One of the great things about having out-of-town company is that it can make you become a tourist in your own town.
The end-of-September weather couldn't have been better, so we made our way over to the North Shore for some of the sights, including the gondola ride up Grouse Mountain.
The view above (the far away part) is what the city of Vancouver looked like, part of it even blanketed in cloud cover. The ships anchored out in the harbour look like toys.
To ensure the full touristical experience, we stayed long enough to watch the lumberjack show. Corny jokes, but lots of fun -- and the guys' skills were certainly impressive.
We even stopped in at the Cleveland Dam, site of the watershed that provides the Lower Mainland with its delicious tap water.
I wonder, do I need to send myself a postcard?
