What a great time we had!

Our first time in Vancouver was wonderful. We had a fantastic hotel room that overlooked English Bay and the beach just below us.

Carol and Ron were kind enough to take time the time to show us some of the sights. We drove slowly through Stanley Park passing the Yacht club as we entered. Rounding Brockton point we saw the huge sulpher pile on the Northshore acting as a backdrop to the lighthouse. Then we passed the mermaid on the rock and saw some of the trees that were damaged in the storm at Christmas. Then the Lions Gate Bridge comes into view as we round the last few corners heading out past English Bay

After heading over the Lions Gate Bridge we headed for Cypress Provincial Park and its breathtaking view of the city below.

Then on to Lynn Canyon Park and a short walk over the suspension bridge and a little ways down the Baden Powel path. The intensity of the greeness in the woods was surreal.

Trolls Restaurant

After the short hike and a couple of dozen pictures we headed up Hwy 1 toward Lighthouse park and then on to Horseshow Bay.

By now a hunger had set in and we headed with enthusiasm towards "Trolls" for a fantastic "Fish and Chips Lunch". Crisply, lightly battered fish was a nice change from the heavy, greasy stuff you usually get. We had our choice of  "Cod and Chips" or "Halibut and Chips". The staff was friendly and the view of Horseshow Bay made it an interesting place to dine.

With full stomachs we headed back towards Queen Elizabeth Park for a stroll around the gardens and to have our pictures taken with the statues entitled "The Photo Session" a sculpture by J. Seward Johnson, Jr.  This was a gift to the park from the artist received in 1984.

Slowly winding our way back down the hill we headed home past BC place, along the infamous Hastings street, gas town and back to our hotel.

At the end of the day we had some great memories, had shared a fine day of conversation and sightseeing and another 200 pictures to add to the albums.
