We really enjoyed our stay in the new AirBnB. After a tasty breakfast we said goodbye to Lori and drove into Vancouver to park our car outside the bicycle shop. We then went to get our bikes and did a little detour around Stanley Park before handing the bikes back to the shop.
Patrick also found this amazing cupcake bakery shop.
We then headed for Whistler. On the way over, we saw very beautiful landscapes from the car seat.
We had a short stop at the Shannon Falls (335m high).
And also at the Brandywine falls (70m high)
Whistler was a little disappointing though. It’s a very clean and well setup town but it all feels very artificial. We only stopped here because it was the host town of the 2010 winter olympics.
I must admit that they did have some very beautiful 3D chalk drawings.
After all this driving up to the north of Canada, the driver needed some rest.
And then we headed to our hotel town, Squamish which looked deserted. It was very calm and open and felt like a real forest town.
Our hotel in Squamish is wonderful. Funny anecdote: it’s run by Dutch people. Who would have thought that we would be able to speak Dutch in America and they would actually understand us :).
Tonight’s dinner… PIZZA!
One evening as the sun went down
And the jungle fires were burning,
Down the track came a hobo hiking,
And he said, “Boys, I’m not turning
I’m headed for a land that’s far away
Besides the crystal fountains
So come with me, we’ll go and see
The Big Rock Candy Mountains
We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay with us in Richmond, BC & we were able to redeem your opinion of Airbnb! Wish you guys could have stayed a bit longer:) Glad to see you stopped at the falls! Take care, Lori & Darcy
