Well Vancouver has been kind to me, providing me with 3 gorgeous days of weather!!!
Went up to Grouse Mountain today (perched 4,100 feet above Vancouver) - they really should rename it Spandex Mountain (a lot of fit people in spandex here..)
Anyway, the views were spectacular. Took the Skyrail up the mountain - not ready for the Grouse Grind (2.9km trail up the mountain - hence why I am not a grinder). Walked around the peak and then took a chair lift further up to see even better views. Came back down just in time to see the two resident Grizzlys Grinder and Coola come out to play. Grinder put on a good show posing for all us crazy people with their cameras.
Then it was time for the lumberjack show (I love wood chopping), very entertaining, putting two lumberjacks up against each other in multiple challenges, throwing in a bit f humour too!!
Time to come back down as I wanted to head over to Granville Island. Only had a couple of hours to walk around GI, but it was really quaint and the Public Markets were great.
Off to Calgary tomorrow, yay!!
