    Time for a couple of more uploads (whew! They take a LONG time to upload!!)... Here is a shot of a seaplane preparing for take off. Apparently, we are fascinated by all things sea or air related.

    Beautiful photos, Tink! Thanks!

    Canada always impresses me also. On the trips I've made up there, the whole place seems so clean and neat in comparison with US cities.

    Hope you have a marvelous cruise. I'd really love to do an Alaskan cruise sometime. (Although I'd do it on Disney).

    Would you care to learn to sail? Fly? Row? That's what these folks are doing on a gloriously beautiful Saturday. Learning to row...

    This lonely little tomato plant was growing in a tiny crack in the pavement on the heavily trafficked walkway by the cruise ship terminals. We'll suppose it got there courtesy of a gull... wonder if it will ever bear fruit?

    This is the oyster bar at Joe Fortes the single best place for seafood in Vancouver (well, that is our opinion of course, but it's shared by many)! We had our very first raw oysters there. We are now devotees for life! Don't ask me what possessed me to order them, but once I committed, I was going to eat them! At the first beautiful taste, I told Herself we were in serious trouble (they are NOT inexpensive). She got brave and tried one too, and voila! Oyster lovers born! We've always loved them cooked, mind.

    There wasn't enough room to get a proper shot, and Herself won't be happy that I posted this one, but I wanted you to see the beautiful Kammamoto oysters that we had. They are quite small, and very deep shelled which holds all the lovely liquor. They are crisp and not at all "raw" feeling in your mouth. We preferred them with the mignonette sauce (which we had had before with Oysters Rockefeller) over any of the other two (a soy based sauce, and the cocktail/horseradish sauce mix).

    Tom, that is so true. The city is so very clean! I don't really know how they do it as you don't see street sweepers, ect. You do see any number of people collecting plastic drink bottles (and glass ones too) for the deposits. That helps, I'm sure.

    Wendy, where in Canada? I really only know the east coast, but as you can see have fallen in love with the west coast now too! (It really is quite like the east coast).

    It's changed my mind completely about the "dark and forbidding" Pacific Ocean. I was an Atlantic snob.

    I couldn't eat raw oysters, it's just the thought of it I'm glad you enjoyed them though. Sea food is always so much nicer when it comes straight from the quay to the restaurant

    Have you had scallops I know how much you like them and I just wondered if they were good as well.
