It’s been a while, since I wrote here, and that’s partly because I was often too tired in the evening after work to write anything. I’m recovering from a nasty illness that was fairly painful and at the worst point a little tiring, but now I’m nearly back to normal.
This past Saturday, Pam and I took a little picnic to the beach. We packed the car with food, folding chairs and a picnic blanket/tarp. While it was a little chilly, Locarno beach, the mountains and the city all made for a beautiful view:
Later, we went to a housewarming for my friend Tanya, who has gotten a great place on the opposite shore of False Creek from us (we joked that we could probably wave at each other across the water). While it took a little while for us to locate her new place, it did give us the chance to see a little more of the city as dusk began to fall.
It was a break from the stress of work, but that stress is probably going to let up fairly soon. It looks very likely that my contract at IBM will be ending next month, and I’ll be free to relax a little before I am working full-time once again. May is a great month to have some time to enjoy Vancouver, when it is the ‘city of the senses’ rather than the intellect, as I often have written here. A few more days like this past Saturday will definitely be something to look forward to.
