We jumped on the Monorail with Matthew, picking up Katie and Dave on the way, as we headed towards the markets in the middle of Seattle. Stopped off at Ludi’s on Pike for a brilliant hash brown and bacon breakfast. Then we wandered through the markets, along the waterfront to the Curiosity shop (which was nothing much, in my opinion). Then quickly into the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) shop before meeting the others back at the hotel, and we found a tremendous fountain on the way back.
We then drove to Canada, meeting a pleasant but firm border guard as we tried to get across. Anca had had to leave us in Seattle as she had some last minute visa issues, so we were down another person at this point.
Vancouver was very impressive as we approached, such an impressive city by the bay with mountains in the background.
After driving down Robson Street, we got to our rooms at Robson Suites. Walking back up Robson, we found Earl’s on a recommendation from a local. And it was fantastic, being fairly Penny friendly with amazing food and great service.
