Yesterday, after what felt like weeks of rain, it was surprisingly sunny and warm, and I was stuck inside all day (my only outing, to the dentist). Today, I had a meeting in English Bay, where I was hoping to linger, walk around and enjoy the scenery, and it was raining again. To make things worse, I sat on a wet bus seat on the way there, and had a cold, damp bum the whole time I was out. But I’m not really complaining (at least not too much). It takes more than rain to ruin an outing to English Bay. A tall soy hot chocolate and an ocean-view chair in Starbucks also goes a long way to assuaging the situation (as well as providing the opportunity to jot down a haiku without getting wet).
Fall in Vancouver
gray sky and rain, depressing
if not for tree light
