As Vancouverites gear up for the final long weekend of summer–Labour Day weekend, there’s much of BC that beckons for getaways!

Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, Tofino, Whistler, the Okanagan-wine country!, the Kootenays, the Cariboo, the Sunshine coast, even fly-in only resorts!

For others, a ‘staycation’ can mean a traditional Labour Day weekend visit to the PNE-Pacific National Exhibition or sharing Stanley Park with many others…

Local media today mentions that not only a small contingent of people, but cougars, coyotes, great blue herons, eastern grey squirrels, bald eagles & beavers, cougars & mute swans all call the park home!

What might you see this weekend, deciding it’s a ‘walk-in-the-park’ kinda day??!

Recently, I was startled by a huge wing-spanned owl to which a friend exclaimed “what a hoot!”…

Whatever your’re up to for this last gasp of summer 2014…enjoy some of the fruits of your labour, safe travels wherever you may go, & cheers in life’s routines at home sweet home!

Every house where love abides
And friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home sweet home
For there the heart can rest.

~Henry Van Dyke
