Vacationing in Vancouver: Highlights

Our vacation itinerary has been so packed and energy-draining that we come home exhausted and I seem to have just enough time to download the daily photos before collapsing.  Today is our seventh day and we decided to come back to the hotel mid-afternoon and take the rest of the day off.  The good news is that I have a little time to share some of our adventures with you.

Here are some highlights from the two action-packed days we spent in the city of Vancouver last week:

Listening to the whistle of the historic steam clock in historic Gastown

Spotting salmon swim up the Capilano River at the Capilano Salmon Hatchery

Marveling at the gushing water flowing down the Cleveland Dam
Walking to Granville Island from our condo for shopping and lunch at the public market
Traversing the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge, 160 feet above the canyon

Hiking the trails at Lynn Canyon Park
Stalking the studio where "Fringe" had just started filming season 4

Noshing on some comfort food at the Tomahawk Barbecue

Believe it or not, those photos are representative of just a portion of our escapades.  Just looking at the photos again makes me tired!  Up next are pics from our sea kayaking trip in the Puget Sound off San Juan Island.  Be ready to see some orca whales!
