Bridge to Infinity

On September 15th, I got together with two blogging buddies, jmb and liz, at Bridges Restaurant on Granville Island in Vancouver. If you missed the post I did on our outing, click here. We sat outside on the patio in the brilliant sun with stunning views of the Burrard Street Bridge and the yachts that were moored just off the deck. The sky was such a brilliant, cloud-free indigo that I just couldn't resist taking this shot. Yes, Vancouver does get rain in the winter but on days like this, I'd live nowhere else in the world.

Beautiful blue skies over BC AND the same over Ontario. I bet that's rare! The yellow umbrella is a wonderful contrast with the sky.
Happy Sky Watch ;-)

I love the contrast of the bright blue against the bright yellow, it shouts sunny bright day!

That yellow shows the blue off so well! But I like rain, too. I especially enjoyed the steady patter of the hard rains this summer on the roof of our office.

But when you get blue skies like that... wow!

The comic strip in my post goes like this:
- Does this dress makes me look fat?
- No!!! It isn't the dress that makes you look fat. It's is the extra kilos!
- Ahhhhhhgggghhhhhhhh!!!


My English isn't so good but I hope you understand!!
