Vancouver, with Scottish friends

September 4, 2016 Leave a comment

Two years ago,  we met Robert and Margaret Hunter on a cruise.   They were from Scotland,  and invited us to visit with them in Edinburgh when we got to Scotland.   We did,  and they were excellent hosts. 

As it turns out,  they were going on an Alaska cruise departing from Vancouver about the same time we would be there.  So we were pleased to be able to slow them around my former home city. 

We visited Richmond Night Market, Stanley Park,  Burnaby, and took the gondola up Grouse Mountain.  It was a lot of fun,  and the city rewarded us with nice weather.   Vancouver is right up there as one of our favorite places to be..

You can buy clothes here……

…. and lots of street food.
