Sylvia Hotel, English Bay, Vancouver


I’ve recently spent a fabulous couple of weeks in Vancouver, on Vancouver Island and up in the interior of British Columbia. Visiting family was the whole purpose of the trip, but I managed to point the camera at a few things of interest.

This is the facade of the Sylvia Hotel, one of Vancouver’s heritage buildings. Cousin R and I dropped in for cocktails (nah, beer) while we were there.

A wee snippet from Dunfermline Abbey

I was in Fife for a course last week and managed to make a flying visit to the Abbey before it closed. It being Fife, the beggars took my money before telling me the place was closing in five minutes. Anyway, a quickly-snatched photo on the phone, no less, gives you an impression of the sheer quality of the Norman architecture here. I shall return.
