Working Sunsets

My workplace is never the same. The last three days, fabulous parties transpired on a highrise rooftop in the downtown business district, heritage farm along the dyke in Richmond, and tonight a BBQ at the Kitsilano Yacht Club. Summer takes parties outside – pretty easy to take when caught in the spell of Vancouver sunsets. Ponder the view from my “office”.

Polar Bear Swim 2015

2015 arrived with outstanding brilliance, Vancouver’s fourth straight day of clear skies. Winter sunshine = “Arctic High”, a strong ridge of arctic air holding Pacific storms at bay. Afternoon temperatures just above freezing didn’t stop an estimated 15-18 thousand people from charging boldly into 3 C/47 F waters of English Bay.
