Vancouver, BC - Tuesday, October 19th

Tuesday was a gorgeous day! We took full advantage of the nice weather and walked and biked around the city and parks. We started the morning off again at Coo Coo Coffee for a light breakfast. It was then off to find a bike rental place so we could ride around Stanley Park. On our way to the bike shop we walked along English Bay Beach and enjoyed the views of the water and the mountains. It was such a clear and sunny day! We picked up our bikes and headed straight into Stanley Park for a ride around the perimeter of the park. Along the route there are lots of places to stop and take pictures. It was a great way to spend our morning! Stanley Park is quite large so halfway around we decided to try and have lunch at the restaurant in the park.
What we didn't realize was that this restaurant was at the top of a very large hill. I struggled up that hill! But, with all the struggle, you get the awesome view at the top.
After a rather unhealthy lunch involving poutine, it was time for the awesome ride downhill and back into the city. The ride down probably took 5 minutes while the ride up close to a half hour!
After such an exhilarating ride downhill, we returned the bikes, hoped on a bus back to the hotel and plotted our next adventure.
I really wanted to go to the Museum of Anthropology at the University of Vancouver so we figured out how to get there on the bus and started the trek across town. It would be the only museum we went to on our whole trip! I had to get at least one in :) While I took my time walking through the musuem and admiring all the native art, Kevin took a walk outside and took some awesome pictures at sunset.
With our final day coming to a close, we wanted one last tasty dinner before heading back to the real world. On the way back to the hotel we stopped at ReFuel in the Kitsilano neighborhood. We had a nice, relaxed dinner and reflected on all the fun things we got to do on this trip. We'd love to come back and visit Vancouver!
