Margaret, William and I flew to Vancouver today. To those people we know in Vancouver, sorry we didn't call. We just wanted to have a bit of an adventure by ourselves for the day, and we did. We took a cab to our hotel, the historic Sylvia Hotel, just off the beach. We spent the afternoon walking around, taking pictures, eating lamb shawarma on street cafe tables, climbing rocks on the beach, and getting away from most of our electronics (which is one reason why this blog is being posted a week later).
