This avatar will be done in two parts, today. ;)

Part One is the annual Italian Day on our main shopping street, Commercial Drive.
Hence, "On The Drive" The city's nickname for it, truth! We live two blocks
away from it, just enough distance when this street becomes Car Free at noon,
and stays that way until 8 pm PST.

The area is a looney bin of cars trying to find parking, and a pizza place (no reservations taken)
across from us, that attracts CROWDS of families and everybody else. Very noisy, with cigarette butts, too.

And we keep our cat Stella, indoors for the day. Too many people out to freak her out, and a lot of them
walking their dogs too, though all are on leashes. But we play it safe with her. :wink:

And then, we move on to Part Two of today...

Playland in Vancouver is now open daily!
Though Mon-Friday it's only 10am to 3pm.
Not a lot of time there. But a lot of groups and
organization send groups/MOBS of kids to the park
during those time periods. It's very very noisy at times.

So, be forewarned if you visit on a week day. :wink:

An advertisement for my newest car... which is the exact model as my old car, but more recent.

2018 Subaru WRX/STI. Because I'm too stupid not to drive a track car as my daily driver, despite typically driving like a 90 year old man.

It's been a while since I explained my "regular" avatar...

It's a shot of the Bayside Station, for the Tokyo Disney Monorail system, that encircles the
Tokyo Disney Resort property. This station is nearly opposite a fave hotel of ours, and TPR's...
...the Tokyo Bay Hilton. Awesome hotel!

But....maybe not till after 2022, perhaps? ;) Then, everything (for now) will be finished (by then).

My screen name is Canobie Coaster, so it's only fitting I'd have a coaster from Canobie Lake Park as my avatar. So I picked Untamed and am too lazy to change it to a clearer photo.
