my (vancouver) life in iphone photos round 16

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Just in time for my much anticipated trip home, my camera has carked it (died), as they would say in Australia. Hopefully the camera shop will be able to fix it, but in the meantime I've been snapping away like crazy with my iphone.

Traveling here all alone was brutal, I wouldn't recommend it.

My first day home, I went for a long walk through Granville Island. All the tulips are blooming, the grass is so green and baby Canadian geese are everywhere!

My brother is happy I'm home (I think). I love how in Canada coffee comes with cream :)

I was so happy to be reunited with my dog, Scout! My mom holding a friend's little one.

How beautiful is my city?

Funny story: My dad, brother and I were walking along the beach when my dad noticed this boat washed up and said, "Oh, that looks familiar." We got closer and sure enough, it's our old sailboat! I can still hardly believe the coincidence.

I've been thinking a lot lately about home and how I feel like I have two. When I was leaving Sydney to come here I said that I was "going home," and when I talk about going back to Oz at the end of this trip I say that I'm "going home." So it would seem that when I am halfway over the Pacific Ocean, no matter which direction I'm going, I'm heading home. And I guess that's not such a bad thing.

p.s. don't forget that today is the last day to enter to win a $50 gift card from Shabby Apple! I'll be drawing the winner tomorrow...
