My DIL is taking some time off nursing to supervise the servers to the Olympian families, so she will have an up close and personal encounter with many participants there. She is pretty excited about it, whereas my son is pretty envious!
This is spectacular Mount Baker! It sits in the state of Washington which is just across from White Rock, an exclusive seaside area which we drove through after filling our tummies at Ihop.
This sweet little chalet sat across the road from the entrance to the Suspension Bridge. I thought it was so quaint that I had to get a picture.The entrance to the Suspension Bridge.The Bridge crosses over the Capilano River which we didn't cross because there were too many of us, and at $30 a head, it was rather expensive. I don't think Zachary would have appreciated it very much. Besides, I wasn't going to cross it anyway! I like my feet on the ground, thank you very much!
So, instead of going across the Bridge, we went up Cypress Mountain. It was fantastic!
This is the view from Cypress Park and that is some of North Vancouver spread out below to the left.
Among the many things we enjoyed were: took the sky train to the Metrotown Mall which was vast in size with several floors. From the sky train, I saw so many tall buildings and mountains; a sight for these eyes.
My hubby and our son went to the Imax theatre to see a movie. Hubby also saw his first NHL hockey game. We drove through Stanley Park and also walked through a very interesting park just steps from my son's home. It had enormous trees. My son has those pictures.
Story time before bedtime. Zachary loves hearing stories from his collection of books.
