I fell asleep getting this up last night – what a fun day.
That tree? One of my favourites in the world. It’s in Stanley Park, by the rowing club. If I lived in Vancouver I’d come sit under it every day. Vancouver is stunning in the fall – all the brilliant colours we don’t get in Calgary. W and I spent half our time stopping to wow over enormous maple leaves, adding bigger and bigger specimens to the bundle in my hand.
We started the day early with a segment on BT Vancouver – you can watch it here.
Then we headed to the Whitecap offices in Gastown to do a couple phone interviews. Fog!
In the afternoon, we walked through the park to the Vancouver Aquarium. Highlights: SpongeBob SquarePants 4-D (the Great Jelly Rescue) and an otter cleaning its face. Is there anything cuter? I think not.
Could I have any more forehead wrinkles? I think not.
We wrapped up the evening with a tea party at one of my favourite places in the world – Barbara Jo’s Books to Cooks. I could spend hours being inspired by the gorgeous books on her shelves (and tables, and piano) – the interwebs will never replace this kind of cookbook shopping experience.
Keegan Connor Tracy came!
And now, Day 2… stay tuned!
