Day 3 - Vancouver (17/8/15)

Well today we met up with Dominique who has been very lucky and has been in Canada for 5 weeks.

First off we moved from our hotel in Richmond to a B&B in Vancouver itself. Pretty painless and the B&B is close to Broadway Skytrain station so easy for our trip to Victoria tomorrow.

We decided to go to Stanley Park and hire some bikes as Dominique said it HAD to be done! And boy was she right!!

It is a 8km bike ride around the sea wall and the views were fabulous. It is an easy ride (thank god as bike riding isn't my thing!!) But i did enjoy bombing around ringing my bell to let those on a leisurely ride know that speed queen was overtaking them on their left!

There are some gorgeous totem poles to see too as well as the Lionshead Bridge (hope thats the right name!!)

Here's the pics!!!

Aftre the bike ride we took a bus downtown to meet Dominique who was saying goodbye to Darah her last friend who has visited her in Canada and who was flying home that night. We then went to Gastown (naturally) for a drink and a bite to eat before heading back to the B&B. We enjoyed it so much we are going to Stanley Park again tomorrow to hire bikes and have a picnic in the park!!

A police car - for Michael!!!
