vancouver, b.c.

At dinner earlier this week with the kids, talk turned to planning our next family vacation. Catherine suggested a trip to the British Isles, Grace wants to return to Tennessee, and Matthew would like to go to France. I don’t foresee any overseas travel in our immediate future, and apparently, neither does Jim, because he’s proposed returning to Canada. Since we saw Ontario and Quebec this past summer, he’d like to take a flight to Vancouver and see the Canadian Rockies. He had a friend who went last year and enjoyed it quite a bit. The mountains my kids have seen thus far aren’t anywhere near as big as the Rockies, so I’m sure my little flat landers would be taken with them.

In the winter of course, there’s skiing and other snow sports to keep you busy, and in the summer there’s hiking, biking, boating, and more. Just outside of Vancouver is Hell’s Gate, where you can take an airtram over the white water rapids below. Since Matthew didn’t like the Maid of the Mist at Niagara (too wet) perhaps he’d like a birds eye view of rushing water instead?
