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 atย 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.

  2. What an awesome capture! Wish you could send this pic to that family!!

  3. That’s a beautiful photo, Abby. I really have to get to Vancouver one of these years. I missed going the year that TBEX was held there. But I’d probably rather go when I can have all my time to myself anyway.

  4. Vancouver seems to the place to be. I would love to be there right now. Or at least to get there in the near future.

  5. Yes, you would love it! I definitely want to go back soon. Victoria was also stunning.

  6. Abby, you’ve written very kindly of my hometown. It’s easy to become jaded with that view, and more importantly, jaded by the simple physical access everybody has to that view. The hilarious part? That’s not even the best view. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks, Abby!

  7. I had a blast there! They told me I had magic weather lol. Next time, I will hit you up for that view!

  8. You’ve got yourself a deal, Abby! ๐Ÿ™‚ To whet your appetite for yet another decent example of a view:

  9. Beautiful photo! It is such a lovely spot in Vancouver.

  10. We had beautiful weather, too!

  11. Gorgeous shot! I’ve been to other parts of Canada, but not Vancouver. Yet. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s definitely on my list, especially because I really want to visit the Great Bear Rainforest!

  12. Vancouver had somehow alluded me, too! Victoria, which is nearby, was gorgeous.
