Eric and I went to Vancouver, BC this past weekend. I had no idea what a big city Vancouver was. I thought I was a city girl until I saw this big city!! I've never been to NYC but I would image this would be similiar. So many people and from so many different ethnic backgrounds. It's a true melting pot there. I heard at least 5 different languages just walking around. They had a Sears there that is NOTHING like the Sears we have here. It was so upscale and it was in the heart of downtown. It had at least 4 stories! It was beautiful weather the whole time. No rain, only sunny and warm. I think they broke some records that weekend.
We went to Whistler Mountain which is the site of the 2010 Winter Olympics. All around you saw the inukshuk (rocks pictured below)which it the emblem of the 2010 Olympics.
We also went to Grouse Mountain, which the call the Peak of Vancouver. They have 2 bear cubs they are raising to release back in the wild once they are grown. The deer that are in the picture was just out in the open. It was a mommy and her baby. I got with a few feet of them and they didn't run off.
The last night there we had dinner with the other people in the company that won that trip too. We took a ferry to the resturant. They served drinks and horderves and they took the long way. Very senic.
