Vancouver is a beautiful city. Even under the rain. Which, during the winter, is often... But we get used to it; for example our Christmas reindeers become raindeers…. And life goes on…..
The cute little Robson Market, top of the hill on Robson Street:
One of the many small produce stores along Robson:
Another small produce store (products from Iran,
including superb dates and figs), just off Robson:
We also have many flower stores:
One of the "tourist shops":
Candy store called Rocky Mountain, with irresistible Halloween treats:
The normally very busy corner of Robson and Burrard:
There are always bikes parked near the Red Robin on
Robson. Even on a rainy day like today, there is one:
Rain or shine, the doors of the boutiques remain open
and inviting (this one is on Burrard, just off Robson):
This "taxi" belongs to the Joe Fortes restaurant,
on Thurlow (corner of Robson):
Pretty corner, Robson and Bute St:
Aren't those purple lights pretty?
A rainy autumn day can still be so romantic...
And the rain certainly does not stop Green Peace's volunteers (below). Mark, on the left, gave me an excellent summary of Green Peace's priorities in Canada.
This website would like to salute Vancouver-based animal rights and environmental activist Captain Paul Watson, one of the co-founders of Green Peace and Founder and President of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.
