Vancouver, British Columbia

It might not seem like the optimal time to visit Vancouver but it actually proved to be a wonderful time to enjoy the changing Fall weather. This city is so diverse in both it’s inhabitants and it’s make up that it provided a great reprieve from the monotony of Northern Arizona’s hot climate. Mike and I headed up to Canada and were pleasantly surprised to have some beautiful sunny days along with some light drizzles in between.

While Mike attended to work I was able to roam the city and do some shopping and sight seeing. There was a local film festival but I  discovered it was quickly sold out. I looked into seeing a hockey game but the team was out of town. We finally settled on an evening out and went for dinner and drinks and some live music at Guilt & Company, we loved the lounge/club atmosphere and they had some interesting cocktails choices.

During the day I ventured into China Town where I always find something new and interesting. I especially loved the street murals.IMG_0278

And then found myself wandering into the downtown areas to discover some new favorite places, Chintz and Co. has an abundance of home furnishings and decorator items along with loads of beautiful artificial plants!

I was lucky enough to stumble upon a great place for lunch. The Dirty Apron Delicatessan, a cooking school, where you can taste their creations. While pricey it was definitely worth it!

Saturday we chose to roam through Stanley Park to enjoy some natural scenery, there are about 1000 acres to explore, so we walked along the seawall and visited the Aquarium. It never disappoints and we had a fun day.IMG_0369

The Museum of Anthropology at UBC on the University campus is another favorite destination for us. It has a remarkable collections of native arts, like totem poles, and native history with indoor and outdoor displays. IMG_0328 IMG_0372 IMG_0306 IMG_0297

As is evident we are never at a loss for things to see and do in the city of Vancouver. We hope to continue to explore the surrounding areas which are just as outstanding and beautiful! We recommend it!
