Downtown Vancouver on a beautiful day with your two favorite people, is there anything better? Of course there is and it involves one of my favorite places, Michi Waffle and Espresso House (which may or may not be changing its name to Cafe Michi Premium Espresso). I’ve written about it before so for those of you who haven’t read about it here’s the link
This time Lyndsey, Hayley and I were joined by my Mom and Dad for a Sunday morning brunch. It was terrific as usual and I left with a sweet cafe Americano caffeine high and a belly full of delicious waffles. My Mom and Dad departed for the burbs and the ladies and I set off on a little walk.
We headed for Coal Harbour and the Sea Wall and I whipped out the camera. Nothing beats playing tourist in your own city. Harbour Green Park is great and is often over looked for the more trendy spots in English Bay and Kitsilano. The waterfront has grown immensely over the past ten to fifteen years and is truly modern and beautiful.
We headed down towards the convention center and over to Canada Place, I took a picture of Lyndsey and Hayley in front of the Olympic Cauldron. Hayley was born 8 days before the 2010 winter games began and Lyndsey didn’t get to see the cauldron when it was lit. It was nice to have all three of us there as a reminder of what we were going though while Vancouver was the center of the worlds attention.
We headed for home, which will soon only be a short walk from where we were. I love this city.
