The Girls Take Vancouver

Back at the start of May, my mom, sister and niece traveled from London to spend a week and some with G and I in Vancouver. It was a ‘girls’ vacation and I think they had a blast. Mom stayed on another week – over on the Island in Tofino – to spend time with her dear friend, Inge. While in Vancouver we toured Steveston; prepared a gourmet meal; hung out at the Pacific Rim; traveled up to Squamish; cycled the Seawall; and ventured over to Victoria for a stay at the Fairmont Empress Hotel. It was awesome! Love you girls tons and hope to see you back here soon!DSCF1854 (2) (1024x760)2) wandering Britannia Shipyards in StevestonDSCF1861 (2) (1024x768)3) at Dr. Sun Yat Sun GardensDSCF1859 (2) (1024x768)4) it’s it pretty!DSCF1862 (2) (768x1024)5) wow! that’s a big ship!DSCF1870 (2) (1024x768)6) visiting the Museum of Anthropology at UBCDSCF1871 (2) (1024x768)7) at UBCIMG_6033 (2) (1024x491)8) enjoying a ‘west coast’ coffee at Matchstick in ChinatownIMG_6038 (2) (1024x670)9) the obligatory photo-op at Jack Poole Plaza with the 2010 Olympic Winter Games torchIMG_6039 (2) (881x1024)10) with Douglas Coupland’s “Digital Orca”IMG_6048 (2) (1024x765) 11) mom looking fabulous at the Fairmont Pacific RimIMG_6051 (2) (1024x765) 12) all of looking fabulous at the Pac RimIMG_6054 (2) (1024x765) 13) the girls take a moment to enjoy the view of English Bay IMG_6058 (2) (1024x682) 14) mother daughter moment at Second BeachIMG_6060 (2) (1024x914) 15) sister brother moment at Second BeachIMG_6073 (2) (1024x765) 16) enjoying the view of Lion’s Gate Bridge from Stanley ParkIMG_6076 (2) (765x1024) 17) sis at Siwash Rock in Stanley Park!IMG_6080 (2) (765x1024)18) sis at Shannon Falls outside Squamish; if you knew my sister’s name you’ll understand the importance of this moment; my gawd, she’s gorgeous!IMG_6089 (2) (1024x765)19) me capturing a moment of sis capturing a moment atop the Sea to Sky Gondola in SquamishIMG_6097 (2) (1024x765)20) they are very happy to be here!IMG_6108 (2) (1024x765)21) the girls at Sea to Sky looking onto Howe SoundIMG_6187 (2) (1024x1024)22) we’re also very happy to be here!IMG_6202 (2) (1024x1024) 23) (no words necessary)IMG_6185 (2) (1024x1024) 24) across we go!IMG_6116 (2) (1024x765) 25) her first ‘fish taco’IMG_6115 (2) (1024x765) 26) waiting for the ferry to Victoria
