Umbrellas have been well-used during the first week of June but as I recall, it’s traditionally a soggy time of year anyway. One can only hope that all of this precipitation will give away to sunny summer days filled with beach times and patio refreshments. Regardless, photographers around Vancouver have once again managed to capture […]

On a sunny Vancouver morning I set out on a walk with a dear friend around the Stanley Park sea wall. We ducked into the park around Second Beach and decided to take a detour through the gardens around the pitch and putt course. Armed with our pocket cameras, we spent close to an hour […]

Canucks Across Canada: The Ultimate Fan Road Trip

May 16th, 2012 @ 10:34am by Rebecca Bollwitt

There’s nothing like a summer road trip in Canada and for those who have the time, getting across the country is a goal many would like to accomplish.

It’s been rather windy over the last few days but my favourite thing about the cool breeze is that is sweeps over the inlet revealing a crystal clear view of the North Shore. I can look out from downtown Vancouver […]
