Read Time2 Minute, 28 Second

Yesterday, I met up with my friends Agnes, Leonard, and Lawrence in Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant area. We were there to be a part of a guided walking tour of the 2019 Vancouver Mural Festival.  It was the first time that any of us had been to the annual festival.  

We had agreed to meet at 2:30 pm at the laneway between W7th and W8th Avenues, which is where the guided tour was to start. I arrived at 1:45 pm and decided to begin walking down the alleyways to view some of the 100+ murals that were painted on the sides of buildings by local and international artists.

I started to take some videos on my cell phone but unfortunately, I was only able to cover half of the murals because I ran out of storage on the phone!

But I did manage to capture the following 20 short clips, which I put together on this YouTube playlist:

Yes, Spanky, I know that I’m not very good at taking videos and it’s difficult to understand me when I’m talking – but hopefully, you’ll find the video clips entertaining.

By the way, I plan to go back to Vancouver later this week and take more videos of the murals. Maybe, if you’re interested, we can do it together. Give me a call and we’ll arrange something.

Of if you’d rather do the tour by yourself – here is a copy of the map and list of artists – for you to use as a guide.

Today’s tune from Danny’s library (purchased):

As Long as You Follow – lyrics

I’ve been searching
For a pot of gold
Like the kind you find
At the end of the rainbow

I’ve been dreaming
Thought it was in vain
Ah, but now you’re here
Can’t believe that you’re back again

Now I know I can’t lose
As long as you follow
I’m gonna win (I’m gonna win)
I’m gonna beg, steal, or borrow
As long as you follow

I’ve been wandering
Gone away too far
But the road was rough
To get back where you are

And the sun went down
Never seem to rise
Ah, but now you’re here
With the light shining in your eyes

Now I know I can’t lose
As long as you follow
I’m gonna win
I’m gonna beg, steal, or borrow

Yes, I can live to dream
If you give me tomorrow
As long as you follow

Now I know I can’t lose
As long as you follow
I’m gonna win
I’m gonna beg, steal, or borrow

Yes, I can live to dream
If you give me tomorrow
As long as you follow

As long as you follow
As long as you follow
As long as you follow
As long as you follow
As long as you follow
