Woke up to a glorious sunny day. We took the tourist "Hop on Hop Off Bus" around Vancouver and visited some famous land marks. Stanley Park is one of the world's great city parks with a sea wall, surrounding it on 3 sides, where the locals run, cycle or roller blade for exercise. We were impressed by the display of Totem Poles there.
Back on the bus to Gastown which is the re-developed heart of old Vancouver, now a mix of shops, bars and restaurants. It was originally developed around a tavern established by "Gassy Jack" from Yorkshire.
We walked from Gastown to visit the Sails of Canada Place where the massive cruise ships dock and the long pier which gives sensational views.
From there we hopped back on the bus to Granville Island, just having enough time to visit the public market and some of the many craft shops before a walk around the island's sea wall back to our hotel for an evening meal with a stunning lookout, over the motor yachts berthed just outside, to Vancouver city itself.
