In July, we took a trip to British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest. We had a FANTASTIC time. I’m sorting through the photos and reliving every wonderful moment. (Our summer has been brutal, so we NEEDED a trip to make nice, happy memories!)
We left bright and early on July 19th. We got back to the house with just a few minutes to spare before July 31st rolled over on the calendar. We were exhausted and happy. Our hearts were full. School is just around the corner, and I’m not ready to let summer go. Not yet.
So, without further ado, here are some photos from our trip! (As always, feel free to enlarge the photos by clicking on them!)
I’d anticipated walking 6-miles around the Seawall of Stanley Park. I knew we could easily do that in a day, and we could do so at our leisure. (We’d picked a hotel that was close to the park for this very reason!) There were some letterboxes hidden in the park, and we wanted to add CANADA to our list of destination finds! (And we were successful! Yeah!) We also wanted to see some places where they filmed one of our favorite shows, Psych! (Again, a success!)
We had gorgeous weather (SUNSHINE!),and we loved that the bicyclists and rollerbladers were forced to use a separate path than the pedestrians! We didn’t have to look over our shoulders and could enjoy our walk! What I had NOT anticipated was that all the added trails and stairs we did actually equalled 29,000 (yes, THOUSAND) steps before we got back to our hotel! Yes, that’s 13 miles! For realz, yo! After we collapsed in the room (quite literally), we headed out again that night in search of more adventure. According to the apps on our phones, we ended up with 15 MILES of hiking that day. Not too shabby!
Stay Tuned for Part 2!
