a typical tropical Vancouver new year

  • Jan 1, 2014 · 7:00 AM

with beautiful and nice weather predicted for the days around new years I figure it would be a good time to let my many friends around Canada, North America and the world know how rough we have it here in Lotusland. I am going to photo document a typical new years day of activity for a resident of this part of the world.

The day;
- will start with a ski and snowshoe down from the peak of Mt Seymour,
- will include a brief photo shoot appearance on a golf course,
- and of course the mid-day swim at Rocky Point.
- Then after a quick warm-up and perhaps a drink on a patio,
- maybe a short bike ride in the park at Town Center or Inlet park,
- and then a BBQ in the back yard at home.

I will then forward details of my typical January day to my friends in Toronto (if they have power and their computers are not frozen in blocks of ice), the US Midwest, and abroad.

    wow! what a great way to spend new years! Next year we need to add rock climbing and kayaking instead of golf and tennis. : )

    the latest weather forecast looks great! A mix of sun and cloud new years day... and a fairly warm 7C.

    There's some palm trees at the Aquatic ctr on Pinetree. You'd have to bring your own chair and drink... 8-)

    I believe that done properly this will require proper attire (shorts and sun hats) for the golf course and sunglasses for the patio. I know a few downtown or on the north shore but which pub/restaurant patios in the tri-cities have palms?
