Canada.... Vancouver City Tour

Oscar took B & I for a city tour - more for my benefit than anything cos it was my very first visit. B lived in Vancouver for quite many years before coming to Malaysia.

We dropped by his sister's home to take a look at her home in Port Moody en route to Grouse Mountain. We caught his niece, Madison tip-toeing to reach the candies on the kitchen counter from the night before. Such a doll she is!

Road to Grouse Mountain
Grouse Mountain - we didn't go up via gondola as it was CAD30/adult - the day was hazy. Thus, not worth it. So, we decided to go further to Cypress Lookout Point where it is FREE.
