Day 9 Vancouver, B.C., Canada

This morning we sailed into Vancouver, British Columbia…. The sail in was beautiful. What a beautiful city! I spent the day exploring Vancouver starting with going to the top of Grouse Mountain…. The view was great and I loved the Grizzly Bears….. Next we went to Stanley Park, again with great views and even some nice Totem Poles. We were then dropped off at Granville Island, checking out the shops and markets. WE took the ferry across the bay and meandered around the city heading for the Gaston area and the Steam operated clock….very cool. It was a beautiful day in a beautiful city…. We are off to L.A.!

Hi Jeff, Thanks for the absolutely wonderful pictures of our city. You sure did a lot in a fairly short period of time. I saw all 3 ships come in this morning. Granville Island is a fun place and near where I live. Gas Town was the "Original" main part of Vancouver way back when. Now it's a great tourist area. You also really hit the jackpot with the weather today. Thanks again and Fair Sailing - Nora
