The weather finally caught up with us and the rainy city showed her true colours today! We woke up to grey skies and lots and lots of rain.
After a leisurely breakfast we jumped on the bus for a last drive around tour with Rob our awesome bus driver.
Lion's Gate Bridge
We headed out to Stanley Park and then to the Capilano Suspension Bridge...such a shame it was so wet! It is a spectacular suspension bridge the crosses the Capilano River. It also has a range of platforms and other smaller bridges that travel through the treetops.
We the shook off the raindrops and headed to Granville Island Markets...AMAZING...the most delectable looking produce of all sorts I have ever seen...drool over these pics!
A quick visit to Chinatown and a drive through Gastown completed the organised activities of the day...
We then had the rest of the day to explore by ourselves. The rain cleared for a while and we wandered around the exclusive shops in Robson Street...then the rain came down again even more steady than before. We darted in and out of buildings and made our soggy way back to the hotel.
We set ourselves up to watch the Vancouver Canucks play another game of the Playoff series and cheered loudly until we had to go to our Farewell Dinner to end the land part of our tour.
Tomorrow is a VERY early morning...up at 5.30 to travel to the US border into Seattle ready to board our ship...the MS Oosterdam and head north to Alaska. Whoo hoo!!
