Totem poles in park

Mermaid statue in bay

Gardens in park

Early "wake up". Sleep Inn at airport starts breakfast at 4am. Took shuttle to light rail and on to Amtrak as planned. Lots of other travelers there at 6:30am! Got seats on left side of train and enjoyed scenery..water views, farmland, then water again all the way to Vancouver.

Took taxi to Buchan hotel in older part of town, pretty and quiet neighborhood. Our room first floor, in back corner with tiny private bath. No AC, only fan.

Walked to Stanley Park, saw totem poles, mermaid statue, aquarium, rose garden, huge beds of zinnias. Amazing bicycle paths, many people rented bikes in town.

Safeway near hotel for wine and Dominoes take out pizza for dinner.
