Time to get serious and start sharing images from this this crazy year of travels!
After several weeks in American Samoa this past fall I was struck by the sheer beauty of the place. This left me, as a Samoan, with an overwhelming feeling of pride and respect for the this land of our ancestors. I think these two intertwined islands off the coast of Tutuila provide an almost literal interpretation of the often used phrase “Island Love.” Hopefully someday I’ll find out the Samoan origin story behind these intriguing little islets.
Back in Vancouver for the best weather to indulge in happy hour oysters. These pacific beauties are from Tocador on Main! 🐚🐚🐚
@bartocador s a great new addition to Mount Pleasant. Their cocktails are very original, but it's their oysters that you should come for happy hour: only $1.33 per half shell! They serve them with a mango mignonette, which is one of the best variations I've had so far. The velvety sweetness goes so well with the cucumber flavour of the Pacific Rims from Barkley Sound, on the wild side of Vancouver Island.
