Vancouver Views

As many of my travel blogging friends are heading off to Keystone, Colorado for the TBEX 2012 conference this weekend, I’m thinking back to last year’s event in Vancouver, British Columbia. So for Travel Photo Thursday, here’s a small selection of some Vancouver views that I got to see in that beautifully photogenic city last June.

    I was so new to blogging last year that I feel like I wasted having TBEX in my backyard. Hopefully I’ll get to the next one – I can’t wait until they announce the next venue! Thanks for the nice shots. They are a good represenation of Vancouver.

      Beautiful indeed, Marcia. Lots of other pretty places I didn’t get to on this trip. Visited Stanley Park several years ago — very nice!

    I registered in advance for this year’s TBEX I was so pumped after Vancouver. Then the high airfares grounded me, so I am also thinking back to Vancouver. I just wish that this TPThursday group had started prior to that so that I could have met some of you face-to-face! As it was, there wasn’t enough time to meet everyone. . . thanks for bringing back some good memories.

    Viewing this series brings back memories of my own visit to Vancouver in the latter part of last year, Cathy. It certainly is a delightful city, with its beautiful waterfront and delightful Granville Island.

    I have been to Vancouver a couple of times, most recently for a huge international conference of ESL teachers. We spent a few days at the convention center. It is such a beautiful city!

    Looks like you had good weather in my hometown of Vancouver! Lovely photos (Granville Island is pretty much my backyard – we go there almost every weekend).

      Aw, thanks Caanan. I would love to meet you guys in person. It’s been great getting to know you in the blogosphere.

    I can’t believe it’s been a year since I met you already – and almost a year since I left Vancouver for good. Time is flying way too fast. The photos bring back good memories.

    I have heard so many great things about Vancouver, and it’s nice to see some ‘real life’ pictures from there too. I have a feeling that when I make it to Vancouver, I’ll have to stop at that public market… 🙂

    Oh, Vancouver! The parents of my husband are living there, and we plan to visit them this summer! I am so excited, your shots are really beautiful, I want to visit all those fascinating places!

    Thanks for writing about my birthcity so well, Cathy. 😉 When you visited Granville Island, did you check out the *size* of those hungry seagulls ready to swoop? Open food must be guarded while eating outside, should one dare to tempt fate.
