Our first visitor

The rose between two thorns, Yvette, David and me on our way up to the peak of Grouse Mountain, getting snapped by a friendly passerby.

Yvette on Grouse Mountain with Mt Baker, just visible in the background.
David and Yvette at the very top of Grouse, enjoying the fantastic views across the city.
At lunch in Horseshoe Bay with Tracy Freame, a couple skillets of prawns and a few bellinis.
Enjoying a proper Canadian breakfast - eggs, bacon, pancakes with maple syrup and fresh fruit. (ps Mum & Dad thanks again for the caffetiere you can see it's being put to good use!)

Yvette Flynn was our first visitor to the new house.

Arriving less than a week after we moved in she saw the house in its original format (something we hope not too many more of our visitors will do !). As a result of the busy time for us she saw plenty of Canadian Tire (like a Homebase), London Drugs (like a huge Boots) and Real Canadian Superstore (does what it says on the tin). She also mucked in and helped get the decorating started.

We did manage to get a couple of 'holiday' days with her, going up Grouse Mountain, seeing the touristy aspects of Lower Lonsdale waterfront, downtown by night and a lovely lunch with Tracy Freame at The Boathouse in Horseshoe Bay.

Thanks Yvette for all your help, and we promise next time you come that we'll be perfect hosts and it'll all be 'holiday'.
