Vansterdam

27 Oct

Before I went on vacation I learned that Vancouver is known for their BC Bud. Now, I don’t smoke pot or do any other drugs. Honestly, I’m just not good at drugs. I took an Ultram once and didn’t sleep for three days. But I thought maybe grandma might want to give it a try. I’m pretty sure it’s on her “I’m not going to kick the bucket” list.  But I didn’t want to throw her right in to a new world of drugs and fun, so first we went to lunch on the water by the convention center. The Husband and I went to check the area out first and we found a cute pub with a view of the seaplanes taking off. So I called the family and had them meet us at the giant blue hair follicle.

Sure looks like hair.

We had a lovely lunch at Mahoney and Sons. Watching the seaplanes take off and land was really fun. And the view of the mountains and the water was so beautiful.

We saw a digital orca.

My mother is obsessed with the Olympics!

The next day grandma, the Husband, and I went to Stanley Park. We walked around and enjoyed the trees and flowers.

We had a lovely lunch then headed on a horse drawn carriage ride.

The carriage took us all over part of Stanley Park. The view was so beautiful. Seriously, Vancouver is such a fabulous city!

The next day we took a bus and the ferry to Victoria. And no, grandma never did try the BC Bud.
