Day 0

The day before Day 1 must be Day 0. The day we pack. The day we clean out the frig and pay bills. The day we give the husband a big kiss and the keys to our car (he already has the keys to our heart). The day we strap on the money belt, grab the passport and head for the ferry. The evening we arrive at the airport with only one more night to go. Tomorrow- Asia (well day after tomorrow if you count the dateline – so confusing – never mind).

Peaceful Protest

Sunday Morning on Robson Street

So I am in Vancouver this weekend to attend the Bead Show…. definitely the place to go if you want to make beautiful jewelery for yourself and friends.

Anyway, I was walking to the show along Robson Street and suddenly I see blocks of motorcycles parked on the street.   HMMMM.. a biker rally in downtown Vancouver on Sunday morning???

Not exactly.. instead, a GREAT way to conduct a peaceful protest.. apparently the city council had decided to begin ticketing motorcycles parked more than one to a metered parking place.  Well, this might SEEM to be “fair”, it actually makes car drivers looking for spots ANGRY and is not the best use of space.  So, several clubs got together and picked a time of low traffic to take every space on the main shopping street of downtown Vancouver.

I certainly HOPE they got their point across.
