Beware, the rest of this will be photo happy
But on to my awesome, awesome weekend. I took the long way to Vancouver, as my friend Aaron didn't get of work till 3:30, and I had plenty of time. Some people like to drive for the speed, I on the other hand, love winding roads, also I found a trail I don't remember seeing before, so of course I had to take it, and it
|Random waterfall, just because|
led me to this wonderful old bridge. When I arrived at the coast I met up with Aaron, dumped my stuff at his place and then we went to Ikea and Metrotown (huge mall) to shop, didn't actually buy anything, but it was fun to look.
We spent the next day on what I'll call Aaron's "let me show you all the cool places I've found" tour. I bought a day pass for local transit and we spent the day wandering the city on foot, by bus and by skytrain.
We met up with his friend Nick for supper at Aaron's new favorite restaurant and then got more of a tour from Nick as he's lived there longer, it included the Olympic Torch which I've wanted to go to for four years.
Then they came up with the brilliant idea of renting a Mini Cooper for a couple hours and checking out some Supernatural shooting locations. Nick doesn't understand our obsession with the show, but he was happy to drive..
Then I went onto Cirque, and it was amazing, as they always are, if you ever get a chance, go see them. It doesn't matter which show, they are all awesome.
I came home the next day, took the short route this time, about 5 hours if you don't stop and wander, which of course I always do. I had to stop at the Othello tunnels, a pathway along an abandoned railway that leads into the amazing Coquihalla canyon.
As for what I watched, this was mainly before I left
Merlin S03 E09- S04 E02 Ohhh Morgana is getting deliciously evil.
Brenda Starr - This is a thoroughly ridiculous movie, I love it, of course have a suave Timothy Dalton in it doesn't hurt.
