Vancouver Day 1

We got up early this morning to watch the ship cruise into Vancouver.  Today we had to get off the ship. 

We cruised right under the Lions Gate bridge and into Canada Place.

We hopped on the local train to the airport where we rented a car for a few days.  Then we headed to Stanley Park.  We packed a picnic and rented bikes.  They have a nice paved 5.5 mile trail around the park.

We stopped at all the highlights around the park.

Lions Gate Bridge and Lighthouse

Riding the trail was great way to see the park. Stanley Park is a great place for families.  They had a putt putt course, an aquarium, horse and carriage rides, three beaches, a little train and tons of hiking trails.  We only touched the surface of all the things to do in this park.  So if your ever in Vancouver make sure to make a stop in Stanley Park.
Next I will share our day driving the Sea to Sky Highway.  Stay tuned.....
