Kitsilano Spring March
If you were lucky enough to be out this Sunday, you can vouch that it felt like the first true day of spring in Vancouver. At Kitsilano Beach the procession reached a summer-like pitch, a teeming blend of conversations, runners, bicycles, and bystanders. The change to daylight saving time, which no one would really object to being permanent, has abruptly thrust the afternoons into sunshine.

Notably, the first blossoms have begun to emerge. This plum on the western side of Kitsilano Beach Park, famously twisted upon a rock, is among the earliest.
