The solar eclipse this morning once again had me questioning all those people who post and say that Vancouver is cold, unfriendly, stuck-up and no one talks to them. We didn't have glasses but two friendly cheerful fellows who we didn't know from Adam let us take several looks through theirs. Then, walking back from the beach just after the apex we had no fewer than 4 other people offer up their glasses because they wanted to ensure everyone got to see. Unfriendly? Hardly. Maybe it's the posters of these ads who have resting bitch face and all the other things they accuse the awesome people of this city of having or doing!
Oh, and the shadows were amongst the coolest things caused by the eclipse...hundreds of moon shaped shadows caused by every tree!
