It is a small world when you are at White Rock Beach, BC

Visitors to the White Rock Beach Waterfront Promenade Gallery – April 17, 2015

2015-04-17d-01
This couple visiting White Rock Beach BC is from Ontario. I asked them where and they were trying to explain where Leamington and Kingsville, Ontario was. I told them I have been there many times and in the summer of 1967, I spent my time there picking tomatoes for the Heinz Ketchup plant located there. With my wife’s family from that area, I dropped a few names. Long story short, the people above owned a restaurant where my in-laws would go for Sunday morning breakfast and remembers my wife’s family. They had told me their last name was Colasanti. I then asked if he had any connection to Colasanti’s Tropical Gardens  – long story short, this guy’s brother owns it. I even photographed some wildlife there in the 1990’s, like one of their Emus- shown below.

I also talked bout the hat he was wearing, as my brother in-law and father in-law made many purchases from the company printed on his cap. This couple was blown away how many connections and paths we have crossed. I could have talked to them for hours and made more connections, but they ticket cars at the beach. LOL.

2015-04-17d-02Talking to Synde – shown in this photo – she said she was from Alberta visiting White Roch Beach and had a cousin that had a shop on a side street on the west beach that sells coffee.  I asked if she was talking about MOSSY”S and she confirmed Kathy was her relative. I told Synde, Mossy’s needed a logo so I created one for them. Also they sell my postcards, greeting cards, magnets and Lucky Coins.

I even showed her a video where I got her cousin on Go Vancouver.

Also while at the beach I got a phone call from Sharp Entertainment based out of New York City who produce some shows for TLC in the USA.

They want to do a follow-up about me since I was on a show on TLC in 2010 that re-airs 3 or 4 times a year. Today I have been seen by over 120 Million people worldwide.

Here is going for a half a billion viewers. I will try to get a plug for my NEW Lucky Coin v3.0.

Also at the beach we had some sales to people who did not speak a word of English and think they may have been from Sweden or Finland.

On another day I was talking to a lady who said she was from out east. Long story short, we were born in the same city and hospital in New Brunswick. I did not dare ask the year and day, maybe we were mixed up at birth – I still feel my last name should be IRVING not Wallace. (I am not leaving BC – LOL).

I usually just ask people where they are from to strike up a conversation. On one occasion I met a man called Ivan with a Russian sounding accent. I asked him where he was from. He replied “WHY DO YOU NEED TO KNOW  –  ARE YOU KGB?”

Having travelled most of Canada and been on TV, Radio, newspaper, etc  I can find out many connections or if our paths have crossed for fun.

A COOL and Windy day in store for White Rock Beach – PERFECT for surfboard sailing!

A COOL and Windy day is scheduled for White Rock Beach – PERFECT for surfboard sailing!

The White Rock Beach Gallery – Featuring the work of ARTographer Ric Wallace was hoping to be set up on the west beach today, but with the wind forecasted to get even windier, we have decided to set up on another less windy day. We have totally redesigned our setup (over 40+ hours). Below is our first day we set up. We will no longer be using free standing postcard and greeting card racks.

wr-gallery-waterfront

Due to the unlevel ground and wind from the passing trains, we have designed a better layout which will have all 80 White Rock Beach postcards on display (the only location to have this). With our new modular system we can get our stuff unloaded in 5 minutes, and reduce our set up and take down time. Our uptown indoor location is not affected by the trains, wind or rain.
