This week I got some GREAT pictures from my friend Paulette Heppner in British Columbia (BC).
That’s on the west coast of Canada – we also call it the left hand coast.
If I didn’t live in Catopia, BC would be high on my list of alternatives… except I hear it’s a long walk from Nova Scotia. (About 6000 km / 3700 miles)
Fasten your seat belt while we take a whirlwind tour of Vancouver in the spring!

I’ll let Paulette be your tour guide:
Cheer up, Stan fans, spring has spring on the wet coast and it’s coming your way soon!
Trade and Convention Centre, and the only raindrop in sight is the raindrop sculpture in the background.
Minion Mike verifies that the world really does revolve around cats.
White sails of the cruise ship centre.
Minion Mike has no fear of bears.
Olympic Cauldron, also known locally as four doobies and a fattie.
Vancouver harbour. Cranes are for loading ships.
Green roof of the new convention centre.
Coal harbour marina and residences.
Minion Mike visits Jimmy Pattison’s yacht. He briefly considers buying one himself, then remembers he doesn’t like water.
Minion Mike thinks this 1962 Jag might be more his style. After all, a Jaguar is a cat.
Minion Mike briefly considers career in architecture as he visits the classic art deco Marine Building.
What could be better to lift the spirits? Spring flowers and cherry blossoms.
Mosaic inlays in Gastown sidewalks.
Gastown steam clock. Time for lunch.
Cherry blossom time.
Burrard Street Bridge, Yaletown and Granville Island.
Minion Mike consults with an Important Spring Visitor regarding delivery methods.
What an incredible tour! I’m exhausted.

Wow! What beautiful pictures!! Do you really have cherry blossoms already? I saw one very tiny crocus in flower the other day here, before it started snowing again 😛
Thank you for that wonderful tour 🙂
Fabulous pics! I love Vanvouver (and minions … I love the minions too).
