visiting Vancouver

Had a great chance to unwind after the defense and visit Vancouver. I was invited to talk at the VanBug seminar series and got to meet with a lot of great people.

I also got to visit with some friends there and see downtown and Vancouver Island (where it seemed to rain less). Much fun was had, but much more to see.

Jim and Becky generously hosted me for a few days down in White Rock and showed me around during Easter weekend, including a trip to Vancouver Island.

Becky also convinced us to go to Butchart Gardens to see flowers and stuff, we protested but probably too loudly… It WAS fun so am glad we got to go.
