my plan for the day was to hit the downtown.. again. i geared up, walked a block or two, and realized this was the nicest winter day i have ever spent in vancouver. so who needs the crowds? i went back home, put on the shorts, grabbed a pop, and spent the afternoon at the beach/ one block from my happy home / at english bay. oh... and i had my camera with me as well (would like to leave that at home more often).
