Wimbledon, Shakespeare and other delights.

An early start here, tuning in over breakfast to the live commentary on our Wimbledon app, following Andy Murray’s battle in the final of Wimbledon. Wow!! He did it!!! 77 years since the last British winner.

Then we drive into downtown Vancouver, the beautiful city surrounded by water and mountains.

We have tickets for Bard on the Beach, Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. A very entertaining performance, with great music and a lot of fun.
