If you were responding to our note on Vancouver - we were in the city of
Vancouver, not on the island of Vancouver, where Victoria is (confusing
isn't it?). However, they are not far apart. We had perfect clear, sharp
weather, which probably is not the norm. In Vancouver we biked around
Stanley Park and out to Granville Market and the museums, walked all over
downtown, took the ferry and bus to Grouse Mountain (how great to have a
ski area an hour away by public transportation), and then out to Van Duesen
(sp?) Gardens, beautiful even in the winter.
