Another get-out-of-the-house-before-the-walls-talk-back excursion earlier this week took me back to North Vancouver. I like how the cargo ship appears to be perfectly centered between the Vancouver and North Vancouver shorelines. Advertisements

I was taking a walk in East Vancouver last week, wandering with no particular destination in mind, when a mermaid swam up to me.
