This morning my parents and I left Seattle to head up to Vancouver.
First we stopped by the Pike Market Place though, to get in a quick tourist picture 🙂
We left early to ‘try’ and beat some of the Labor Day weekend traffic, but by the time we reached the border, it was busy regardless.
We got into Vancouver not long after lunch time where we checked in to The Fairmont Waterfront property. One that is on my Canadian bucket list 😉
Ahh! So much excitement 🙂 🙂
When we checked in, our room wasn’t ready. Which I half expected because it was only midday. So we dropped off the car, walked up to the Fairmont Pacific Rim to have a quick look in, then walked along the False Creek Seawall all the way to Stanley Park.
When we reached Stanley Park, we decided that the best way to get around was by a horse drawn carriage.
After Stanley Park, we went back to the hotel to pick up the car and drive over to the Capilano Suspension Bridge!
Canada, you are so beautiful!!
That night, we ate at the ARC Restaurant at the Waterfront.
For an appetizer, I had the Pacific Prawn Salad.
Who knew that a simple salad could be so amazing! Yum!
For my main, I ordered the Ross Down Farms Chicken and the Lavendar 75 cocktail 🙂
I love being able to try amazing food like this. People are truly talented. And that cocktail! I’ve never had lavendar in a cocktail before, but it was to die for. It was B.E.A.UTIFUL! And the lavendar is even grown in their own roof top garden. Great work Fairmont!
