Day 3 Vancouver

Woke up feeling refreshed after a great sleep in till nearly 9am..We're off to buy walking boots for Leanne,a soft backpack for us and hopefully a light rain jacket for moi(they speak a lot of French here!)
Success with our shopping so found a cafe that had organic coffee etc.and relaxed for a while..Caught a taxi back to the hotel where we unloaded all our goodies and back we go down the lift to catch another cab to Granville Island which is famous for it's fresh food,galleries,art and all sorts of other wonderful things to spend money on!!
Bought a few nice gifts to take home and I was absolutely thrilled to find a framed print of BevDoolittles famous painting of American Indians riding through an Aspen forest.Getting it shipped home..
Now we're back in our room and having a wind down glass of wine and crackers while the boys have gone down to Rosie's Bar for a beer and to watch the passing parade!!Guess it's guy thing...
Having dinner in tonight and pack our bags ready for an early start to the Railway station to board The Rocky Mountaineer for Banff..Have been advised that there is a picket line there that we will have to pass through so that should be an exciting start to the day !!
