Belated Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Last Friday we had a Thanksgiving Dinner at the revolving restaurant on Robson Street.
I know I already told you about that in my previous blog
post but I would like to tell you more about this awesome night we passed above Vancouver’s roofs. Especially the view was just gorgeous. During the Dinner the restaurant revolved, as its name already implies. So we had a 360-degree-view on several “sights” such as the Lions Gate Bridge, North Vancouver, the Pacific and Stanley Park. Regarding this holiday we had a 3-course-menu with traditional roasted turkey and stuffing. After the Dinner some us went to Steamworks to have some drinks.
As I also mentioned in my last blog post I went to Victoria this passed weekend. We had an amazing time there and a trip from Vancouver to Victoria is definitely worth it! Compared to Vancouver, Victoria is more like a village than a city but that’s why it’s so beautiful. In my opinion our whale watching tour was the best part about the trip. Yes right, we were whale watching and it was just awesome!
Moreover it was not that expensive than we would have expected. Luckily we saw many whales and a lot of seals. Even three of the whales dived under our boat. It was an unlikely feeling because actually the boat must observe a certain safety distance. Probably this safety distance is more for the whales than for the humans but however I had a bad feeling in this moment. At the beginning I thought it’s a kind of boring, that we wouldn’t see any whales and that it wouldn’t be worth it but instead I’m so glad we did it. We also went to Fisherman’s Wharf to feed the seals there. They are so cute! You can buy some fish for them at the small stalls and they aren’t shy quite the contrary they steal the fish out of your hands.
Victoria is probably much more beautiful in the summer than in the fall/winter but you have to go to Victoria during your time in V
ancouver, at least for a daytrip.
Tonight our Pub Night is at Moose’s Down Under. It’s Trivia Night!
See you later!
