West Coast Wonder: Day 10

Yesterday we visited Stanley Park!
We met up with a new friend (Nelson, the pastor of Artisan Church) in the morning for coffee, and then hopped on a bus to the park. We didn't realize how big Stanley Park is! We figured the best way to get around the seawall was by bike...so we went off to rent one.

That's right...one. We took on the challenge of the tandem bike, and while it was a big struggle at first (with Kevin being adventurous and speedy, and me being so cautious), we eventually found our groove and made our way around the entire seawall. It was so much fun, and one of our favorite parts of this entire trip!
Stanley Park is so beautiful and peaceful. The views were amazing, and even though it was a bit cloudy, we were in awe during our whole bike ride! If it had been a sunny day, it would have been nice to bring a blanket and lay down in the park for a few hours, but I guess that will have to wait until our next visit. Here are a few pictures from our afternoon:
ALSO! We met up with our dear friend Terri last night! She's going to spend the last two days of our trip with us! We hit up Yaletown, and found a great little bar there, Raw Canvas. It's a wine bar and an art studio in one; really cool. We're so excited to spend another full day with Terri! Tomorrow we hope to hit up Granville Island...
