We spent last week in Vancouver…. what a great city! Even though the weather was cooler than in Southern California, the temperatures hit the 90’s on most days except on the weekend. You just don’t expect hot weather like that in Vancouver.
On our first day in Vancouver, we met our friend, Betty, and her two daughters, Michelle and Kerri, for drinks and dinner. In a great coincidence, we were in Vancouver the day before they left for a cruise to Alaska. We had a great time with them.
The next day we booked a tour on a seaplane. Here are some of the aerial shots I got:The following day we went to the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park and spent the morning in the park. We crossed the suspension bridge and were scared to death. There were plenty of people on the 460 foot bridge as it swayed over the river some 200 feet below. Here’s what it looked like. Once across the bridge, we experienced the Treetop Adventure which took us through the trees on multiple smaller suspension bridges – it was gorgeous! We spent the rest of our weekday time walking the streets of Vancouver – eating and drinking along the way, of course. We timed our visit to Vancouver so that I could participate in a Street Photography workshop with Ian MacDonald. Ian is a great street photographer based in Vancouver and is also an excellent instructor. Our workshop was relatively small so we had a lot of personalized attention. Here are some of the street images I captured in the two day workshop.
All in all, it was a great visit. Vancouver is a wonderful city and its people are gracious and welcoming. We hope to see Vancouver again soon.
