Vancouver Trip - The Holiday: Day Four
On our final day in Vancouver, we headed over the Lions Gate Brige again, for a pleasant drive up to Horseshoe Bay.
From Horseshoe Bay, you can catch ferries to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, to Bowen Island and to Langdale on the Sunshine Coast. It is also the starting point of the Sea to Sky Highway that hangs on cliffs as it winds its way along Howe Sound to Squamish, Whistler and Pemberton.
After lunch, we headed back to Vancouver where we took a look at the Steam Clock and had a stroll around Canada Place.
We got a good view of the float planes taking off and landing from Canada Place.
Overall, Vancouver is a fantastic place to visit but, for us anyway, maybe it is busy enough to remind us a little too much of life in the South East of the UK. It helps to reinforce that Okotoks, Calgary and surrounds feel so much like home to us.
