The Vancouver Diaries

We're not in Kansas anymore.

It’s Not Goodbye

My time in Vancouver came and went.  It’s safe to say I’m a huge pot of mixed emotions.  On one side I’m sad, because I’ll miss Vancouver.  I’ll miss the food, the culture, the whole experience.  I know it’s only Canada, but unless you’ve been you’ll never understand.  On the other side, I’m excited for the new adventures ahead in Austin.  Below are some of the things we did the last few months in Vancouver.

Dave and I always obsessed over the Vancouver Aquarium.  Thankfully, we had the opportunity to visit before we left.

Dolphin!

Cute little Dolphin!

Dave and I were walking around the docks at Jericho Beach and were startled by this little guy below:

Another adventure took us to the Baden Powell hiking trail in Deep Cove, which is in North Vancouver.

One of my favorite memories of our last month in Vancouver was having dinner with Dave’s boss on the top of Grouse Mountain at a restaurant called, The Observatory.

Starter salad.  Wish I remembered what is was called, but it was delicious!

Main course. Probably the best steak I've ever had. Ever!

The second to last weekend, we spent a lot of time in Stanley Park.

Below is a photo of Dave and I at the rain drop statue “The Drop” located in the Coal Harbour neighborhood of downtown Vancouver.  It’s not the best photo, but unfortunately I that’s because I do not have a nice camera.  (If anyone would like to buy me a really nice camera, I would not oppose.)

I’ll leave you all with two gorgeous views of Vancouver.  You’ll have to forgive my crappy iPhone quality video’s 🙂

Truth.

It’s not goodbye, it’s see you later! 🙂
