We made good time getting to Vancouver, but man do British Columbians drive fast!!! Once we got here, we checked into our room which overlooks the Georgian Straits and went to the beach. It was hot and sunny, and we all took a dip in the Pacific Ocean for the first time! Before we went to dinner, we toured Stanley Park, which is also right across the street from us! Fantastic! (Good job choosing the place, dad.) They have a free trolley service that takes visitors around the park, stopping at different attractions. The drivers narrate as you go, so we just stayed on the trolley for the whole time and figured out what we wanted to do the next day! There are beautiful rose gardens, ponds, three beaches, totem poles, an aquarium, countless trails, and much more. By the time we got back to the hotel, we were very hungry and went to a pub-style restaurant that overlooked the bay. We also watched the opening ceremonies when we got back to the hotel...I must say, China's performance was absolutely mind-blowing. It was beautiful. So many years of good history was portrayed. (Everyone seems to be ignoring the bad.) GO CANADA!!!!
