THE WEST END OF Vancouver seems more like a rainbow's end sometimes with its muggy mild weather, sparkling water views, historic homes, colorful flags and umbrellas and heavily treed streets nestled by English Bay.
The rainfall during my recent visit there with my husband did not diminish the natural beauty of the area.
Inukshuk stands tall beyond a tangle of branches still strung with Christmas lights.
MacMillan Space Centre in Vanier Park across the bay was veiled in a gentle mist. I recognized the Freezing Water #7 sculpture by Jun Ren in the foreground that I wrote about in an earlier post. It reminds me of a huge bird with crumpled outstretched wings.
Venice overlooking the canals.

Writing this post brought to mind a special song. Experience the joyful sound of Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole singing Somewhere Over The Rainbow.
