The month of August has always been a special one for me. For one thing, I was born in August! (No gifts, please.) And, it’s been the month Susan and I have reserved for what generally as been a splendid vacation.
August of 2014 was no exception, as our travels took us to Vancouver, British Columbia. This gem of a city in the Pacific Northwest was named by The Economist magazine as the third most liveable city in the world after Melbourne and Vienna. (Note: Must get to Melbourne and Vienna soon.)
During our eight days staying at an awesome rental apartment in the Coal Harbour (note “Canadian” spelling) we did feel that we were living — not just staying — in a very special place. For one thing, the weather was ideal — sunny and 80 degrees (that’s 27 degrees Celsius) — and there are world-class attractions in close proximity. But overall, we found cool things to do just strolling the parks, neighborhoods and along the Seawall.
In this first installment, I’ll share some visual memories of our time in Vancouver. It will be followed with some thoughts. But before we get to the images below, a shout out to the people of Vancouver: This public relations pro thinks you’ve built positive awareness for your city the best way possible: By being friendly, polite and welcoming.
There are more image from our Vancouver Vacation on my Facebook page. Want more “travelogues” from The PRDude? Here are some posts to consider.
