My first RV Show. Lots to learn! Finally, the opportunity to visualize myself in a motorhome and answer those burning questions like: How small of an RV is too small? Is 1 slide out enough? Does it matter which way the bed faces? How much closet do we really need? How much kitchen counter top and pantry space do we need to cook in here? It’s all so exciting to get answers!
Today’s goal before boarding our Princess Sapphire Cruise was to bicycle around the Seawall. The 8.8-kilometre Seawall is one of Stanley Park’s biggest attractions… a scenic 22-km path that lines Vancouver’s waterfront. We check out of the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier and get ourselves back on the Seabus, crossing the Vancouver Harbour, so we can drop off our luggage at The Cruise Ship Terminal at Canada Place.
In Canada, enjoying a scenic Road Trip from Vancouver, B.C. to Whistler today. Stopping at Shannon Falls, witnessing athletic rock-climbers before a photo-op with ‘SAM The Lumberjack’. Now, our 4th stop to look for eagles in Brackenale – World’s Eagle Capital. After this last rest stop, we’ll be non-stop to Whistler.
Right outside Chances Squamish, a casino, stands SAM (Squamish Axe Man) The Lumberjack… standing 10 metres tall… a reminder of the town’s logging history. "SAM was originally created by local artist Nick Tattersfield for the movie – Are We There Yet" –Squamish Days Loggers Sports Festival
"Towering 600m (almost 2000ft) above Squamish, the Stawamus Chief is Canada’s big-wall rock-climbing mecca, attracting keen rock climbers from around the world every summer. Home to hundreds of high-quality multi-pitch crack climbing routes, novice – advanced rock climbers can spend an entire summer exploring the intimidating granite walls, including the The Apron, The Grand Wall, The Slhaney and more.Dating back millions of years, the Chief stands as the 2nd tallest freestanding granite monolith in the world, after the Rock of Gibraltor." –TourismSquamish.com
