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.


12:00pm
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?


1:00pm
Yes!!!! We made it! And the rain is now gone...replaced instead by sun & the beautiful scenery of the surrounding Gulf Islands.


2:00pm
My macro lens found lots of interesting shots on the upper deck as well.


3:00pm
Clouds starting to settle in again as we approach Victoria


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


5:00pm
Birch tree as seen from our balcony at the Royal Scot Hotel in Victoria


6:00pm
At the Royal Jubilee Hospital visiting my Grandpa....this is the chapel on the hospital grounds. Very quaint.

7:00pm
Flowers in the garden of our hotel as we return from the hospital & head into the restaurant for some dinner.

8:00pm
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 :)
