I have to say I spent a lot of time in doors working on my blog. We did manage to visit gas town, Granville Island Public Market, which we walked to. It was quite a substantial walk and there are some great stalls to visit there.
We enjoyed the Vancouver Canada Day celebrations. We watched the parade which was unusual as it really had very little I would call Canadian
Representing Canada we had the traffic police, the bin men, the Sherriff...and a few other random things. No ice hockey players or mounted mounties or Native Americans (First Nation or Inuit). These things may be a bit cliche but at the same time they are distinctly Canadian. I don't mean to give offense saying these things. It's just how we felt watching the parade. We enjoyed ourselves though.
Where Jacquie lives is very close to the harbour, so we had a 2 minute walk down to see the fireworks in the evening which was fun.
Our last day, we joined Andrew and his girlfriend Sherreff Kayaking in the bay. It was a beautiful day and we saw a seal. What a nice way to end our wonderful visit.
