Vancouver-2014

Before I headed up to Alaska for fishing we went to Vancouver (and then up to Whistler Mountain). аWhat a great time! аWe loved the whole area. Great sights to see, delightful people to meet and delicious food to eat. аHard to beat, eh?

In Vancouver we went to the Aquarium (so-so) and the botanical gardens (which were simply magnificent.) аWe also went to the Chihuly glass museum. Very, very cool stuff. аThe drive up to Whistler was very enjoyable and Whistler was a delight as well. You absolutely must take the gondola from one mountain to another. It is great. аI went for a hike a bit higher up the mountain and that is why there are some pics of me on the top without Vicki. аShe didn’t want to take the walk but if you look at the photo after the two solo shots of me and you follow the road down the mountain you will see that it takes a pretty good dip down and on the top of the road before the dip you will see two little spots of color. One of those is Vicki.

The bridge is a bit of a historical artifact and it is worthwhile to take the back roads a bit so you can see it. аThe plaque says, “Named by Captain George Vancouver on June 10, 1792. аFeeling that he had been “deceived” as to the nature of the inner waterway, Port Gardner (now Saratoga Passage) he wrote on his chart “Deception Pass."
