Still in Vancouver

The sun is shining! A break in the downpours. As much as I love the rain, a break now and then is nice.

Yup, we're still in Vancouver. Art's other daughter, Treena, is coming over tonight and we will have our Christmas with her and Sara & Kevin. Staying a couple of extra days has given both Art and I the opportunity to visit some of our friends. Alas, though, we can't visit them all.

So, to back up a little.....we arrived in Vancouver on New Year's Eve at Sara & Kevin's. Kevin's brother Darren and girlfriend Janet were there, so we had a lovely dinner and rang in the New Year together. Janet had a new digital camera (which is a thing of beauty, let me tell ya) and was practicing taking pictures. Here are some of them (I hope it's OK that I borrowed them). Sara and Kevin.....(I LOVE this picture)....Darren and Janet........Art and I.....And the dogs. Xena.....(I love this picture, also)....Brutis (Sara & Kevin's).Janet also took some artistic shots of Christmas decorations and things. She really has an incredible eye. I'd love to see what she comes up with once she's "gotten the hang" of that camera!

We had a really nice evening. And dinner was exquisite! Every time we have a meal like that with Sara and Kevin I learn something. That night it was wine matching. Each course has a different wine that is "matched" with that particular food. Who knew there was such a thing! Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not making fun. It's just that the class of drinker I'm used to doesn't make such distinctions.

PS...don't worry.....the non-drinkers in the crowd were sipping sparkling cranberry juice. No need to call any sponsors.
