Vancouver Photos of the Week

October 9th, 2014 @ 9:44am by Rebecca Bollwitt

Just as we thought the rain was here to stay and our pumpkin patches would get washed out, we’ve had a spectacularly warm October with technicolour sunsets, bright moons in the night sky, and early fall outdoor adventures.

Even though the season is changing, construction cranes swing overhead, and rush hour traffic continues to flow over our many bridges, it’s as though the pause button has been hit on Vancouver’s gloriously sunny summer.
