Don’t you agree that all of us should – at least occasionally – play tourist in our own “neighbourhood”??
With both the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains right at our doorstep, Vancouver routinely makes the list as one of the most beautiful cities in the world…and Robin and I feel very fortunate to actually live in a place that’s considered a prime vacation destination for people from around the globe.
Somehow, though, it’s easy to take for granted the beauty and history that most of us, no matter where we live, can find a mere stone’s throw from home. So my hubby and I have made it our summer project this year to remedy that…and we’re taking the Solstice out every weekend for a Sunday (or Saturday!) drive to rediscover our city and its surroundings.
This afternoon our roadtrip led us to the Westminster Abbey in Mission…albeit after it was officially closed to visitors for the evening. Oops!! But the Benedictine Monks that reside there didn’t seem to mind as we quietly strolled the beautiful grounds and snapped some photos for the blog; I guess my outfit must have passed their dress code!! 😌
