Vancouver Dreamin'....

Our timeshare travel assistant called today...she's found a swap for our Palm Beach timeshare...she's booked us 5 days in VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA for this summer, yippee!  
We'll be talking about the possibilities and we have a 24-hour period before we have to say "yay or nay"...

Meanwhile, I'll be "Dreamin' about"...
...no housework for 5 days
...no menu planning, laying out frozen food, or cooking
...being out of the intense Southern heat in the summer
...taking pics and seeing new places...
such as Canada Place...With its 5 sails, you can
 walk all the way around on a pedestrian promenade...views across Burrard Inlet to the North Shore peaks and toward nearby 
Stanley Park as well as the older, low-rise buildings of Gastown, where 
Vancouver began.

...walking the seawall at English Bay

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN THERE?  
ANY RECOMMENDATIONS?

You're going to love Vancouver! My hubby and I spent our honeymoon there (1966), and have visited many, many times since.

Gas Town for restaurants is fabulous.

The ferry to Victoria (and the Butchart Gardens once there) is beautiful, and so too the Empress Hotel (be sure to grab High Tea).

The mountain lift ride up Grouse Mountain is a memorable day trip.

Stanley Park and the zoo is a must!

The Wax Museum is one of the best anywhere.

If I think of anything else, I'll be back!
