Vancouver mon amour....

It's nothing quite like getting into Vancouver with the wonderful ocean and mountain views. Weather was a bit hazy but had a warm swim in English Bay after we got settled into our room. We met John Stape for dinner last night and had a good visit. We went to Tampoco...the all you can eat Japanese food place and had a super meal very cheap. John worked in Japan for quite a few years so ordered some more unusual things off the menu....yum.

Then today an unexpected bonus of seeing Kerry for lunch. She's in town at the moment buying a condo in the English Bay area...great looking place!

We're really pleased with our view here:

After I dropped Jim off at UBC today I couldn't resist taking some photos of the freighters and Spanish Banks area:
