It was quite late when we got there, about 45 min before closing, so the goodies were almost gone.

This is one of my favourites – Passion Fruit cake.

I think this is called Dark Chocolate Gateux.

Sunny September Seaside

It was a sunny Wednesday afternoon.  I had just finished my dental appointment and decided to take a quick stroll in my favourite seaside neighbourhood.

Railroad track @ Dundarave

The faithful and hardworking bee was busy enjoying the nice weather.

Beautiful afternoon to be out and walk the seawall.

image

Looking east, there is Stanley Park, with Lions Gate Bridge immediate to the left.  On the right side is the Kitsilano/Point Grey area.

Looking north towards the mountain.

Hope everyone is enjoying his/her day, no matter where you are or whatever the weather.

Harmony Arts Festival

Harmony Arts Festival is an annual event held usually at the end of July/beginning of August at Ambleside in West Vancouver.  It attracts local artists and vendors, and it boosts the community spirits.  It also brings people together to spend time on a sunny August evening.

image

This evening, we take a leisure walk along the seawall and enjoy the summer night.

image

image

Of course, there has to be food.

One of my favourites @@ but I have little strength to walk towards the booth…

image

Another great evening, watching Lions Gate Bridge with Stanley Park on the right, sunset on the opposite side.

The Village at Park Royal

I grow up in the area, and I have seen its changes from the early 90’s.  History?  Perhaps some other day.

This evening, we were at the Village doing the summer night stroll.

image

As you can see, there are plenty of people taking advantage of the cool evening temperature and the longer daylight hours.

image

The forecast calls for another sunny day.

image

The sun starts to set, and we are again grateful to be able to spend the evening with each other.

A Surprising Visitor

The other day after work, we drive to a local beach and greet an unexpected visitor.

image

She is an elephant seal, and she has been at the beach for the last few days.

Plenty of sunshine for her to warm up.

image

 

Thank you for the opportunity meeting you.  Magnificent animal indeed.

巷內簡餐

當了二十多年的移民,最懷念的不外乎是自己家鄉的食物,那ㄧ份味道,那ㄧ份情感。只可惜自己住所離溫哥華及列治文有些距離,要想解饞也不是十幾分鐘內可以做到的。

巷內簡餐。

好名字。這家台灣人開的家庭式餐廳,坐落于西溫(West Vancouver) Marine Drive跟14街 (14th Street)的Village Square內。店面不大, 可是煮出來的東西卻是風味十足 我最常叫的就是豬排飯 但鹹酥雞飯及雞排飯也是很好吃的喔

老闆娘服務好,態度也很親切,有興趣的朋友可以去試試喔!
