Quiet snowy Christmas coast

Always a surprise on the wet west coast, white covers make us take notice! Two beautiful December snowfalls in the city and mountaintops slowed Christmas shoppers a bit this season, yet in closing, this month has failed to meet the wished-for white promise for all three local ski resorts by the sea.

At the seaside, mum and dad mallard cruise for goodies in the shallows, while over in the park you’reĀ  invited to check out (un)warmed benches ……decorated for the holiday season.

December Gold & Night Lights

‘December Gold’ captures a tug returning to False Creek moorage in downtown Vancouver; with a steelĀ  sculpture on shore as backdrop, this boat looks to have reindeer antlers on the bridge.
