Well I'm not crushed that I don't get to go to Bob's burgers because then I'll be going to the Abbotsford airport cafe for the best burger and pie around.

But seriously, you cleared up something I was wondering about. Most posts about US buyers picking up and heading off don't seem to mention coming to Vancouver and doing some sightseeing. Since the Vancouver area isn't too shabby in tourist things to see I was wondering why almost everyone headed South immediately.

Most of the photos were taken with a Canon SX-50.

Well then, you need to try the pies at the Chilliwack airport ............. usually a queue to get in but well worth it.

Ron you bring up a very good point about heading back south. A had a brief visit in Vancouver before boarding a cruise ship. It's a beautiful city that I hope to one day return to.
My reason for not spending time in Canada...
We picked up our trailer at ETI and beat it back across to Burlington, WA. to get provisions and the items we needed to camp and travel our way back home for a month. Why? Truthfully food, fuel, and RV items are much more expensive in Canada. And if something is defective or un-useful, I can likely exchange it or get a refund anywhere in the US. And the third reason; Because I left my travel companion Mr. Ruger waiting for me back in Washington state.

We were charmed by our brief visit to Victoria. Must also mention the lovely facilities at Bramberton.

That's not stopping me and is one reason I went with a cozy little (fiberglass) Escape. I'm taking Egbert out of storage this week and heading to Fort Casey for several days--don't care about wind or rain, bring it on...

BTW, that's a beautiful trailer, Don & Cheryl!

I'm not Ron, but I lived in Vancouver for 6 years and have been back many times since. Personal favourites: Granville Island, walking the sea wall (walk as far as you like, then take a sea taxi back to where you started), Stanley Park.

A little further afield, you've got Lynn Canyon and Capilano suspension bridges, Cypress Bowl, Grouse Mountain.
