This year the cool air came late, in a whoosh of cold from the north. Quite a change!
I was thinking about last fall in terms of seasonal timing, so thought I'd look back at posts from October, and realized that in mid-October last year, we'd just returned from 2 weeks in Vancouver, following 10 days in Kauai.
Interesting that FB hadn't been reminding me of those memories -- perhaps they had all been blog post links to FB, rather than direct posts....so not as favored....
Regardless, I was reminded of wonderful views and community markets in Vancouver, with that quick look back. Nice to read some of them, as one of my strong visual memories from that trip was the overpowering built space, full of skyscrapers, that today's Vancouver presents.

The extreme housing costs in Vancouver seem to be such a liability, too, even with easy access to walking paths and bike lanes, and spectacular water and mountains.
Here's an evening view of the trendy and pleasant riverside area coming up Cambie Bridge.
