Today it’s daddy’s birthday so we went on a big adventure! I’m so tired now because it sure was a lot of walking for my little legs but we had so much fun!
We drove to a secret location for lunch so daddy didn’t know where we were going until we got there! Surprise! It was a a lovely Scandinavian cafe serving Norwegian food which is similar to Danish, so mummy was in heaven 🙂 The staff was so friendly and put a table and chair outside so we could sit and have our lunch there. It was a little busy on the street so I was a little agitated…until mummy got her lunch! She bribed me with a meatball!
After lunch we were supposed to take the bus to Stanley Park but as mummy had run out of bus tickets, we had to find a store to buy some (you can only buy on the bus if you have exact change). So we started walking and walking and walking! Why is it when you need a certain store, it’s no where to be found!? I saw areas of this city that I don’t want to see again. It is too much for a little guy like me 😉 I’m glad I had daddy with us to protect me.
After the walk to downtown mummy and I needed a break so we sent daddy to the store to get bus tickets! Except they were sold out the first 3 places! We finally found some and we could finally get on the bus. We were close by so it was a short journey which was good because I surprisingly didn’t want to rest up. I wanted to explore more! Around the park there’s a sea wall where you can walk, ride your bike and rollerblade. We decided to only walk some of it considering how far we had already walked.
It was cloudy but this city is still so beautiful. I kept checking over the wall in case there were any zombies. It’s important always to be alert to protect your humans. I scared of a lot of zombie geese! They were so scared when I went RaaaRaaaaaaa! Next stop was the totem poles – they can be a little scary at first but they are beautiful work.
We also saw the Nine O’Clock Gun – I’m glad we got there before 9pm because I think it would be a very loud BANG! Back in the day it was fired on Sundays at 6pm to warn the fishermen of the closing of fishing. It was later used as a time signal for the general population and the ships in the port. Today it’s fired every evening at 9pm. I guess it’s good for the people who don’t own a watch.
The last stop was to see the “Girl in a Wetsuit” – it’s a bit like The Little Mermaid in Copenhagen, Denmark except the wetsuit and goggles 🙂 Then it was finally time to head home. I don’t know who was most tired; me or mummy 🙂 But we had a lovely day around Vancouver.
That’s how the doggie biscuit crumbles!
