Vancouver Flora and Fauna Holiday

Long time No Blog
Busy gallivanting around with friends.
Took a fabulous road trip through BC to Vancouver with our friends Don and Linda - laughed all the way.
Ate all the way as well.
BC = lush vegetation. Very overwhelming after 2 years in the semi-arid area of Banff with pine trees and grass. BC is like a tropical forest.
Saw dear old friends in Vancouver after a long gap of years - it was as if we hadn't missed any time between visits.
The heron made me think of the East coast.
The turtle was at the Aquarium. LOVED Stanly Park.
We walked every downtown & loved the Sylvia Hotel on English Bay where we stayed.
Charley in a tree trunk.
A Coot - look at its feet - you can tell it's a water bird. It's a coot and I am an old coot.
Swan in the rain - oh yes it rained the whole time we were there but it didn't stop us from loving everything. Raccoons in Stanley Park begging for food from people.
Had to laugh that I was taking pictures of them - since my brothers would both say they are int he backyards all the time - knocking on the patio doors.

So good to see a post from you again. I've missed MojointheMountains! Also great to hear that your holiday was good, and that being with Bob and Nuala was wonderful.
