Sweet Mother of Mercy!
I have three days left in British Columbia. Three! Kind of intimidating, really. Still need to get out to Gavin's to drop off a couple of things and sort out some of the paintings that he and his family were kind enough to store for me. Still need to spend some time with Pete Chattaway before I leave. Still need to have dinner with my Mum and her husband. Still need to repack a couple of things for that matter, as I am not sure if my Dad is getting the canopy or not.
Things I really wanted to do but was unable to were things like spending some time on Mount Seymour and Cypress Bowl. I wanted to spend some time at Pitt Lake and walk around the Pitt Polder. I wanted to get to Siwash Rock and some of the great secluded beach areas around Vancouver. Then I wanted to eat at Gusto di Quattro. I wanted to eat dim sum at the Flamingo and I wanted quality sushi. Always the holidays I guess.
In three days I am off to Saskatoon. Some people seem to think it will be about slacking for the next couple of weeks. Given that I never get holidays, that would be tempting. But I need to find a place to live, get a job, phone service. Apparently, vacancy rates around Saskatoon are sitting at 0.6%. That's according to the University of Saskatchewan's Student Association. Judging by the adds it seems to be slim pickin's around town, but Geo seems to feel that it isn't quite as bad as it looks.
Whatever, things will work out in some way or the other.
