So as we are on the flight to Vancouver, Mick very helpfully reminds me that when we left Geraldton, i asked him to remind me to buy mints. Yes, he is very helpful with reminders!
Well, Vancouver is so beautiful and picturesque! we had a full day yesterday on the hop on hop off bus, did the "Fly over Canada" which is a cinema.....you know, when its all like a circle and you feel like your in it! Well, we certainly felt like we were in it...to the point where Mick felt sick for the rest of the day! The boys got off the bus and I continued on to Granville Island. The last time I was here was in 2003. My friend Kathi who I met when I was 13, is meeting us today- we are catching the ferry to Gibsons, where she lives, and I am super excited- she's never met Mick or Jack obviously! Its amazing to think I've known her for 32 years and we've stayed in touch all that time!
I bought some Sparkling Sake from a little family here who now make it locally- it was sublime Judy, you'd love it! also bought chocolates that Mick said were too nice to eat, until he ate one, and changed his mind!
Jack is enjoying the exploring and generally going well. With long days, early mornings and being flat out, we are early to bed most nights.
Gastown is one of my favourite areas- so picture perfect!
Here are a few snaps (unedited) from yesterday!
