Hi everyone! Sorry we haven't checked in for a bit, but we're running about the town, having fun. We're having a lazy morning this morning, then off to Granville Island. I wanted to send a little update with some pictures before we go.
Much appreciation to all,
A Love Affair Through Glass
One week ago, my bags were packed and I was on my way,
Ten days, I thought would surely be a rather lengthy stay;
But here I am, a week’s gone by, and how the days have flown,
It’s gone much faster than I could imagine, truth be known.
With Sharon, as my hostess, and a warm and caring friend,
It’s hard to think in three short days, this trip will somehow end;
On Wednesday, we saw Bowen Island, via Horseshoe Bay,
We rode the ferries back and forth to while away the day.
On Thursday, we saw Stanley Park, oh what a sight to see …
Aquariums and animals to set my spirit free!
We saw the otters, dolphins, whales, some bugs, a croc or two,
A hawk, some eels, and snakes, a sloth, and spiders … just a few.
I have to say, the highlight though, was such a silly fish,
He had a thing for Sharon … thought she was a sexy dish!
The second that she walked up to the window and looked in,
He darted ‘tward her there and then, and I saw Sharon grin.
I swear it was the cutest sight, it really was a gas!
This fish was blowing kisses right at Sharon, through the glass!
He followed her no matter where she moved, he’d found his girl,
When Sharon moved, he’d twist his head and follow in a swirl.
He puckered up, she leaned right in, and gave him kisses too,
It didn’t matter where she went, he followed her … it’s true!
I swear he was in love with her, it really was a sight,
I laughed until I cried - I think we could have stayed all night!
Some people stopped to watch the show, amazed by what they saw,
No kidding, it was quite the thing, they looked at her in awe!
See, Sharon has charisma, not like anyone I know,
It doesn’t matter who or what … life’s drawn toward her glow!
This love affair was something else, oh yes, it was, you bet!
I took a dozen pictures, so I never would forget!
Alas, she broke his heart, for it was time to move away,
He swam behind her sadly - tried to tempt his love to stay.
He blew her kisses, waved his fins, in sadness and in woe,
He hovered there behind the glass, but it was time to go;
He had a thing for Sharon – my, he was a cutie pie,
I think if fish could cry, he did … when Sharon said goodbye!
