I hope that lots of you are having an excellent Christmas; I am. Here’s an illustrated card featuring Vancouver Christmas visuals.
We took our visiting Prairie relatives for a waterfront Christmas-eve walk, and it struck me that putting Christmas lights on barbed-wire looks dystopian by day, but is probably pretty at night.
Just around the corner was a little nautical structure, and a dinghy in Christmas colors.
Then Christmas came, and here’s a bit of orgy-of-materialism hangover.
Christmas day had the only sun of the week so between presents and turkey we took a stroll in a local hilltop park. A couple of guys had set up with pails of soapy water and that sticks-and-twine rig so you can blow huge bubbles, twisting and sparkling in the summer sun, letting all the kid passers-by take a turn. That’s what I call Christmas spirit.
Nearby they were practicing Tai Chi.
and what with the sideways solstice sun through the patchy clouds, the city was one great big festive decoration.
Best of the season to you and yours!
