Whistler 3/3

We started our journey home by heading back down to Vancouver on Friday morning and spending the day adventuring around the city. And what a lovely city to spend the day exploring. We all thoroughly enjoyed seeing the waterfront, taking a water taxi to Granville Island Public Market, driving through Stanley park and taking in the Vancouver Aquarium.  I know that Vancouver will be on our list of places to return to.

we grabbed lunch at the Granville Island Public market. 

We also found an amazing little spot after lunch appropriately called The Adventure Zone. It was a kid friendly building with sweet shops, toy and bookstores, as well as arcade games. Ollie had a blast playing a few games and picking out a cheap, plastic, I mean truly amazing toy with his winning tickets.

OSGEMEOS (the twins), a Brazilian public art duo created a monumental, 360-degree, 70-foot tall mural on Granville Island. They also did and installation in Dewey Sq. in Boston entitled 'The Giant of Boston' in conjunction with their ICA Boston exhibition.

We stopped in Stanley Park on our way to the Aquarium to see the First Nation's totems.

We had the intention of wandering around the Vancouver Aquarium until we headed to dinner but we quickly realized upon our arrival that the aquarium was only open for another hour! So it was more of a speed walk through the exhibits but we still enjoyed seeing as much as we could. The jellyfish were especially spectacular.  


Chatting. I am getting so excited to see their sweet little relationship grow.

We headed out to dinner and then it was off to bed and then a long day of travel on Saturday. Cheers to vacations!
