I share this for no reason other than my family likes seeing pics of our new life and adventures in BC. If you do too, or just want a little Vancouver-inspo keep scrolling.

Capilano Bridge

Capilano bridge is a popular tourist attraction. I was glad that we went first thing in the morning because that meant that we were initially with only a handful of people. The fact that it is November is likely in our favour as well. You can see more about the park here.

There is surprisingly a fair amount to do at the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. The number one attraction is of course crossing the suspension bridge. The bridge was shorter than I was expecting, but that’s perhaps for the best…it shakes a fair amount! The Cliffwalk is a narrow walkway with views over the water and into the forest. The walkways and bridges up in the trees (called “Treetop Adventures”) was our favourite part. The park is setting up for Christmas and the lights were a nice touch. You can see picture below with an aerial view of Santa’s sleigh minus Mr. Clause himself (obviously he’s still working in his shop…).

 This shows you how high the bridge is.

Stanley Park

We walked through some of Stanley park and walked about 1/4 of the seawall. It is a nice park and we agree that we’ll bring our bikes the next time we visit. It would be nice to go around the entire seawall.

Lost Lagoon is a pond (or maybe a lake? Honestly, I don’t know my bodies of water). I’m sharing a picture because it was pretty.

Granville Island Market

This is worth visiting. It’s located by the water and it’s filled with shops and markets. Winnipeggers, this is similar to The Forks.

Winnipeg Jets vs. Vancouver Canucks

Not much to say here. Winnipeg won!

Gastown

We went to Gastown in the evening, which turned out to be in our favour. This meant that there were way less people and the Christmas lights made an appearance. The Gastown Steam Clock is neat to see and adds to the charm of the street. Learn more about Gastown here.
