Summer Breeze, Make Me Feel Fine...


This is English Bay in Vancouver, just moments ago. Does it get any more beautiful than that?  This evening after work, I headed straight for the beach and had a hot dog and an ice cream cone for dinner. (That covers all the main food groups, doesn't it?  Protein, starch, vegs and dairy.  Come on, humour me ~~ I'm trying to convince myself.)

English Bay is a magical place, the jewel around which Vancouver is built.  I have swum in English Bay, I have sailed on it, and I have even rowed a row boat on it, and I never get tired of it, and it never ceases to amaze me with its beauty.

Of course, this being Vancouver, it will probably rain tomorrow but even in stormy weather, English Bay is wonderful.

Such a beautiful place! My brother and his wife were in Vancouver recently and said it was a highlight of their trip. Thanks for the word tour :)

Yes, that is quite the summer repast, Jo, and you should NOT feel the tiniest bit guilty for enjoying it. And the bay is quite lovely, too.

That sounds like a LOVELY evening. Hmmm - I might have to have a hotdog & ice cream for dinner myself tonight :)

Your dinner is almost as good as Bill Cosby's breakfast for his kids - eggs, milk and a couple of other ingredients all mixed together in a...chocolate cake!
