Hello from Vancouver

We arrived in Vancouver yesterday by ferry. It was a BEAUTIFUL day and we have been so lucky with the weather. It is a sunny day today and the hotel staff state that this weather is so unusual. They usually have rain everyday this time of year. We are taking a trolley tour today and will spend some time in Stanley park. We have to leave at 4 am tomorrow to head home, so will plan a good nights sleep tonight. Its been fun and I have seen some beautiful country.

Here are a few more shots of Victoria, the harbor, china town and the famous Christmas Village. I did not get to shop much due to the time constraints :(






The ferry ride from Victoria. We rode the newest, biggest ferry. It was like a cruise ship. Holding more than 500 cars and 3000 people. We maybe had 100 people on board and it felt like we had the ship to ourselves. This wont be the case during the olympics I am sure.




And our hotel in Vancouver. The Fairmont. Its an old hotel that has be refurbished. The staff is so great.
Well off the take a shower and head out for the day. Richard thinks my blog is more important that him. What can a girls say?
