Vibrant Vancouver

 On September 3rd, Ray and I flew to Vancouver, Canada to begin our cruise adventure. Vancouver proved vibrant, sunny, and warm. We delighted in walking along the harbor.
 Any city on water is wonderful
 We toured Stanley Park. Here's a Little Mermaid statue
 Totem poles were unique and colorful, celebrating some native heritage
And the runner statue is emblematic to me of a city in motion.

We enjoyed our oh-too-brief time in Vancouver and thank our friends to the north for their hospitality.

Now it's Monday and I'm back to work for a full week slog. I shall be getting back to regular posts and visits. Hope everyone is well. Let's have a great week.


  1. Totem poles are cool. Glad you had a good time, even if it was brief.

  2. It looks pretty there! Lots of adventures yiu had during yiur trio, now back to the grind.


  3. Hi Joanne - looking forward to more pics of your trip - and I'd love to spend time in Vancouver ... it was lovely when I was there .. but our stay was so brief - we went on over to the island ... cheers Hilary

  4. I only got up there once. It was definitely beautiful but I love Victoria better. Too bad you didn't have time to go to North Vancouver.

  5. They sure do get lots of exercise there

  6. Beautiful pictures! I'm glad you had such a good time.

  7. I love Vancouver and Stanley Park. We saw the cruise ships in Canada Place and promised ourselves to make that Alaska trip one day! It's a bit pricey from the UK.

  8. Have a wonderful cruise and above all enjoy yourself.

    1. we are back. Now you are seeing what we did. It was wonderful

  9. I enjoyed these and the photos below. It looks as though you kids had a great time. Vacations are always way too short, right? And the transition back to reality - too hard. I'm glad you had a great getaway, though.

  10. Too bad you couldn't have stayed in Vancouver a little longer. It looks like a dream destination all by itself. Gorgeous weather, too. Just look at that sky! (I'll bet it wasn't ninety plus doggone degrees, either, like it STILL is here, and probably is there in Texas, too.)
