An expat in Vancouver: Spring, finally

An April morning from Kitsilano Beach

We’ve had a spate of good weather and our moods have lifted. There are suggestions floating on Twitter and Facebook on where to go to enjoy the sun, but my favorite will always be Kits Beach. Plus there is the dog beach just below.

My favorite leisure advisor for the area is 604Pulse, and this week I took to heart the suggestions for local Japanese gardens by visiting the Nitobe at UBC.

It is small, but lovely. The sun was strong enough to be warm on our backs on the bridge spanning the little lake. In another month the flowers will be blooming and the trees will be lush, and we’ll be back.

Meanwhile, cherry and plum blossoms were in full splendor the past two weeks and are just now shedding their petals.
