Rocksalting in Vancouver and Blue Orcharding in Victoria

Had a nice weekend in Vancouver, starting with a place in the Rocksalt reading which was part of the Main Street Literary Tour, in celebration of BC Book & Magazine week. We hung out in the Cafe Montmartre,

being hosted by Trevor Carolan

Had a little beer tasting on Saturday. My trio was porter, raspberry wheat beer and Rickard's White wheat beer (my favourite)

Hanging out on the fence.
