day 03 in mountie-land, (0 comments)
we started our third day with booking a hotel in victoria, where we will be going tomorrow, followed by a decent breakfast at a cafe right across the street of our hotel, named "fillobar". i was surprised of the amount of fruits included in my muesli. full of energy we decided to rent a bike and ride through stanley park[003-072], a huge park that starts at the beach right in front of our hotel. the biking trail - one way only - is about ten kilometres long and goes right along the shore.
on our round trip we came by some totem poles[005-008], the skyline[003-004,009-010], a chinese musician[011], and a girl in a wet suite[013-014] sitting on a stone. we also found a path that lead us right to "beaver lake"[019-028], although we didn't spot a single beaver. too sad.
lionsgate bridge[029-033] was next, then beaches[034-050], and siwash rock[039-044], third beach[045-050] (yop, that is its name), and a coffee break with hungry ravens[051-052,054-056] that were eager for a few bites from our muffins. on our last section of our ride we rode down the lovers walk and down the bridle path[057-072], both with big old trees[057-068].
then we spotted a little mouse[069-070] running along our path. we got off our bikes, unpacked our cameras, and it was still there, not running away. so cute, so tiny.
before returning our bike we drove by the lost lagoon[071-072]. as there was still time to be killed, we took another stroll along the beach[073-081]. at 18:30 it was finally time to board the aircraft for our "vancouver panorama classic" flight[082-172]. the flight lasted about 30 minutes (though it was announced as a 20 minutes trip), with a breathtaking view over vancouver. that flight will really leave a memorable impression.
back at our hotel we had a nice view on a shop on the opposite site of the street called "kimprints". since it looks like there's loads of nice stuff in there, we went there and found really awesome stuff. besides several horseman-items[183-187], like masks and figurines, i also found a little cat keyring that perfectly fits the bicycle light that is of the same producer and also has the shape of a cat head. awesome, and so cute.
another thing we spotted from our hotel room was "vera's burger shack"[193] - a burger restaurant that looks rather shabby from the outside, but we decided to give it a chance. and we were right to do so - the burgers[188-189] were totally awesome. never judge a book by its cover they say, right? what a wonderful day - we really love canada. track for day 03.
