Seems the neighbourhood is protected from invading pirates at least, as evidenced by this small canon on the back deck of someone's seaside home at the bottom of the street.
But here's my real parting shot for this particular trip:
The view this evening from the back porch of my mother's house.
In a few hours I'll be heading out to the Vancouver airport
to catch a plane back to the east coast.
I've lost track of how many times I've said this goodbye;
but it never seems to get any easier.
See you from the other side!
