Yesterday we saw a couple of eagle’s nests on our tour of Vancouver, but was a little mystified as to why they would set up residence in a city. Apparently it so they can sit on the light posts and pose for tourists when the sun comes out, as it did today (Friday). This was no ordinary posing either – this bird was there for at least half an hour, turning this way and that, showing off his (or her) best side. Though I had great difficulty in making my drawings look like an eagle, and not the lovechild of a parrot and an owl.
All in all, Vancouver in the rain is charming enough, but when the sun comes out it is quite lovely – what a good Friday for touristing. But be warned, I could very easily live here….
