When it isn't raining, October can be a wonderful month in Vancouver. On this weekend the rains of the past week disappeared and temperatures soared to the low twenties on the south coast.
The colours are glorious with brilliant shades of red, orange and yellow.
And with the drier days, comes the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the local banana harvest. The cultivation of bananas in Vancouver is a relatively recent result of global warming. The residents of this apartment building will soon be picking what appears to be a bounty of the wonderful fruit.
