A visit to Vancouver

Finally, finally feeling somewhat better after 8 weeks!!! of a viral respiratory illness.

We took ourselves off to West Vancouver on Wednesday, and went out for a joint early birthday celebration dinner. The next day into Vancouver for lunch with friends, then visiting with our host's other visitors in the afternoon, before I joined my book club group on Thursday evening.

All lots of fun and very social. Sadly I was wiped out and coughing again when we woke this morning, Friday, to get the early ferry. Have been napping and taking it very quietly since we got home.

A birthday cake for Julie / Alice / Jean.

Julie and Jack.

Alice and the cake.

A great wine that Devorah found at the local liquor store.
