All around the Vancouver Boat Harbor,  are several flower beds with all sorts of colorful varieties. I was there jsut as fall was hitting and many, like these sunflowers, were on their last leg.

I learned pretty quickly that wine and Canada DO go together while traveling in Canada. And after a great Saturday morning touring wineries with my friend Janice, we sat down at Treadwell’s Vineyard Bistro located at the Southbrook winery.

It’s a personal favorite activity of mine. I went biking while wine tasting in Mendoza, Argentina. In Spain, while filming our [...]
