Yet another day in Paradise
Yesterday we had a walk around our part of Vancouver. The sun goes down around 9.00pm so there is plenty of daylight to get around after dinner.
Today we had a city tour of Vancouver. We left around 9.00am after breakfast at the hotel. We travelled around Gastown, China Town and West Vancouver.
We stopped at Stanley Park to see the Indian Totem Poles. Stanley Park is around 1000 acres and is quite similar to New York's Central Park. There are a large collection of Indian Totem Poles. The park has good roads and bicycle tracks and is very well used by locals and visitors alike.
On our way back we stopped at Granville Island to sample some great food. We decided to buy some fresh baguettes, German Ham and Mediterranean Salad along with Sicilian Olives for a late lunch. The maple pecan nuts are to die for.
I thought that yesterday was our last day in Vancouver but I was wrong. We leave here on The Rocky Mountaineer at 7.00am in the morning. The train doesn't have Wifi so hopefully our Fairmont Hotel in Bannf tomorrow night will have Wifi as I think I am becoming a bit addicted to blogging (or so Colleen tells me).
