Was amazing ride. Took heaps of photos. We are so lucky to be here and it not be fact one of the warmest days ...they get over 200 inches of rain a year here in Ketchikan.
We meet with fellow kiwis tonight along with Aussies. To date we have not met any on ship.
64 other nationalities aboard. We then dine with our 9 tour mates .
How is the rugby going.? We are getting snippets of tennis.
Still no sightings of bears .....we continue the bear hunt.
See heaps of bear prints on pavements ...think they tricking!!!!!

We arrived back in Vancouver this morning and have just come back from visitingi
Grouse mountain. Another amazing experience! Gondola somewhat larger than ours back home accommodating 100 people each load. Great views of the city and Vancouver Island. We did not see mountain you can sometimes see in America as bit hazy.
We got to see a couple of bears in captivity and enjoyed a bird show with Eagles and owls.
Nice to be here on a hot day.
Met again with Hedy Kit and she again was tour guide extradonaire taking us to English Bay which was so alive ...such a happening place....showed us where you watched the fire works and explained how it is standing room only and so spectacular. We walked through Stanley park and got close to a raccoon...saw a couple of squirrels and then many herons nests high up in the trees. Saw a turtle also. We then found a Greek restaurant where we had dinner before returning back to our hotel.
Was lovely to meet up again and we have a video to show you on our return.
Today we are breakfasting on the Rocky Mountaineer and stay at Kamloops tonight.
We loved the walk along the sea wall and can see just how you could fall in love with Vancouver. Can understand why real estate is so very expensive.
Must away now as meeting in the lobby soon and away for our next adventure.
Love Norm Di xx
