Crete Pilgrimage 2016 - Day 9

Day in Vancouver


Our hotel was on the waterfront of Vancouver, so it was s short stroll along the waterfront to get to Stanley Park. We stopped at a nice French cafe (Cafe Villagio) on the way for breakfast. At the Park we signed up for the horse-drawn carriage tour, talked nicely to the horses and then trotted around the park. We visited the totem poles we had seen in early 1986.
