........the beginning of our journey
12.07.2016 - 13.07.2016
... .Luckily for you readers, I am quite tired tonight. So, it will be more about photos than written descriptions!
We landed at Vancouver International about a 3 hours before we left Brisbane on the same date, 12 July. A cloudy, drizzly day did not aid our jet-lagged haziness! Although we had a lovely lunch at "Bread And Meat" and two good walks, the only photos we took were in the evening, near where we had a delicious dinner at "Cactus Club" in Coal Harbour.
TODAY, however, was pretty lively. We boogied to the Bank in the morning, followed by lunch at Timmy's (Tim Horton's, one of Rob's favourite Canadian casual diners). Then, another l-o-n-g walk, during which time many photos were taken. We ended up in Stanley Park, riding from spot to spot on a "Hop-On, Hop-Off" tram-style bus. Our two best stops were Prospect Point and The Totem Poles! '
Afternoon tea was maple ice-cream for me & a raspberry and cream ice-cream for Rob.
But dinner: we surpassed our previous night's effort, although we dined in the same district of Coal Harbour. Second night in a row, waterfront dining. Second night in a row, seafood for me! Rob had short ribs last night, but Halibut was on the menu tonight. And I tried sablefish......oh my, it melted in my mouth. This could replace salmon as my favourite fish!
We are soooooo tired, but have to rise early tomorrow! Pick up the car, go grocery & esky shopping, get out of Vancouver, and I have absolutely no idea where we will be tomorrow night!
PHOTOS ARE IN THE PHOTO GALLERY FOR THIS ENTRY. NOT FINISHED DOWNLOADING YET.......famous last words!
