In Vancouver


Wednesday, June 25, 2014

The train ride from Toronto to Vancouver was fun... exciting... gorgeous... comfortable... relaxing... I could go on and on. Some of the highlights include watching a thunderstorm with lots of lightning over the prairie, the Rocky Mountains, crossword puzzles and Scrabble with my niece. Sunrises, good food (though I think I gained five pounds!), meeting new friends, and coming into Vancouver along the Fraser River. This afternoon after we checked into the hotel we walked abuot 5 miles to Little India and had real Indian food and looked at sarees and punjab suits. Tomorrow we hope to meet up with a Sparkfriend and walk the Stanley Park Seawall. Tigan is napping... hence the time I have to get online and update everyone on how things are going. It is weird... I am 40, and she is 21, and I have more stamina. I guess all that exercise paid off. Also when I travel I tend to sleep a lot less than I do when I am home.

Not certain when I will get online again. I hope all my friends are having a great week. I know I am!

I will post in more detail when I get home. All I have to use is a tablet, and I am not used to using it to go online. I promise stories when we get home July 21st.

Take care!

    Enjoy your trip and stay safe and healthy dear. Yes I agree I guess the younger people tend to be more relaxed than the older ones.... I see that at home where my DDIL and GDILs are more active than my DGGC
