Kate was not sure she would walk across the bridge. However, when we got there, we realized most of the things to do were on the other side, so she walked across with us. The bridge was not too bad. The worst part was people stopping to take selfies on the bridge. Everyone behind them had to wait while they indulged their narcissism.
Once across the bridge, Sarah and I did the tree line walk. We climbed some stairs and walked along the upper branches of the trees. It was pretty cool. Kate stayed on the ground.
After we came down, all three of us hiked along the trails and enjoyed the temperate rain forest. We crossed the bridge again, waiting for more selfies, but we made it across.
Sarah and I walked the cliff walk. It was a glass floored walkway attached to a sheer rock face suspended over a ravine. The views were nice. When we finished the cliff walk, we bought some poutine from the lunch counter and split it. Poutine is french fries topped with cheese curds and gravy. A very Canadian dish.
That afternoon, Kate and I went to the liquor store to stock up on wine for the cruise. Sarah hung out at the pool to get a tan. Along with wine, I bought a bottle of Cuban rum. I wanted to try it, because we are not able to get Cuban rum in the U.S. Unfortunately, it was not as good as Myer’s rum, but at least now I can say I have had Cuban rum.
When we got back to the hotel, I decided to practice with my new 150 - 500 zoom lens. I set it up on a tripod and took some pictures in the distance. I downloaded the photos on to the computer to see how they looked. As I looked through them, I realized there was an eagle sitting in the trees. I got back on the camera and tried to get a photo of the eagle. Unfortunately, I was not able to get a clear shot of it before it flew away.
That evening, Sarah and I went for a walk while Kate stayed back at the hotel and worked. Sarah and I ate dinner at a small hole in the wall taqueria. The food was excellent. We each had several tacos. We ordered a mushroom quesadilla to go and brought it back for Kate. She really enjoyed it. I hoped to get back to the taqueria, but we never did. It was called La Casita Tacos. (www.lacasitatacos.com)
When we got in, I wrote an email to Steve and Teresa letting them know how to get in touch with us on the ship and at the hotel when we returned to Vancouver. Teresa wrote back saying she was coming to Vancouver for a church related conference. It turns out she is flying into Vancouver the day we get back from our cruise. We will all be in Vancouver at the same time! We decided we would all get together for dinner on Monday June 22. What a wonderful coincidence that we will all be in the same town thousands of miles from our homes at the same time!
