Vancouver

Vancouver BC (2 of 2)

Ok so the weather was okish. You can’t expect too much for end of September and early October in Canada. We had rain but we also had sun. Both Scott and I ran outdoors a lot and were across the street from Burnaby Lake which was a huge huge huge area left natural…free of bikes too!

We would run to the spit. Which is  basically a long deck extended over the lake full of wildlife.

Oh and black squirrels. They were everywhere.

BURNABY FARMERS MARKET

for the size of the city, this was smaller than we anticipated. Still fun!!


TERRA NOVA ADVENTURE PARK

This $1 million playground was as epic as it sounds. It’s out overlooking the water as far West in Richmond as you can get. About a 45 Min drive from Burnaby.

Anikka found her true passion on the zip line! We must have done that 15 times.

Swangin!!

Nice views looking west.

ROBERT BURNABY PARK

this was 5 Min from the RV park and held a disc golf course too!

BLOEDEL CONSERVATORY

Scott and anikka went while I worked. Apparently I missed out!

The space was huge and open for close encounters with rare birdies!!

The two abover are the world’s second largest macaws!

At the mall…

Cool graffiti.

That’s about enough of Van. We loved it and explored a lot. Loved the indoor jacuzzi but excited to get back to the mountains up north in Squamish!

Vancouver BC (1 of 2)

We spent 3 weeks total at Burnaby-Caribou RV Park in Burnaby…which is a suburb just south of Vancouver. One of the dozens of suburbs actually. Vancouver is the largest city we have been to in Canada with over 2.4 million people and multiple sprawling downtown areas. It is quit impressive, very lush and green with tons of parks, playgrounds and both indoor and outdoor activities.

Here’s pulling into the RV park. This one was cool because they had a massive playground, indoor heated pool, hot tub, 1500sf TV room, rooftop patio, and good WiFi signal. Yes that’s how we judge RV parks lol. The only downside was the parking situation. This was the only time the entire trip we couldn’t park at the RV. They had a designated area close by.

So we did SO MUCH that I’m going to split this into 2 blogs as I’m getting my hair did right now.

STANLEY PARK

A small island in the heart of town town which holds the aquarium, bike trails, the totem poles, and tons of beach area. We hopped on our bikes and did the 7km path around the exterior of the island.

A waterpark we found. Too cold for water tho.

Looking out from where Scott is in the pic above.

Under lions gate bridge.


Still riding around…

We saw red starfish!!

The map of Stanley park.

Of course… They had a playground…and we just had to play there 🙂

Actually 2 giant playgrounds…one across the field

Day and night shot.

GRANVILLE ISLAND

Yet another island which holds a famous and sprawling market and is home to North Americas largest free outdoor water park.

It was raining on Scott’s birthday the first day we went.


Granville island brewery!! $18 sampler 

Granville has so many shops and things to do. You can easily spend the day here.

The second time we went, it was sunny! So we took the ferry around for a fun hour trip. It was only $15 for all of us to ride a loop to all the stops.

Her funny face.

They see me Rollin!

I spy Science World! Yes we went. See below.

Finally Granville has a killer kids building with a million things for all ages.

TELUS SCIENCE WORLD

The view from the other side.

It was raining this day too lol

T rex!!!

This was by far the largest science center we have been to! We spent about 4 hours there, plus travel time with light rail. We explored less than half of the exhibits.

Every corner we turned there was so much more!!!!

We had to stop and eat at some point so we had a nice view.

Ok… More Van in the next blog!!!
