Holiday Greetings from inside the Bloedel Conservatory.

Last Friday my daughter and I went for a walkabout, and lunch, with a dear friend of ours to one of our favourite spots in Vancouver: Queen Elizabeth Park.

We went in and took a turn around the Bloedel Conservatory which has been beautifully decorated for this holiday season. 

Without further is a photo montage of our walk inside.

Our final stop, Seasons in the Park Restaurant.

I hope you enjoyed your outing at the Bloedel Conservatory...and to think, our city council had planned on closing down this most beloved attraction. Only the hue and cry of many of Vancouver’s residents spared it from such a fate.

And...if per chance you should be standing in the viewing area, in front of the Conservatory and restaurant, with your gaze toward the mountains, you would soon realize you were seeing the view which makes up my Header and Background photo! (subject to change yet again!)

Cheers, Jenny

Dashing through the snow Old Man Winter nips at our heels.

It’s that time of year again, when Old Man Winter dusts the local mountains and chills the air.

Today, as I write this post, the beautiful North Shore mountain range is cloaked in a blanket of rain laden clouds. It is a cold, damp, overcast day...typical of this time of year.

Of course up in those higher elevations the rain is falling as snow and on the next sunny day this is what you will see.

My Header and Background are derived from this photo, taken last year on a walk about I took over to Queen Elizabeth Park, where the view, on a sunny day, is spectacular.

Enjoy the links within this post they will take you on a little visual walk about around beautiful Vancouver, BC.
