To support the ALM Rangers family > job > rangers mantra I decided to take today off (OOF), unplug from the digital universe and enjoy a minute part of beautiful Vancouver.

1. Starting at Cleveland Dam

The Cleveland dam and surrounding park is phenomenal. Wondered about the cracks in the dam wall, but was quickly distracted by the floating barrel … nature always finds a way of starting a new forest Smile

2. Exploring along Capilano river

The walk through the misty forest at the bottom of the dam wall … fortunately I forgot about the cracks by the time I got to the bottom … and along the Capilano river was eerie, beautiful and peaceful.

Brian, you should recognise this lunch, which I enjoyed it at the same spot we sat when you visited Vancouver Smile

To wrap up one day of “me time” in one word … PHENOMENAL!
