I honestly tried hard not to start off talking about the weather again, but this time it involves sunshine, so I hope I am forgiven!! 🙂 For our little trip to Queen Elizabeth Park on Sunday, our group of 12 was happy to probably get the nicest of what fall in Vancouver has to offer. Colored leaves in every shade from red to yellow and almost perfectly blue skies made this afternoon all the better! It is not only one of the prettiest parks in Vancouver but also the former geographical center of the city as well as its highest point in elevation. Stunning views over downtown and all the way to the north shore mountains were a highlight for sure. Once up there, we also entered the Bloedel Conservatory, which is a tropical garden under a dome-like roof and home to hundreds of free-flying birds and exotic plants. For a small admission fee, we got to see tons of cool stuff and felt like little explorers looking for hidden animals and walking under giant banana leaves. We even found some real bananas but they were not all that giant… 😉 Check out all the pics on facebook and Flickr!
I’m sure you know that last weekend was the Halloween weekend too! Have you lived it up already or rather wanna save yourself for the actual Halloween on Wednesday this week? I am not the biggest fan of carnival at home, so I was a little hesitant to get dressed up but in the end, looking ridiculous was so much fun and I am excited for Wednesday at The Blarney Stone already! It will be our very last chance to take part in this North American tradition – we better go nuts and rock this place!! 😀
What did you do on the weekend? Anything cool or special you would like to share with us?
Have a great week!
