Late Addition @ 10:08 a.m. cst - Thank you Linda Treleaven for giving me the correct name of the water, it is False Creek, not the Columbia River as I had thought. And thanks too to Jerry Barton for the correct name. It's a paddle board. How cool to have learned two new things today! I really appreciate the information! Here's wishing Linda and Jerry (and all SmugMuggers) a great day.
As we were walking around the Granville Island area of Vancouver, BC we really enjoyed all the shops, restaurants, people-watching opportunities, the boats, the water, the pretty skyline of Vancover and the tranquility of the spot.. We were having a glass of tea on one of the restaurant patios when I spotted this loan gentleman leisurely paddling down the Lost Creek (I called it the Columbia River in my original post). I'm not sure what type of item he's kneeling on, but it looked a bit like a flat surfboard. Thanks to Jerry Barton who told me this is called a Paddle Board
I still hope SM gets their act together so that everyone's DPC photos with comments show up in the Daily Most Popular today and into the future . My comment is not unChristlike as one Smugmugger suggested yesterday for me to wish for fairness and for photos with comments to show up in the Daily Most Popular group. I did say photos with a ton of comments, but today in the new SM - a ton of comments is as small as one, particularly when you see photos showing up with zero comments. I want everyone's photos to be easily seen by the those that visit Smugmug.
"I have lived pain, and my life can tell: I only deepen the wound of the world when I neglect to give thanks for the heavy perfume of wild roses in early July and the song of crickets on summer humid nights and the rivers that run and the stars that rise and the rain that falls and all the good things that a good God gives." ~ Ann Voskamp
Have a peaceful and thankful day today my friends. Thank you for your comments and critiques.
