There's nothing like walking to the gas station in your owl pajama pants to get candy on a Tuesday afternoon. Actually, I'm 99.9% positive that my over consumption of sugar this past week contributed to some kind of sugar induced coma that made me sleep like a rock on Tuesday night! Similarly, it's also quite fun to play tourist in your own city. I moved to Vancouver in September, but I have not exactly become familiar with the various neighborhoods and areas. I typically go to the same spots, the same shopping destinations and the same coffee shops when I want a pick-me-up. However, this week I had time to kill before school (and a whole Saturday free with B), so some adventuring was in order! From False Creek/Science world to Gastown, and lots of sweet treats in between, we also made our way to New Westminster and discovered an area with TONS of outlet shops. It's amazing what you can find when you actually LOOK (and all of you native Vancouverites are laughing, "ha ha I knew that already.")!
It looks as if I will be making my way to the island tomorrow morning! I am SO excited, seeing as the last time I tried to venture over in January I got to the ferry terminal expecting to catch the 1045 ferry only to have to drive back home because it wasn't sailing. Damn you, BC Ferries & your trickery. It has been over a month since I have seen any family (the last time being Christmas!), so it will be a refreshing break to kick back with the famjam. PLUS, I will see them on the weekend too when they come HERE! Hmm, this means I should do some dishes.
Hope you have a happy Monday!
