Family Vacation | Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada | Last Day :(

Sorry that it took me so incredibly long to get this last post blogged. This past month turned out to be rather busy with clients! (Good thing, just super busy....be looking forward to some great blogs coming up though). Now on to the last day of our family vacation, once again, text was provided by mom! Thanks bunches mama!

We had a full day to enjoy Vancouver, but there were so many choices! We opted to go to Lynn Canyon Park and check out the Suspension Bridge, a pedestrian bridge, that swings freely 50 m above the canyon. The bridge connects the hiking trails on either side of the canyon. We were tempted to forgo the experience after we saw the line and the drop-off, but proceeded in spite of our misgivings. It was a unique and slightly scary trek, and not one that we repeated. We made our way to the bottom of the canyon, scrambled precariously across the rocks, dodging the deeper sections of the stream, and used the steps back up the other side. As we were almost to the top, we noticed several young men scaling the cliffs and diving into the pool at the bottom of the canyon. It was a dangerous, but apparently exciting, activity.

This photo is just to show the distance in which these guys and gals were jumping...

Kinda hard to tell but, the bottom right of the photo is MUCH further down! (Was hard to capture this on my camera from the angle in which I was standing).

After our adventure in the park, we drove into West Vancouver where we found a wonderful restaurant called the Cactus Club Café. We enjoyed seared tuna (an Iron Chef specialty), steak, and quesadillas. Delicious in every detail! Our next stop was back to downtown Vancouver. This time we discovered a band playing outside at the waterfront. We explored the plaza next to the band, watched the water planes land and take off, and the sunset develop as night approached. When darkness settled over the city, we walked to Gastown, a historic section of the city with nostalgic cobbled streets. The steam clock was quite interesting, and the shops were plentiful for last minute souvenir shopping. Sad to say, but the next day we would be leaving.

It was TIME to say goodbye to Canada! ;) Get it?!? Till my next vacation!
