Trip to Vancouver Canada

Me and my girlfriend went on our first big trip, and my first trip out of the country. I've always wanted to go to Canada and it was nice actually getting some use out of my passport.

We decided to do the trip up in stages. The first day we both had to work, so we drove up to Lacey WA. and stayed at her parents place. The next day we went up to Seattle and checked out the King Tut exhibit at the science center.

No, this is not a giant keyhole to some tomb, this is a toilet seat.

Gold fingers, toes, and shoes were placed on the dead before burial.

This was a view from the condo we stayed at in Canada.

This is one of the water taxis that frequents the bay so that people can easily travel to the island across the way.

On our first day we ventured over to Granville Island on one of the water taxis to check out the market and just explore a bit.

On our second day we wandered around some more.

Not sure what this is, but I love film and sculpture so I had to snap a pic.

Went down to Chinatown and the Chinese Gardens.

I've been to the Japanese gardens in Portland, and they both very similar.

We went down to Steamtown (or Cracktown as we were calling it), and checked out the Steam Clock. We actually walked up on it a couple minutes before it started to do it's song and dance.

On the third day we took the Water Bus over to the other island so that we could check out the Capilano Suspension Bridge. It was really beautiful out there. According to one of the diagrams they have up there, the bridge is like two jumbo jets (from wing to wing) long. The whole thing was reinforced with steel cabling, but when you're walking across that thing along with everyone else (and kids who like to jump up and down on it) that thing gets wobbly.

The bridge was pretty busy when we got there so, we did the Cliff Walk first.

After that, we crossed the bridge and did the Treetops Adventure. This thing reminded me of the Ewok village from Star Wars.

After the bridge, we chilled at the Water Bus docks for a while and just took in the view for a bit.

On the fourth day we wandered around some more and checked out the beach area some.

This was probably some of my favorite time that we spent up there. Just sitting and relaxing on the beach. It was warm, not noisy.. just really peaceful out there.

We had no idea what these guys were. It seems like there are a lot of statues and sculpture up there with no explanation. Dunno if it's done just to mess with tourists or what.

Came across this mini-mart on our walk back, and no, Bruce Campbell wasn't there.

On our final day we went walking again and came across this area near the beach that sort of celebrates the Inukshuk. There was an area near this statue where people have built their own Inukshuk, so we hopped on the bandwagon and did the same.
