Today was the last of my birthday celebrations. Today’s celebration was also for Doug’s May 16th birthday but I know he will have more.
We travelled into Vancouver on the brand new Port Mann Bridge. We really don’t have a choice but this is a toll bridge. $3.00 each way.
This bridge has been in the works for four years and although the bridge itself is finished, there is still a lot to do including taking down the old bridge which sits right beside it. There are five lanes each way. It is the widest bridge in the world and second longest cable-stayed bridge in North America.
Daughter Nicole and her children Nico 16, and Jakob 11 prepared a wonderful lunch. They are vegetarian and we are never disappointed. Nico had made a unique salad; several types of lettuce, pears, candied pecans and gorgonzola cheese. Yummy.
A vegetarian shepherd’s pie was followed by the exquisite chocolate cake.
My gift? I have been looking everywhere for one of these.
Now I can bake without power! I also received wonderful chai tea and Doug got this most useful book.
Spoiled aren’t we?
