A Travellerspoint blog


View Vancouver and Vancouver Island & The Alascan Highway (Cassiar) to Vancouver on divatmotoros's travel map.

Vancouver deserves much more time than we spent there. It was a beautiful, sunny autumn day, about twice the average temperature this time of the year. We used our day to do a routine maintenance job on our car (oil change, tire rotation at Midas) while we walked and enjoyed the city.

We started our day with a luxury Italian breakfast after dropping off the car. We like the coffee we can make in the trailer but we do not steam milk so enjoying a fluffy cappuccino was special!


Echo was not interested in the huge bird statues, not like the mammoths earlier.


Then we took the Aquabus with a hip-on hop-off ticket to Granville Island where old dock were converted into arts workshops.


We walked to the beach and enjoyed the late summer weather and the views.


We also visited with the larger kids the Maritime Museum which is an interesting display of a large ship from the 40ies and many models and underwater objects including submarines, hard hat diving suits and so on.


After the museum we had fish and chips at "Go Fish", a place mentioned in travel books. There was some queue but it was fairly quick and delicious indeed!


Then we sailed back to pick up our car. We stopped at Stanley Park and had the day view of the same bridge we saw from the campsite at night.


We walked over 12000 steps and the car was also refreshed. Happy to return to this beautiful city some day soon. Now we take the ferry to Vancouver Island for a few days.
