10th September 2009: Vancouver

Today we decided to wander round Vancouver in a 'homage to Sarah' checking out all the Vancouver venues she's appeared in over the years, in a small to large appreciation kind of a way ;) I realise this might not be interesting to anyone who's not a huge Sarah fan, but if you are reading this and know me then you kinda have to be! You could skip to tomorrow but I would know you did it! ;p

It was later pointed out to me that it was a shorter walk to my friends house from PNE than walking back to Granville Station to get the train (which we did)! Hey what can you do?!
