Thursday and Sunday were mostly travel days flying from LAX to Vancouver and back so we really only had 2 days to see the sights. We spent Friday in Vancouver and Saturday in Victoria.
We lucked out as far as weather with barely a drizzle and temps in the 40's.
My favorite part was walking through Stanley Park and seeing the Vancouver skyline.
I've really perfected the "self-timer" function on my camera.
Never mind the funny looks from strangers walking by.
We rode the city bus to Granville Island and scoped out the public market.
Saturday (my birthday) morning, we got up at 6 am and rode a train to a bus to the ferry that would take us to another bus to spend the day in Victoria. Sounds complicated, but we saved ourselves from spending $400 on airfare and actually really enjoyed the ferry ride. We even saw orca whales way off in the distance.
We walked through beautiful gardens.
We got fish and chips at fisherman's wharf.
We went to the infamous Empress Hotel and admired all the beautiful Victorian architecture.
We walked around Beacon Hill Park.
And got chased by mallards.
We took our picture in front of the Parliament building. So pretty!
And with that, our baby moon birthday weekend of fun is over.
