Back in Jamaica yesterday after a week spent in Canada, celebrating my father's milestone birthday. It included lots and lots of family time, with a short layover in Toronto to see friends and my pseudo-families there. I spent a lot of time being cold and wet and am exceedingly glad to be warm again!
|Me chilly as usual - in front of Burrard Bridge in Vancouver - we were having the obligatory Granville Island tour.|
|Downtown Vancouver - it's not always that grey, but mostly...|
|My lunch from Granville Public Market|
|My sister, Erika, who took many of the pictures on this blog, including shots 1, 2, and 4 above.|
My Dad bought himself a birthday present of a new motorcycle, which has just a little "omff". Both my parents ride and enjoy touring around the lower mainland, Vancouver Island, and even down to Arizona and back. However, this bike is apparently just for trips to the coffee shop!
|Apparently I can't use the crop function properly in my photo editor, but you get the idea...|
|My Mom was in on the surprise, but even she wasn't sure if he had suspected anything until this moment.|
|The party had a 60s theme, so my aunts all wore matching embroidered shirts that my Grandmother had made them way back when.|
|Can you feel the heat? Good times were had by all.|
|Boats at Deep Cove|
|Donuts at Deep Cove - no, I didn't eat them all by myself!|
Lovely to see so many of you, friends and family! Do come visit if you get a chance...
