Vancouver & 'burbs December: Beaches & Pretty Lights

Hi all, just thought I'd whip up a thread of some of the random pics I took over the last month. Most of them were taken in downtown Vancouver and the rest taken in the suburban area known as South Surrey, along the US-Canada border.

Starting off in Vancouver's 'West End' neighbourhood...
