Final Vancouver Day

Yesterday we enjoyed beautiful blue skies as we got as much done as possible.

Liz went off to work and we caught the train downtown.
There we saw signs of autumn ...
... while seeing this sunbather insisting it is still summer.
As we walked to where we would take a Zodiac ride, we enjoyed water views and I found a houseboat or two I could live in happily.
Or perhaps I should choose a yacht.
Our Zodiac ride was fun and it only got chilly when we were going 30 mph.
We saw sea planes take off and land.

There were three cruise ships in, but this one will interest Nathan and Riley the most as some day Grandma and Grandpa want to cruise to Alaska with them on this ship.
Other views were beautiful including seeing Bard on the Beach from the water.

After the tour we caught a water taxi to Granville Island.
I had time to look at the food market.  I looked while resisting all sorts of goodies.

The chocolatiers were  making the most of Canada's 150th.
The flower market had hydrangias in all shades of pink, purple, and blue.
There were also these multi-colored roses.  I prefer more natural roses.
And here is today's food that I've never seen or tasted before.
The Fringe show we saw Saor was the first dud for us.  Three people in a crowd of about fifty had some laughs.  We weren't any of those three
I did laugh at the washroom signs though.  Couldn't it just say "all men"?  At least I learned a new word.  I did not know cisgender and I am happy to know I am one.
After the show we met Liz for supper at Mahony & Sons.  We were a little cool on the deck, but the views made up for it.

We celebrated Bob's birthday on the actual day and we jumped the gun on Elizabeth's October 5th birthday as we won't be with her then.

The evening ended with Scrabble.  During our time together Liz and I played seven games.  She won three and I won four - the last one by one point - so I can say we are evenly matched.

Vancouver is a great city where we had a great time.
