…”Micro-lofts: are they here to stay?”…”An early start for strawberry blueberry lovers in BC”…”Spot prawn season opens in BC with a great haul”…
A proposed 30 storey condo tower at Vancouver’s Davie & Hornby Streets that will see 294 micro-loft units all under 398 square feet means that they must be rental units and not for sale under a Vancouver by-law.
Developers are taking the view that for now, a whole segment of potential real estate buyers are being kept away from home ownership.
Interesting to note that “Sam” pictured here who has lived in his 248 sq. ft. Gastown rental unit for two years at the Burns Block says he’s “more than comfortable.”
Cheers to less is more, changing demographics & young people yearning for vibrant lives in the city over the ‘burbs’!!
It’s off to an early start for strawberry and blueberry lovers it seems! June 1st & June 20th respectively, they’ll be ready for picking they say, two weeks earlier than normal!
Cheers to dig out your pails & baskets before the ‘pickins’ are slim!….
Strawberry shortcake! Blueberry pie! Enjoy the fruits of the season!
By all reports, the 1st day haul from Howe Sound of spot prawns was “terrific”.
That bodes well for the Chef Society of BC’s Spot Prawn Festival that takes place this weekend! False Creek FIsherman’s Wharf Sunday May 17th sings–enjoy the prawn boil!
Whatever’s up for your Friday and Victoria Day long weekend, cheers to an attitude of gratitude for all life’s abundances & in everything you see & do may you be smiling–we are so amused!!!
