Vancouver Photos Part I

Hello All!

I thought I would drop a little line to say I am still here, but up to my eyeballs in unpacking and minor renos to my place, and helping Mum paint the basement apartment for her. I have soooo much sewing stuff down to Mum's existing home now that I am going down there each chance I get to throw more stuff into rubber maid containers and taking them over to my place. Right now the sewing room is more of a place to pile boxes and containers than an actual sewing room, but that will change. I do miss sewing and I am getting major withdrawls!!! I can't wait to start sitting in my sewing room after all the unpacking is done and get back to my projects. For now, my sewing room time will be spent unpacking all the boxes and containers and putting things where I want them. I know I will be doing alot of purging as I organize my way through the chaos. I might need to tackle that room with a bottle of red wine to get me through!! LOL

I thought I would show you a photo or two of our trip to Vancouver and Whistler. Trevor and I took a TON of photos and video and I still haven't really sat down to really look at them and clean them up. There are many that are too blurry to use and I haven't been able to get round to deleting the ugly photos! But I thought I would share with you some of my favourites during my first glance over the photos!

This sushi restaurant became one of our favourite places to eat. I believe we went there 3 times and it was only a 5 minute walk from our friend's condo downtown. In this photo is Trevor and our great friends Dennis and Lauren

The Vancouver Aquarium

Me and Trevor

I didn't think these crocodiles were real. They looked silver glazed. But I saw an eye twitch so they are very much alive!! LOL

Say Cheese Mr. Croc!!

Big Fishy!!

More Fishies

Iloved the Jelly Fish Exhibit!!!

These were such cute little monkeys at the aquarium

This is on a First Nations Reserve and it was amazing! We hiked along suspension bridges from tree to tree!! I felt I was in the Ewok Village from Star Wars!

Such beautiful totem poles

My addition to the totem pole

Trevor's scary pose in the totem pole!!! Funny guy!

Big hugs after we made it across the bridge!!!

Trevor and Dennis hanging on for dear life as they make their way across the bridge!

The crooked fishing shack we found after our walk through the suspension bridges in the trees

Big Bear Hug!

There is a FABULOUS little shop downtown Vancover on Turlow called CUPCAKES!! All they sell are cupcakes and might I say YUMMMMMYYYY!!!! This was a variety pack we bought but we also bought the bigger versions of the coconut and the chocolate mint cupcakes!! sigh... I wanna go back to Vancouver!!!

My favourite was this coconut one. It has a cream cheese frosting on it!

I will post more again shortly.. I am heading out with some friends with work tonight and going to the local Yuk Yuks comedy club. I am in need of a break from the house!!

Til Next Time!
