Gib and I at the Canada Place
"The centre, located downtown, was Canada's Pavilion at the 1986 World Expo and is currently the home of the World Trade Centre and Vancouver Trade and Convention Centre. It also houses the CN IMAX Theatre, a five-story movie screen. Just walking around the structure gives you panoramic views of the city." - YAHOO


Gotta stop and take a pic before the fog goes away (Stanley Park)



Tea break at Capilano Suspension Bridge


fly like a bird if you plan to jump from the Capilano Suspension Bridge :p
"Vancouver's oldest tourist attraction, originally built in 1889, stretches 450 feet (137m) across and 230 feet (70m) above Capilano River." - CAPBRIDGE

Gib's Thinking Spot at Capilano Suspension Bridge


fooling around at the Lighthouse Park
"As it stands, Lighthouse Park contains the largest uncut, coastal-elevation trees in the Lower Mainland. And what a beautiful environment in which to view them. Waves crash against an outcropping of granite as the ocean breeze whistles through the boughs above. All this within a 10-minute walk of the parking lot" - BritishColumbia


There's a rainbow always after the rain...

on our way to Victoria Island


Hear ye, hear ye! we're at Victoria Island
"The romantic waterfront city of Victoria is the vacation capital of Canada, and the premier tourist spot in the Pacific Northwest, basking as it does in the mildest climate in Canada." - vancouverisland


Parliament Building at the back (Victoria Island)
"The BC Government Parliament Buildings looks out over the yachts and sailboats moored in the marina and a two level waterfront walk-way." - victoriabc


the most beautiful Christmas Tree I have ever seen...
Victorian Theme Christmas Tree at The Fairmont Empress Hotel
"The Jewel of the Pacific, The Empress is one of Victoria's highlights....In true British tradition, the hotel is famous for its elegant Afternoon Tea - served to over 75 000 visitors annually! "- britishcolumbia


Soup and salad at Pagliacci's
"Pagliacci’s is a true Victoria original. The Siegel family, led by the local TV personality Howie Siegel, has made the restaurant into one of Victoria’s most popular locations for great pasta and desserts, live music, and wonderful atmosphere." - vancouverisland
