A golden afternoon here, some of it captured photographically by defeating the wiles of my camera-nemesis. The first in the collection below is, I claim, the single canonical, definitive picture of Spring in Canada. A couple of 'em are well worth the click to enlarge.

Then, bicycling home (them's my wheels behind the blocks), I encountered some artifacts not normally seen outside of cartoons.

Then, this being the last night of a visit by my Mom, she took us out for dinner at Kibune Sushi, a fine establishment not far from Kitsilano Beach.

As we were walking out, Goldie Hawn (currently a Vancouver resident) came strolling in, and as pop-cultural icons go, she's a cheerful one, and thus fit well with the course of the afternon. From the restaurant, of course, to the beach.

The kid threw stones in the water and we found a beachfront bench because with the hockey playoff game on, the beach was thinly populated. Now I have often slimed this camera in this space, so it was without much hope that I pointed it at the sunset. But it did OK. Doesn't mean that I'm not gonna replace it.
