August 21st, 2014 @ 1:44pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

Vancouver is an ever-changing city, with new construction cranes popping every day, scaffolding being dismantled, new pits being excavated, and demolitions scheduled.

There are many resources […]

Vancouver is such a photogenic city. Shimmering glass towers, unique architectural elements, sandy beaches, rocky shores, mountains covered in blankets of evergreen. Over the years there have been over 38,000 photos shared with the Miss604 Flickr Pool and I have to admit, my favourite day of the week is when I get to prepare these […]

Vancouver Icons: The English Bay Slide

August 19th, 2014 @ 4:10pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

If I had a band, I think the English Bay Slide would be a pretty fun name. It could refer to a new, funky dance move or it could reference a great source of summer fun in Vancouver. All kidding aside, the slide in English Bay, proudly waving the Canadian flag each summer season, is […]

However, there’s a whole lot to be explored and appreciated under the park’s 1,001 acre canopy so I’d love […]
