So close to downtown, you're basically on downtown. Self contained rooms and friendly desk service. Free coffee tea and ice, plus TV lounge, books and laundry just off the lobby. You are right next door to the Museum of British Columbia, Beacon Hill Park, the Legislative building and the Harbour front. It's a couple hundred metres to the bus station that connects you to one of the ferries. Location is amazing for the price. Fully equipped kitchen means we saved a lot on food if we chose not to eat out. 24 hour supermarket 10 walk away.

Our Rocky Mountaineer journey began with a 6.30am pickup from Georgian Court Hotel. Short bus ride to the station where we were jovially greeted by Brandi and Jasmine our hosts on the train for the next two days. It is still early in the season for the Rocky Mountaineer trips and we find ourself in a carriage with only 16 guests. Luxury !!!!! Gracie and I spread from one side of the train to the other over eight very comfortable ...
... point I was kind of rushing because I wanted to get a certain bus back to the city and I was starting to cut it a little fine. I wandered quickly through the Japanese Gardens, which again were very well maintained and lovely.
Then to the Star Pond - which was pretty stunning.. where I encountered a few monks.. one of whom had a giant camera! I am being completely naive here, but I ...
... to be seen, this time an eagle spotting it's prey, swooping around it's prey and attempting to seemingly knock it from the sky. An incredible sight in an incredibly beautiful country.
We did round one bend to find the Rocky Mountaineer train coming the opposite way around the adjacent track... unfortunately Doug was driving and I just didn't get to the camera quickly enough ;-)
However we made the mistake ...
