The Vancouver Hyatt Regency and 2 soft fluffly queen beds in our room, and yes we used them both! Our king size bed at home was great, and we are getting used to the queen size in Louie (even sharing it with Suzie), but we both thoroughly enjoyed not having to worry about stealing covers and rocking the boat when we rolled over.
Vancouver is a beautiful city as I am sure you have heard. It is the largest port on the West Coast of Canada and has a very active harbor. While Buzz was in meetings I spent one day over at Stanley Park which is 1000 acres overlooking the harbor. I walked the seawall surrounding the park which measures 5.5 miles, passing the aquarium, the totem pole garden, the children's zoo and miniature train, a pool with a couple of slides and a lap swimming area, and beaches mostly for walking (I think it's a little cold for swimming). A beautiful relaxing day enjoying SUNSHINE, but I was sure ready to head back and rest my feet afterwards.
While I was doing this Buzz was attending some meetings and also going on some technical tours which included how the ferries work and the Royal Hudson train which carried the queen across Canada on a recent visit. He went out to a suspension bridge over a canyon which would not normally be high on his list, but forced himself across with his other equally hesitant companions.
It was nice that we had things to do to keep us busy as we are really ready to start our trek eastward. With the weather being as bad as it has been, if we did not have this convention to go to we probably would have changed our itinerary long ago to try to escape the rain and the cold. We did enjoy the comforts of the hotel and the nice surroundings, but it's time to head east, hopefully toward warmth and sunshine.
