Vancouver Day 2 & 3

Day 2 Our second full day in Vancouver started with french toast and strawberries which was well needed as we had a day of cycling ahead of us!

Not only is Stanley park one of the most iconic things to do you can’t really beat a seawall especially when it has a wonderful cycle path.
