Vancouver Photos of the Week

May 15th, 2014 @ 10:44am by Rebecca Bollwitt

We’ve had some gloriously sunny days in early May, which have resulted in beach time, lunch breaks outside, quality patio time, and sunsets that make us pause and say: “I’m pretty happy to be here.” Thank you for capturing these moments and sharing them with the Miss604 Flickr Pool and #Photos604 on Instagram: Photo credit: […]
