Alas, we've come to our final day in the beautiful city of Vancouver, BC.
(You can scroll down past this post to see Days 1 & 2, or just click here:
Billy and I were driving back to Seattle Monday afternoon, to spend the night at my sister's house and drive back to Portland on Monday, so we were ready to adventure for as long as possible.
We started by meeting Holly, Daryl, Matt, & Ruth (the bride's family, Billy's aunt/uncle/cousins) for breakfast. We walked down to their hotel (about 8 blocks from ours) and I made Billy pose with the massive moose mountie (say that 5 times fast!) in the lobby.

Fun sidenote - while walking along the street looking for a good lunch spot, I definitely got asked out by someone. He was asking Billy and I if we knew of a good coffee shop, and then looked directly at me and asked "Would you be interested in getting coffee with me sometime?" After I stared at him blankly for a few seconds, he motioned to Billy and I and said, "Oh, are you two a couple?" We said yes and he quickly vanished. Billy said I should have gone with him, to get a free cup of coffee. Thanks, husband.
After our fun Canadian encounter, we decided to go to a Southern BBQ place for lunch. Yeah, I know. BBQ in Canada? But it was delicious!

On our way back, we biked through the convention center area, where they have this giant raindrop sculpture thing.
Before we left, I calculated the mileage (it was in km on the map). But I did my math wrong and at first came up with 15 miles. Luckily, it was only about 6, or we would have been there a long time, at the pace we went!
