Greetings from Vancouver!

We just got to the hotel, 27th floor, overlooking the bay. I am sitting enjoying boat and seaplane traffic while MM went a block away to the IGA for Cokes and fruit for a snack lunch before an early dinner.

The HOHO trolley can be boarded across from the hotel, so we will do that, probably after our morning coffee with a BSP sister at 10 tomorrow.

The flights were mostly uneventful. We had a lady captain on the leg from Minneapolis to here...pretty neat...but left 30 min late bc the toilet system had a malfunction...and that would not be pleasant for a 3+ hour flight! The mechanic did some system rebooting and got it to at last behave.

Then queue for customs upon arrival was long, so we got a bit of exercise going through the ropes course. It was no problem, and then we rode the train to City Centre and got off there, but MM had misjudged the distance from there to the hotel, so we took a taxi. No big deal, except that he let us off at the wrong hotel and we had to hoof it a few blocks to our actual destination. Oh well, stuff happens and we are here, ready to rest our tootsies for a bit.

Ah, my special room service just arrived, bless his heart. He noticed a church marquee next door for some jazz music at 4, then candlelight music at 7. Sounds like a plan!

Stay flexible in traveling . Yep. We do.

Life is good, eh!

Sounds like a plan. I wish I culd really enjoy traveling... Mostly I hate anything that involves driving on highways. I can deal with flying to my destination but not a real long flight. Good thing I at least love cruising. :)

Yay for MM and nearby entertainment, under budget even! ;)

Have yourselves a lovely day, eh? xoxo
