11th September 2009: Vancouver

Well since Jo was trying to recover a bit from yesterday's overwalking (aye, aye, moan, moan ... ;) we had a more leisurely day today around New Westminster. Think she was just scared of doing herself a mischief and be sore tomorrow for the big day! First up for photos was the skytrain bridge that Jo took us on by mistake a couple of visits ago. Was really scary cause it has no sides!! Then we got lunch (yes lunch!) and headed up to Queen Elizabeth Park. In classic “FFS” stylee we found a quiet bench and settled down to eat only for a load of children to suddenly appear and start running round the park ... round and round and round the park! Suffice to say the food was eaten as quickly as possible!
