have seen sun, first signs of new life, and warm temperatures reaching +15C (60F). The days have highlighted a clear advantage for being present in the “Canadian Southwest,” compared to the lingering winter hanging on so desperately in other parts of the country.
Over an 11-hour period, I’m fortunate to catch a few special moments:
- early risers practicing tai chi in Vancouver’s Strathcona neighbourhood,
- racers nearing the finish of “The Cap Crusher” at North Vancouver’s Cleveland Dam,
- breezy kite-flying, strolling, and biking at Garry Point Park in Richmond’s Steveston, and
- the last hazy light illuminating Simon Fraser University on top of Burnaby Mountain.
