Vancouver, BC


Tanya and Shane booked an Alaska cruise out of Vancouver, with a few days beforehand to meet with family.  So we stayed in the area so we could join them.  We had a great time meeting family and sightseeing!  Vancouver is one of my favorite cities, of course, I’m prejudiced since I grew up there….

Thanks to Jack and Cindy for putting us up for a few nights, and Al, Cheryl, Wilma and all the others for their help for  a very tasty family dinner!  We had a terrific time, especially meeting all 28 relatives!

Since I didn’t bring my computer, this blog covers 5 days and has been severly limited.  Yet it is still long, some 30 pictures.  Hope you like them!

Cindy and Jack Laninga, our gracious hosts

    beautiful pictures and yes, of course I recognize Linda and Richard. We talked an hour on the phone last wednesday – she’s great!
    Can’t imagine we were there a year ago – homesick already!
