I decided, on short notice, to surprise my youngest daughter on her birthday. So I hopped on a flight to Vancouver, BC, Canada in early November. I booked an apartment in Yaletown with a great view. Despite the weather being typically rainy and cold, I still enjoyed my week there because I was able to spend some quality time with my daughter. I love Vancouver anytime of the year. Fall color was starting to appear in the city as evidenced by some photographs I took from the apartment.
