B.C. Vacation - Day 8

Caught the 10:50 a.m. ferry back to Horseshoe Bay, then drove to Stanley Park in Vancouver. The park is absolutely beautiful with miles of trails and things to do. We planned on spending a full day there but only fit a ride on the mini train and a fish and chip lunch at Prospect Point Lookout.

We checked into our hotel -- the Westin Grand -- and just relaxed a little bit. I totally recommend this place. We had a comfortable room on the 29th floor overlooking the harbor, and they made the kids feel really special -- complete with back packs, a hat, and postcards to color. That night we walked around the area, and had a great dinner at Tropika. H & C wanted to try the crab. They weren't huge fans, but we were! Came back to the room, and waiting for C was an early birthday present from the Westin -- a tiramisu in a chocolate cup. See what I mean?
