The day that Tom arrived in Vancouver was grey and miserable. But, being good travellers, we didn't let the rain stop our adventures. After purchasing a couple of umbrellas, we headed for the water taxi terminal to take us to Granville Island, where we could spend at least some of the day inside staying dry. After wandering through the market, shops and galleries, we bunkered down at the Granville Island Hotel for lunch and beer tasting. Finally the rain stopped and we were able to continue our adventures. Another water taxi took us to Yaletown where we checked out the shops (Marimekko tights for me) and looked for a restaurant for that evening. We walked back to the hotel and promptly decided to crash - Malaysian take-away, local beer and a movie, all enjoyed on our respective beds in the hotel room. An early night and prayers for no rain followed.
