Vancouver Ho

Baby Crumpet took us for a weekend trip to Vancouver B.C.

Highlights included attending the Taiwan Festival (lots of food & music); lots of Chinese food everywhere; brunch at the Granville Island market; picnic at Stanley Park.

We're big fans of Vancouver. Just 2 1/2 hours driving from Seattle, it has the perfect vibe that is part San Francisco, part Hong Kong while retaining the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. We also go there to get our Chinese food fix.

We visited the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park for the first time. Less than 20 minutes outside of the city, the main attraction is a suspension bridge (pictured) originally built in 1889 and stretches 450 feet and 230 feet above ground. They've recently added seven new suspension bridges each 100 feet above ground and circulate the entire park around tall trees. All of us had a great time and we have a lovely picnic with goodies from the Granville Island Market.
