North to Alaska: Bye-bye Vancouver

One of my other destinations at the weekend is to join Tess Karlinski for a cup of coffee and her latest traveling escapade. In her latest series, Tess is sharing her trip to Alaska and the stops along the way. This week some window shopping before joining the cruise liner that will take Tess northwards. Always a delight to read and as a sidenote.. Tess is so detailed in her posts that it saves you thousands in fares and hotel accommodations.. I have no need to visit China now for example. However, I have always wanted to go to British Columbia and Alaska.. lead the way Tess.

How the Cookie Crumbles

I took one last look around before we left the Lookout Tower. So much to see here. Magnificent Mount Seymour hovers over the city, regal and imposing.

On a clear day, Mount Baker exchanges salutations with Seymour though miles and miles away.

Vancouver is widely known for Chinatown, its history, food, and people.

I love Granville Island Public Market open seven days a week.  The food markets and smells, the custom crafts, artsy shops, and live music make it a fun destination on shopping day, or any day, I haven’t been there for years but it’s a definite must-visit destination while in Vancouver.

Time to kill before Jean picked us up at the Lookout, Mary and I took our time and browsed some of the shops. Even she wasn’t tempted to shop seriously. We did have the upcoming cruise and who knew what temptations might overpower our good intentions.
