Vancouver, Yay!

I went to beautiful Vancouver for my birthday this year - to visit my youngest daughter, Angela and her husband, Blair. What a wonderful time I had! We did something special every day: Granville Island, yarn shopping, Whistler, Grouse Mountain, Stanley Park, Bowen Island and so much more.

Amidst the fun and visiting all those places I taught Ange and her friend, Maddie how to knit. While they were working on their scarves, I knit a robe for Ange's bear, Sparky. It's knit in all garter stitch in Bernat Handicrafter 100% cotton yarn.

This is a quick post just to show you the pictures (all taken with an iPhone because I wanted to keep it light).

After dark Vancouver. The pink and blue neon lights are on the cranes.

This is how big I would look standing next to a bear!

And here's the bear.

At the Whistler Resort. The white water is from all the minerals. The water in the rivers there is bright blue.
I'm told it's glacier water.

Sparky in his new robe. Isn't he handsome?!

Bowen Island beach where we had a picnic.

Opa, the 1,000 year old Douglas Fir. It would be worth your while
to Google "Opa"and read about her. Amazing! She has a aura.
We sat in awe beneath her for several minutes.

People leave gifts for Opa. This is a stone carving someone left.
