We drove up to Vancouver today. We’ll be here until Tuesday. It’s my birthday tomorrow and I have two days of vacation that I have to use by the end of March or lose them, so why not.
I always like Vancouver. It’s unequivocally a major city. Vancouver feels more urban than Seattle, where people have only been moving into high-density downtown condos and apartments for a few years.
We’re staying at the Sunset Inn and Suites in the West End. We stayed here before. It’s relatively cheap, clean, and centrally located. No particular charm either.
Tomorrow, we see my great-uncle Dick and his wife Margaret. They’re both 92 and about to move into a retirement center. We’ll have a nice dinner in the evening for my birthday.
