Where I stayed
The next day we went on the hop on off bus and it took us to stanley park. we saw the totem poles lots of cherry blossoms and massive old trees. we hope to ride around it when we return there after skiing.
we then got back on the bus to 4th ave to look for some ski clothes but it was all a bit expensive there so only had really nice italian lunch at a cafe. back on the bus and next stop was gas town
the next morning we went back to robson street for some more shopping, jeans, ski pants, shoes - i think we need a new suitcase. we then headed to the vancouver flea market. it was like on big garage sale lots of old used stuff. we then grabbed the hop on off bus again and went to Granville island. it has a great market with heaps of fresh food, baked goods and crafts. pity the weather was bad while we where there. we then caught the water taxi (little ferry) to yaletown and the bus back to our hotel. we went to a nice resturant upstairs off Robson street for dinner.
our last day we went up to grouse mountain and went across the capilano suspension bridge. it is massive and swings quite a lot but is in some very beautiful surrounds
the next morning we slept in and had a late breakfast before getting our bus up to Whistler. we arrived just after 3pm. after a look afound the village we got something to eat and had a early night in preparation for today. Today we hit the mountain, SKIING. it is fantastic here the snow is great and the area is huge. it is forecast to snow later in the week but there is heaps to do here. a bit tired at the moment as skied all day.
