Day 4: More Vancouver (or, now I know what the fuss is all about)

Today was the day we actually saw Vancouver city. Piali had booked us all on a bus tour, plus it was little Jaian’s birthday, so we had a family day out.
Wet and rainy didn’t dampen our spirits, especially once we got off the bus to explore Stanley Park. There’s green, and there’s green and there’s all kinds of green! Feast your eyes:

Just some random shots to show that we weren’t the only ones to appreciate the refreshing weather:

Some blues followed the greens – as we took up the boys’ call and waddled off to see some African penguins at the aquarium, plus some exciting fish from around the Canadian arctic.

After dinner with Aunty Dagmar, Souvik & I took in an exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery on Matisse and modern masters, and got home later to an absolutely sinful birthday cake:

If there’s just one more thing I wish to do in Vancouver at this point, it’s cycling in Stanley Park. Don’t know if there will be time for that, but I’ve already seen that if I pray hard enough, my wishes do come true!
