Vancouver-A Quick Trip

Had a quickie trip up to Vancouver,  BC. Living in a small town, I ocassionally crave a big city fix.

Burrard Inslet hosts a port lined with giant Erector Set dinosaurs. I mean cranes. 

Granville St. For Schwarma before the rowdy night crowds descend. For me, trips up there mean eating interesting food.


The famed steam clock in Gastown. 

Its innards.

A tattered hotel sign. 

Lights everywhere. 

I’m not Irish. But I got a kick of the sign. 


Note the giant, puffy down jacket? 

Until the next city-fix-
