Ed tours Vancouver (Day Two)

Today I was the official chauffeur and we started by walking over the Lynn Canyon Suspension bridge


in North Vancouver.    We then headed over to Capilano Canyon and walked in the rain forest


It was getting near lunchtime as my stomach was grumbling, so off to Horseshoe Bay


for a shared sandwich.  We didn't wish to eat too much and spoil our dinner


Then a quick jaunt over to Whytecliff Park in West Vancouver


Where we just happened to stumble across some local wild life.  It was  fine day for criss crossing the City


Here we see Ed admiring some expensive homes on Eagle Island.   There is never enough time when you are having fun but Ed has to move on and leave tomorrow morning.


His bike is packed he is making some final notes as he is developing his route home.   Have a safe journey and we hope to see you again soon

  1. More fun to be had. It looks as though you gave him the grand tour. Such a good host.

      I took a couple of days off and played tourist too, except that I'd been there before. It was nice to not have to go to work and have someone to talk to all day. He didn't want to ride anywhere as he still had a long ride home so we parked our bikes. Plus it was too hot to ride

  2. It sure is nice to have visitors. It gives you a reason to travel around and show off your own back yard. What kind of electronic gizmo is Ed using in the last photo? Interesting how the screen can be so flexible...

      It's hard to know what they want to see. Some like to go shopping and others just like to relax. We did spend some time trying to find a photo accessory for his GoPro, and we found one.

      Ed is using a pad of paper and writing something using his ball point pen. No electronics

    2. I cheated and did not use my $$$ Fountain Pen, which I much prefer...

  3. Wildlife has changed quite a bit since I left. The wildlife I used to know was way furrier.

    Safe travels to Ed.

      I had to go back and look again. Yup, looks like wildlife to me. We took the new NFPR (Hwy 17) and ended up at 200th street for a quick snack and then he headed East towards Greenwood. I came back on Hwy 10
