Long-Weekend in North Vancouver
We just got back from a quick trip over to North Vancouver on the New Years Day long-weekend. The trip proved to very fast on BC Ferries as they were offering extra sailings during various times of the days.
The wet weather experienced while in North Vancouver brought up a number of past memories especially when we were out walking in it. The sky was gloomy plus the rain never seemed to let up and unless you had a hat on it was incredibly wet.
Things that were going on: Lonsdale Avenue between 21st Street and 12th Street had a great selection of small ethnic restaurants especially an incredible amount of Sushi outlets. Businesses along this stretch that were busy included FatBurger, Yaas Bazaar and London Drugs.
A special thank you has to go out to Beans on Lonsdale at 18th and for having a small TV where a person could watch the Canucks win 3 to 1 over the Dallas Stars, have an Americano and dry out.
