Strathcona is indeed a charming neighbourhood. It's a historic neighbourhood in East Vancouver that borders downtown's China Town and the industrial side of Clark Drive (near my studio). Many of the older homes have been renovated in recent years, causing the price of real estate in this area to really jump. Here are just a few photos that I took while I walked to Gailan's studio sale the other day from my studio. I loved how the Robin just sat there while I tried to take photos of it, getting as close as possible.
Hope your day is going well! I'll be loading a kiln and packing up for my set up for the One of a Kind Show tomorrow. It's almost show-time!
