We are so appreciative of Lori and Wayne for the use of their home while they are in their summer abode on Shuswap Lake. Today was about late up, easy breakfast, washing and ironing, relaxing and a little planning. At 5 we caught the bus for Jane to attend a dinner appointment with Tina, a special person and ex-student from Melville, who now is into her 3rd
year of Bachelor of Science majoring in Bio-Chemistry at UBC, while I continued on to the city and the waterfront, stopping at Steamworks, again, for a bite to eat.
Being in the inner, downtown section of the city, Georgia St, Granville St plus Water St and Cordova St, we were very sad to see the dirtiness of the street paths and benches and bus stops. Very different indeed to ’86. Busy, extremely. Today a large article was publish saying that Vancouver is now the number one city in the world for least housing affordability, overtaking LA. It is virtually eliminating the middle class from purchasing a home.
