Since arriving on the coast yesterday, we have:
- checked out and approved the OFKAR's abode
- consumed sushi
- walked down to the beach
- walked up and down hills
- found an open off-sale
- prepared a somewhat off-kilter but entirely yummy Thanksgiving meal of chicken wings, caesar salad and brussel sprouts at the hotel
- enticed the OKFAR into a sleepover
- bragged about Calgary culture to Dave at the front desk

So, yeah, I'd say this trip is off to a good start.

How is your Thanksgiving/Columbus Day weekend progressing?

Glad to hear the coast is treating you and the OFKAR well - consuming sushi and walking the beach is second nature here.

Looking forward to Seattle BTW only 4 more sleeps for me!

Sea ferry to Granville Island today, Matthew, which is another Vancouver must-do, followed by some visiting with peeps. Hard to believe that I have Seattle to look forward to immediately afterward. Goodness overload!

Argh! I can't belive I couldn't get out to the coast. Hub wanted to go this month but I have too many obligations this month to travel that far. I guess we will go in the spring. :(

I know fun will be had by all!

Do you mean I came this close to possibly meeting you, Rebelle? What a shame to have missed this chance. Perhaps next time...

Sounds like a lovely weekend!

Looking forward to seeing you tonight. I apologize in advance for the slightly messy flat.

3 more sleeps until the Fun House!

Your flat is lovely, Al, very warm and welcoming. Much like yourself, I guess.
Looks like we'll be hitting the Fun House just in time for the rain.
