A weekend away
We are off to Canada for the weekend...back to the beautiful city Jim and I were married in nine years ago: Vancouver, B.C. It's been way too long since we visited and we're excited to be going back.
Whenever we are in Vancouver, we walk. A lot. It's a beautiful city with wonderful sights, friendly people, and it's very pedestrian friendly:
One of the highlights for me (aside from having my husband to myself for 4 days straight in a beautiful little downtown hotel) is visiting the Vancouver Aquarium. It was the first place I ever saw Beluga whales. A new baby Beluga was born there just last summer. Her name is Tiqa and I can't wait to see her:
Here's a peek into the underwater world of the beautiful Belugas at the Vancouver Aquarium via their own personal Beluga webcam (<-- that's a link).
My mom and step dad have kindly offered to mind the farm while we're gone, so we leave things in excellent hands!
