Vancouver! As excited I was to be in Vancouver, that meant our trip was almost over. After we disembarked the ship, we hopped onto a private tour (luggage and all) and took a tour around Vancouver. We stopped at the famous Stanley Park and walked around browsing the Totem Poles, crossed the Lions Gate Bridge and went to the Capilano Suspension Bridge, spent some time on Granville Island and had lunch, city tour that ended in Gastown just in time to see the steam clock go off! Our tour dropped us off at the hotel by the airport and we settled in since our flight wasn't until the next morning. Then we had to kiss Canada (and vacation good-bye)! We had a wonderful trip, and even though I have been to Alaska twice...I would return in a heartbeat!
