A post about rain. I don’t want to do a post about rain. Recently Darren Barefoot’s blog had an anniversary [db], he listed off a bunch of blogs and their ‘first posts’ to the world. Looking back, mine is about rain and silly ideas [604], although I’m not sure that was my first post – […]

There are some interesting sights to see in Stanley Park aside from the park itself. There are so many things to take pictures of, explore, run around, walk under and gaze at in awe. Anything from totem poles to Canadian geese – but when it comes to the 9 o’clock gun you won’t see many […]
