Early May in Vancouver visiting family and friends, I have found the warmth and colours that are slowly coming to PEI after our long winter on the east coast. During my stay here I also visited the Vancouver Art Gallery to see the work of Takashi Murakami, called The Octopus Eats Its Own Leg. Mind-bending to say the least.
I’ve also been enjoying my brother Terry’s fine gourmet offerings, tasting culinary delights at a local craft fair with my sister-in-law Jodie, and watching niece Kira perform in Moby Dick the Musical at the Lord Byng High School. Kira played the part of Moby Dick, encased in a suitably decorated large white box….plus she provided live special effects and sang and danced with the chorus. A lively, colourful and complicated show pulled off beautifully by the huge cast.
Here are a few of the photos from my walks with Kaia, the smallest member of the family, as we wandered the cherry blossom petal-covered sidewalks, and through the magnificent flowers and trees of Queen Elizabeth Park.
