Alaska 2016 | Day 105-106 | Vancouver

Friday and Saturday in Vancouver were a whirlwind: tons of walking, a bit of shopping (exchange rate sure helps), catching up with Vince and Linda from the flotilla, meals out, Theatre Under the Stars (West Side Story), aquarium visit, tandem biking, more walking...

Happy hour with Vince and Linda after tandem biking around Stanley Park.
Oops, not sure how this sailboat ended up aground in False Creek.

Vancouver is a great city to visit by boat. It's easy to walk from False Creek to the major tourist areas like Stanley Park, downtown, Chinatown, and Gastown. Most of the city felt safe (although everyone used bike locks on their dinghies) and prices were reasonable. It's beautiful, with water all around and mountains in the distance. Thanks to Vince and Linda for playing tour guide!
