Snap Impressions of Vancouver
There wasn't enough time between disembarkation from the cruise ship to the time we needed to board our flight to Seattle to tour Vancouver. I did try to squeeze in a bus tour but the Princess folks said nope so that was out.
However, our very nice shuttle bus driver took us on a little detour to see a little of the town since it was Labor Day and traffic was much lighter than usual which allowed him a few extra minutes for arriving at the airport on time. Bonus. Our brief drive through showed Denny and me that we needed to come back for future exploration of this lovely city.
Arriving at port pre-dawn.The pier looked like a ship under full sail.
I believe this is the Convention Center as seen from the ship.
It was a rainy morning when we arrived, but sometimes that makes for dramatic photographs. This is an area at the port where they unload and load shipping containers.
A bit of architectural detail high on the side of a building downtown.
This should look familiar to fans of the Olympics.
Our bus driver referred to this as Snow White's house. This really is a house in the middle of a residential area in Vancouver.See why we need to return?
