Vancouver…..Rain, Rain, and more Rain!

 

 

Hi everyone!  Well, the rumours are true!  Kim said it does rain a lot in Vancouver…..but that doesn’t stop people from getting out and about and having a great time.

Kim is staying at an air b an b condo in an area called Yaletown.  She loves this condo….it’s small and cozy and in a great location.  It’s walking distance to great restaurants in a historic neighbourhood, close to the sea wall and transportation.  A subway station is close by and she said there are some really cool passenger ferries that make it really easy to get around!

On Sunday she made her way downtown to Cycle City Tours.  She joined a group of 10 people for their 5 hour Grand Tour.  She loved it!  (Despite the downpour…..a little rain never hurt anyone. 😉). The group visited Stanley Park, Granville Island, Chinatown and Gastown.  Their guide Adam was amazing!  He ensured everyone learned about the history of Vancouver…stopping to provide more details and commentary along the way.   Kim loves the group she was with….most were visiting from Australia and Europe…with a couple of Canadians in the mix 😉👍

Here are some of the highlights….Kim seems to love the rain.  Stanley park….

 

Other spots in Vancouver….

 

And folks, Kim said there is nothing better than a celebratory flight of beers with new friends….especially when they were all drenched!  A group of them went to a local pub called The Butcher & Bullock.  Cheers!

 

On Monday, Kim made her way to Granville Island.  She loved her tour last week with Vancouver Foodies so much, she joined their Granville Island Market Tour.  She loved Granville Island.  It has wonderful markets and artisan shops.

Their guide Lydia took them through the market where they enjoyed tastings at Edible Canada (fish), JJ Bean (coffee), 2 different kinds of breads at A Bread Affair, charcuterie at Oyama Sausage, 2 kinds of cheese at Benton Brothers Fine Cheese, honey crisp apples at #1 Orchard, chai tea (it really is Christmas in a cup,) at Granville Island Tea Company, and Kim’s favorite tasting…..a honey dipped , warm from the oven, donut at Lee’s donuts….

Wow!  That’s a lot of tastings!  Kim highly recommends this tour too…..come hungry!

 

Tuesday is Kim’s last full day in Vancouver….she said it is still raining, but she will make the most of it!  We are looking forward to her coming home tomorrow!  Later folks……have an amazing day 🐶🐶🐶🐾🐾🐾
