    Oh, to be in Vancouver right now! Not Just for the beer (tho’ I must admit that would be the main attraction here) but for the scenery. I’ve lived on the island, in some places so beautiful I could cry – though don’t because I want to keep my eyes clear and see everything. Friends living in Vancouver say they love it much for the same reasons.
    A world-class city AND a great beer fest! I’m drooling and missing B.C. now.

    (Have new blog. Will send link some time. Just back on line after a (forced) few week hiatus…)
