Touring Alcatraz in San Francisco

August 19th, 2013 @ 5:40pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

One place I have always wanted to visit when in San Francisco is Alcatraz, which is as notorious as some of its former prisoners. The 9 hectare island sits about 2.4kms from San Francisco and has had many lives. First as a lighthouse, military fort and military prison in the 1860s, then as a federal […]

I love to showcase the works of local photographers as there are so many talented camera-wielding folks in this town of all skill levels. I never thought of myself as a photographer but after publishing over 14,880 photos to Flickr and writing over 5,550 photo-filled blog posts, I guess I have quite the library at […]

Although none of these things are truly welcome, it’s easy to stay upbeat around town. There are still plenty of events and festivals to enjoy along with the PNE (and PNE concert series). Here […]

The Squamish Valley Music Festival was the largest ever this year, with over 17,000 jubilant concert-goers packing the Logger Sports Grounds in Squamish for this festival that first began in 2010.
