Earlier this week I was in Kerrisdale visiting old haunts like Hill's, where I buy a pair of pants every year or so. Parking was hard to find on this day, so I parked on East Boulevard, across the street from my old high school, Point Grey Secondary, and walked the four blocks from there.
The picture up top is a bush of ripened salmonberries. Behind it, what is going up at the site of the recently-demoished Leigh Block (southwest corner of 37th and West Boulevard), where, as a teenager, I had a friend I would visit who sold grass and told stories.
