    And I want to move there! It is incredible!!!! I had an absolute blast and really didn't want to come home. I kept hoping that my airline would go under while I was there.

    I took some pics but you should know.....there are a couple that are either between PG13 and R or just flat out R. One in particular (on page 3 is labeled Couldn't Not take it .....or something.) You can't really see in the thumbnail version but it is a woman in a thong who really shouldn't have. I didn't take the picture to be mean but it was like one of those things that horrify you but you just can't seem to look away. Also, there are pics of various people with a t-shirt. I got the shirt here at a bar when they had an activity. The shirt isn't technically obscene but it is sexual in nature and could possibly offend.

    Also, there will be a couple that you won't "get". On my other groups, we were talking about all of these feet (in shoes) that keep washing up on shore in Vancouver. I was getting warned to come back with both feet, yadda yadda. One of the beaches we went to had a shoe just lying on the beach. Nothing was in it (we checked) but we HAD to take a picture because of all of this.

    Also in regards to the pics......hehehehehe......I didn't see Raoul but would a Claudio do? :winks:

    Star and Susie......I didn't see any t-shirts but there are a couple of pics in there for you. No moose poop either but I SWEAR that the tiny plane I took for the first leg of the flight.............had bird poo on the back of the seat in front of me.

    The area up there is just beautiful. I've never seen anywhere else where you can be on a beach, turn around and see a pine forrest. The range of possible environments in such a small area is just wild.

    OH!!! We went to this ice cream/gellato place that has 212 different flavors. They had your normal flavors, some interesting combos and then there were the gormet flavours. Roasted garlic, basalmic vinegar, fennel, corn, lavender, asparagus.....stuff like that. I tried the corn but that didn't turn out to be such a good mix.

    Anyhoo....I had a BLAST and can't wait to go back!!!!

    Here's the link to the pics

    I'm not entirely sure. I DID go through a tunnel but I don't know if it was that or not. I um....got a bit lost and turned around once I hit Vancouver. :916blusher: Then I took a completely different way back down to the border and never did find out for sure.

    I would have been happy with just a postcard of the missing bridge! She was so excited to get to Vancouver that she forgot about it. And I thought we were somewhere on the top of her priority list. Guess not! :tongue:

    I saw NO pictures! No Maple leaf. No hot Canadian men. No donkeys, not even a cut out of a magazine. I must therefore rely on my own imagination -

    (boyyyyyy are you in trouble) :surprise::tongue:

    Another "can't wait to get home and see these pics".

    Especially the thong one. That's gotta be good.

    Glad you had a good time. Count me in on those that are green.

    Well I didn't open the one that said DO NOT enlarge because it said do not enlarge but when I saw that SHARI had opened it I went back and opened it (see I'm NOT ALWAYS the bad one) lol.

    Um - Lots of fertility things there huh? LIke you "rubbing" the fertility post. ARE YOU NUTS? Girl I would have been a blur running fast as the wind in the other direction.......screaming.....nooooooooooooooooooo like Mr. Bill from Saturday Night Live. NO Noooooooo not the fertility post.....noooooooooooo.

    And then once again we see the native artwork and that statue (one before the cow art) and i gotta think - uh huh. Fertility again.

    THEN you show us Raou.....Claudio....and well it all just fits.

    I LOVED the mermaid rattles - never have seen those so that was a treat. And pirates used to beat people with them? Are the kids in Van couver well behaved? I'm thinking - just go to the beach if they are not.

    I LOVED the cool viking ship. ARggggggggghhhhhhh matey.

    And the most favorite thing was that you went out of your way to find something like a donkey for me. Thank you. The cow painting - I LOVED that. I bet it went for a pretty penny too. Well worth it.

    Thanks for allowing me to live and travel vicariously through you. I can now say I've been to Vancouver in my mind. And the Maple Leaves? OMG I plant maples everywhere. I have about 6 babies growing in my window greenhouse now. Love them!

    THanks Mustang.

    See! I WAS thinking of you guys!!!

    And yeah, lots of fertility stuff. Seems the natives in that area were obsessed a bit. And I wasn't "rubbing" the one. I was, uh....gripping it.
