Highschool Sweetheart Reunion

Where does the time go?

My brother Dave and I recently had the opportunity to visit with our highschool sweethearts.  Had the most fun strolling down memory lane.  After much talk about he said she said, we were all able to get some answers to much lingering questions.  Funny how our young brains all digest happenings differently

The last time the 4 of us had dinner together was over 30 years ago when Dave moved back to BC to attend post secondary studies.  He saved his money and brought Maria out for a 1 week visit.  Cheeky bugger had to tell her Dad she was off to babysit for a week, very traditional Italian upbringing, NO BOYS

The 4 of us went to 1066 a very fine restaurant in Vancouver at that time, sadly it does not exist anymore.  Rob worked there and would take me once in awhile

Maria was on a whirlwind vacation in Alaska and BC recently so was in our neck of the woods,
we were so happy to see her again. Like old times and we picked up right where we left off

Some before and afters of us all for your enjoyment

Before .....

I would be 16 here and Rob 18.  This was the very day I told Rob my parents had just informed me they were moving back to Ontario.  He was of course freaking as I was unsure if I would stay behind

You have to click on this link to see the Dave and Maria photos as they are a .pdf file so won't display

Here is one I could upload, Maria on the Capilano Suspension Bridge in North Vancouver.  Not far from our house.  Brave little bean, I've been told she didn't ACTUALLY make it across on this visit, afraid of heights?  I thought originally it was Lynn Canyon Bridge, just a stones throw away but Maria reminded not.  Wow, can we get this bridge rocking.  For some, a thing of nightmares

We decided to go to the Top of Vancouver.  Really a must for visitors to Vancouver.  You might not be able to see all of the city but your eyes can take it in with the most spectacular views from the revolving restaurant.  Fun ride up the glass elevator as well.

When Mom and Dad and I came to BC to buy a house prior to moving from Ontario, they took me here and it made a very lasting impression, spectacular!
