After Andrew and I left Whister, we made our way over to Vancouver! But first, we stopped over at Stanley Falls.
Confession: I have a slight obsession with waterfalls. Don't ask me why. Something about the beauty of a thing that isn't man-made leaves me in absolute awe.
We got to Vancouver late on Friday evening, so we checked into our ghetto hotel (thanks Hotwire), grabbed a bite to eat and called it a night.
Saturday morning, we started the day off with a bus tour of Vancouver!
We happened to be in Vancouver during their Pride week, so on our tour we passed these lovely guys.
I'm not sure what they are or what they represent. All I know is they were dressed for Pride and I thought that was awesome!
One stop on the tour was Granville Island. We decided to get off there and check it out.
There we ate at the most amazing seafood restaurant ever called The Sandbar. I had a salmon sandwich and, I kid you not, I have never ate a sandwich so good before! I want more!
After lunch, and more exploring, we ended up at Stanley Park. That's where we met a super friendly raccoon (um, how cute!), a weird looking slug and an alligator made from a tree. Stanley Park is huge (bigger than Central Park in NYC) and we easily could have spent the whole day there. We didn't though.
That night, we made our way over to English Bay (thanks Emily for making me figure that out!) for some big event. There was an air show, free stuff (I love free stuff!) and...
Sunday, Andrew and I went on a lovely boat cruise.
While on the tour, we saw some seals! So cute!
After the tour, we headed over to the Capilano Suspension Bridge. It's essentially just a giant tourist trap, but I'm a huge sucker for those kind of things. Of course, we managed to take a few pictures while we were there!

That night, we explored a little more.
And had an amazing dinner with a view of the water and the mountains.
The trip may have been short, but it was amazing! I loved Vancouver and would love to visit it again!
Now go visit the very sweet Emily, who has also been to Vancouver! If you creep hard enough on her blog, you'll find her post on it! Just don't creep her out!
