Daydream of the Week: Vancouver

Vancouver English Bay BeachAs the sun sets on 2013, the days of our lives… KIDDING! No cheese here, just a little travel moment: When I lived in NYC, one of my closest friends was from Vancouver, so I have been hearing wonderful things about it for more than a decade. The food, the people, the mild weather… I was so excited to finally take my first trip there! Even having heard so much about it, I was still surprised that there are beaches right in downtown. I landed in Vancouver already obsessed with the water, having taken the ferry to and from gorgeous Victoria. One of my favorite afternoons was spent at English Bay Beach, also called First Beach. We watched a spectacular sunset, along with many families who were outside, too, enjoying one of the last warm days of the year. I love when a place I expect to be so familiar comes up with lovely surprises.

Daydream of the Week: Water, Water, Everywhere

WaterI can’t wait to live near the ocean again, when I move to San Francisco this fall. A water baby Pisces who grew up mostly in Florida and moved to Vegas from Coco Beach, Costa Rica, I have always craved the ocean. Now, after three wonderful years in the desert of Las Vegas, the water fairies are calling me back. After an amazing trip to Seattle and a quick weekend in San Francisco, I am now up in Victoria. My favorite part of the island so far? Right… The water… My camera died right after taking my one obvious shot of nothing but water while traveling with my friend Ethan on the ferry from Vancouver to Victoria. Today, my friend Simone and I are headed back to the harbor for a day of sightseeing. I am so excited to spend the day on the water and want to scream from the rooftops that I will again be near the ocean.

 

I am moving to California!!
