Early Morning at the Eagle’s Nest

It’s just after seven and I have showered in the silent lodge. I looked out from my balcony window at the pair of eagles perched on a tree overlooking the water. They ignored me as I tried to get a good picture, regretting my decision to leave the telephoto lens in Vancouver.

After a bit of my prowling around they gave me a few squaks of "Move on now, you have had your fun!"
Things are stirring now time to move.


The Eagle’s Nest

We were up early this morning and off through the rush hour traffic to catch the early ferry to Galiano island .
We made our way to the Eagle’s Nest where preparations for tomorrow’s wedding are underway.

East Van – This is not Edinburgh

This was our first full day in Vancouver. It’s nice to be back again. This afternoon we had a walk to the coffee shop on East Hastings, the Laughing Bean. It’s a busy street but pedestrians are well catered for with a crossing system that makes it easy even for old folks to cross.

I was reminded of the Canadian approach to saving the planet. Diesel buses are replaced by electric buses; trolley buses as we knew them.
No need to dig up then street. Only string the cables and we are off. This is a much simpler and cheaper solution. Edinburgh, are you listening?
