The weather has been pretty sweltering here so I’ve been keeping in the shade as much as possible. I spent much of the last week on Bowen Island, so have some random pics of the scenery out there:

This week seems to have gone particularly fast, given that there was the build-up to Easter and a three-day weekend (I had to work Monday alas). I spent the week mainly at work and trying in vain to catch up with all my emails – there is seriously not enough time but I will get to everyone eventually, promise!
The bulk of my weekend was spent on Bowen Island with my family again, where I had a great time, despite the brief interruption to the electricity across the island due to a nasty storm and trees falling on power lines. But we were pretty quickly brought back into the 21st century.
There hasn’t been too much tourist-like activity occurring this week, though there has been a steady stream of resume sending out and craiglist browsing for housing. I’ve had some emails and call backs today about various things I have in the pipeline so it does feel like everything is starting to come together. For the moment I’m still in the hostel and right now sitting in the lounge area typing this, as the wifi in my room keeps dropping out appallingly.
I did go on a pretty brief trip to Kitsilano and the beach there, which you can see in the pictures below, but I definitely need to go back there and do some exploring, especially of the bookstores I hear are there. Though I’ve been good, I haven’t bought a single book yet! I still have two books with me to read though; we’ll see how long my willpower continues once I’ve finished them…
