May 3rd, 2008: Vancouver & Victoria, British Columbia (taken by Sarah from Calgary, Alberta!)

8:00 am
Welcome to Vancouver! I awakened to rain...a typical scene here in BC.....quite a change from the snow we are supposed to have here in Calgary tomorrow!

9:00 am
Mat's eye view from our morning yoga class at Open Door Yoga studio in Vancouver. I needed my daily fix & so I dragged my sister along with me. Randy taught a great hatha class...with a twist!

10:30 am
A very grumpy puppy glaring at me from the dashboard of his car as we leave the studio...maybe I can pass on some of my good prana to him?!

11:00 am
Packing the luggage into my versa as we prepare for the drive to the ferry terminal. The spring blossoms are abundant in the city right now.

The rain is heavier as we sit in the lineup waiting to get onto the 1pm ferry over to Vancouver Island...will we make it on?

Yes!!!! We made it! And the rain is now gone...replaced instead by sun & the beautiful scenery of the surrounding Gulf Islands.

My macro lens found lots of interesting shots on the upper deck as well.

Clouds starting to settle in again as we approach Victoria

4:00 pm
Dad enjoying his afternoon cup-o-tea like a true Brit!

Birch tree as seen from our balcony at the Royal Scot Hotel in Victoria

At the Royal Jubilee Hospital visiting my Grandpa....this is the chapel on the hospital grounds. Very quaint.

Flowers in the garden of our hotel as we return from the hospital & head into the restaurant for some dinner.

Catching up with my good friend Tammy at Irish Times pub in downtown Victoria. The nachos and Organic Chilean Wine (...not what you'd expect at an Irish bar, I know!...) were surprisingly good :)
