Well this is my last night. I am certainly excited to head home and towards all of the things I have missed so much. I am also sad I am leaving because of all of the fun things I’ve done and seen. Now that I’ve seen all of this I wish I could actually spend some time in each place I’ve been to and relax and just chill out at each one. I guess this trip was a good overview and maybe a starter. I am most looking forward to: my own bed, playing with Holly, a place to call home, people, not spending money, and working. Yes I said working. I like my job and don’t feel as if I “go to work” on most days because it is rewarding for me. Plus, I hate being idle and not contributing to something. Today I thought would be less moving around and walking. I had intended that to be the case but there were two neighborhoods I wanted to visit and David, my host, suggested some places to stop and told me a good way to walk to them. I’m also unfortunately breaking my shoes in which isn’t the most pleasant experience. I visited Granville Island again this morning for the farmers market and grabbed breakfast there. Then I headed along the ocean seawall and went to Kitsilano Beach, or Kits Beach as they calll it here. It was quite beautiful. I didn’t take too many pictures though as I have some from across the harbour that were similar and I am kinda getting photo fatigue. Along the way they had Kits Beach for Dogs. That’s right, an off-leash dog park on the beach with a share of the ocean just for dogs. It was sooo cool. I so wished I had Holly with me so she could play along the beach. There was this one little white dog that decided it was big enough to play catch with this other huge dog. It was super cute. She would have fit right in. Then I hung out in the Kitsilano neighborhood area. There are two main roads and the shops along each of them runs for quite a ways. I had brunch at The Naam, a fruit crepe that was huge. I did some browsing of the shops before heading to the Commercial Drive neighborhood. This is an area with lots of art but also lots of Italian food. David told me that during soccer matches, World Cup in particular, the street can be crazy with people cheering. I had dinner at a pizza place he suggested there and it was really cheap. Then I went back to the Main Street neighborhood as I hadn’t seen that as much as I wanted. That are is also very artsy so I just browsed around. Now I’m going to go pack and relax one last time. I have a couple ideas to update this for a couple days once I’m back. You’ll have to check back for what those might be. I’m up early and on the train by 5 am to make sure I get through security in time for my 7 am flight. Peace.
