Friday night I got asked to watch Doctor Strange with Adrian and his sister and friend. The theatre that we were going to was the one in Richmond. I have never been to the Silvercity in Richmond. Therefore, I was not PREPARED for the clusterfuck that is the underground parkade which is also the parkade for a T&T supermarket.
Needless to say, when I got there it was at 5pm. The movie doesn’t “start” until 5:15pm. The reason why I put the time in quotation marks is because (having worked at a Silvercity in Victoria for 9 years) that usually means at 5:15pm ads will be playing for a good 5 minutes and then the trailers will be another 10minutes. So I had a good 15 minutes before the actual movie starts. Continue reading →
I haven’t written a mini-blog post in forever! I’m slowly getting back into it.
After a few days of pouring rain in Vancouver (or Raincouver for those of us who live here), the sun finally came out. Not to miss this somewhat otherwise “rare” opportunity before more rainclouds decide to pour in, I joined my friend for a walk along English Bay.
There’s just something about visiting places you used to go to all the time. Everyone has those places. It’s like a comfort blanket. You go to these familiar places because it makes you feel safe and it’s been there for you through many tough times. Or maybe that’s just me?
Queen Alexander Beach is one of those places for me.
Kinsol trestle is located in Shawnigan Lake where it’s a 1 km walk towards the site. The view and height is amazing! It’s an easy walk that’s even accessible via wheelchair. The river that flows underneath it is the Koksilah River.
I think the last time I went to Whytecliff Park was in 2009. I had just gotten out of a relationship and I decided to venture off to Vancouver to explore parks and beaches because it was the only thing that helped keep my mind off of things. I guess every one has that same type of vice.
Now 7 years later and living in Vancouver, I went on a spontaneous adventure to West Vancouver. (I originally wanted to go on Saturday, but an accident happened on the main road and so I was detoured. Therefore deciding to just go the next day). Thankfully, the weather was still gorgeous.
I jettisoned off in the late afternoon hoping to arrive a couple hours before sunset.
When I arrived it was pretty much how I remembered it all those years ago: vibrant and calm.
In the middle of my treck up the side of a cliff, I noticed that on top of the tiny rock island across from me there was a couple. The tiny rock island is accessed via along the rocks and boulders that led out towards the island. The water was already elevated to where most of the rocks and boulders were submerged. I think everyone there was wondering when the couple would decide to wade there way back to the beachside.
