Lazy Sunday Swimming

Sweet Pool in Vancouver

Not much to report on here except the wedding was out of this world and I had an absolutely amazing time from start to finish. The wedding went off without a hitch and I’m thrilled for the newlyweds.

Woke up at a reasonable hour and after eating some disgusting McDonald’s went for a swim, hot tub and steam. The pool above was sick and I had the entire place to myself which is always great. Now I’m coordinating that fishing venture. The buddy I ‘m doing it with lives in Montreal and he’s blowing me away with the drawings. Originally I was going to pay him for some art work but it’s quickly morphed into more than that and now we’re doing this together. Works out well as both of us have totally different skill sets which are equally important to the implementation of the idea.

If I was still working, I’d be on a plane back home now. I’m glad that I’m not. Tomorrow I’m meeting up with some friends from High School then going to Victoria for a week or two to do some fishing and just enjoy some “lazy island days”. I will say that if I don’t get out of British Columbia soon, I may never want to leave. It’s hard to believe it’s part of Canada, totally different than the rest of the country which is great but not like this.

I just went out for some sushi (what a surprise!?) and took this photo of what I think is the Art Gallery but what do I know? I’m just a quasi tourist cruising around. The tall building behind is the Shangri-La, tallest building in Vancouver. In the not too distant future I think many buildings will be that tall or taller. The core of Vancouver isn’t that large so the only place to build is up and there is no shortage of people wishing to move here.

Vancouver Art Gallery - I think

Reading through some of these bloggeries is already reminding me of things, instead of the usual blur that trips turn into. I’m starting to realize that in the future I’ll be able to look back on these and from the snippets remember vividly many of the great times I’ve had and yet to have. These updates are like cue cards to jog the memory, pretty sweet.

Do I regret resigning and liquidating my life? No way.
