I’m headed off to the West Coast tomorrow for a few days of meetings. It should be really interesting – we’re going to a couple of galleries, the Museum of Anthropology, a contemporary dance performance, and the opening of the Vancouver Writer’s Festival. I think we’re also going to check out a few notable restaurants. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it.
I really love Victoria and Vancouver, so I’m pretty excited about the trip. If money were no object, then either of those cities would be at the top of my list of places to live. Granted, I’ve only been there a few times, and on a couple of visits I was lugging around a 60 piece orchestra, so my perception of what life is like there may be differ from reality. Still, it’s hard to beat mountains, trees, and water.
I have been spoiled with unnaturally nice weather on my previous visits – not this time. I just checked the forecast, and my stay in Vancouver looks like this:
Monday: 13C, 80% chance of showers
Tuesday: 13C, 90% chance of showers
Wednesday: 13C, 80% chance of showers
Thursday: 13C, 100% chance of showers, rain heavy at times
So, if you happen to see me on Wreck Beach this week, please keep the weather in mind when judging my, well, you know…
