It seems like it has been forever since Simon and I had a day off together, so it was extra special to spend St. Patricks day wondering around Yaletown with him.
We checked out the engine thats sitting in the (very cool) roundhouse building. Seriously, look at that grin on Simon’s face. I worry that the next thing I know we will be heading to every railway museum he can find! I’m just kidding!
The engine pulled the first transcontinental train linking the east and west coasts of Canada into Vancouver in May of 1887. There are also some great photos of Vancouver on the walls.
I then convinced Simon that we should drop into the life drawing session that was going on in conjunction with the
Vancouver International Dance Festival
(its happening at noon everyday, all week, for anyone that’s interested). Both of us are pretty awful at drawing, but that didn’t stop it from being loads of fun. And I think we both got a little better by our last drawing… ok so maybe only a tiny bit better, but that counts!.
