A day in Vancouver

Leaving Vancouver Island we took a car ferry across to Vancouver.  Every time we travel to any place William and I always watch You Tube videos on what to do in that city.  The top attraction in Vancouver that caught my eye in the videos was Capilano Suspension Bridge.  Those of you who know me are probably not surprised that I would seek out such an adrenaline packed adventure.  On the ferry we picked up a brochure about the bridge and realized it was only a few miles from where we would disembark the ferry.  So off we went!

Notice that I am almost running to start across the swinging bridge.

The bridge is 460 ft long and 230 ft above the river.  It swings quite a bit but more so at the beginning and end of the bridge.

Here is William, Jon and Stephanie crossing the bridge.  They may not have been as excited as I was.

There was lots to do here with Tree Top bridges, totem poles and much more.  We had lunch and then headed to Stanley park.

The weather was absolutely beautiful so there were lots of people enjoying Stanley Park this day.  First we crossed the Lion’s Gate Bridge and then headed to the park.

Here’s a couple of pictures of the city of Vancouver taken from the park.

The last stop today was at the border.  It took us about half an hour to make it through.  While sitting there I made a comment, “Wow, that looks really strange.  That looks like a bunch of birds flying out of a blank sign.”  Quickly I was informed, “Rosa, that’s art.”

We made it back to Jon and Stephanie’s home in Bellingham that evening.  Here’s a pic of the pretty little lake, Lake Louise, in their neighborhood.
