Papa takes a Winter Olympic pause - from blogging - Vancouver memories

First time I did visit Vancouver BC, was back in 1995.
My daughter, Ingelin and papa, went up north from Portland, Oregon, USA.
We at that time stayed with my Mothers Cousin, Marie (born 1899), and asked her for permission to rent a Car and go up to Vancouver BC, for a 2 two Days trip. We were allowed.
Here is Ingelin. In Portland, OR, back in the mid 1990-ies (repro from a diapositive/slide)
But I think you might like to see some pictures we took back in 2007 - in Vancouver, British Colombia, on the West Coast of Canada.
 Eastern view from Wreck Beach, Just North of the Univeresty (BC)

From False Creek - Downtown side
 
This photo is taken from the Eastern part of False Creek, Vancouver
This the view from Canada Place in Vancouver. In the Hills back here, it's eastbond, the Olympic Ski Competions are now to take place.
 Vancouver is a green city. Here from the path down to Wreck Beach

 Vancouver is also a Blue City. In many ways, very alike Oslo in Norway. Blue and Green City.
 Vancouver is also a City for Sea Food lovers. Like here at Granville Island
 You, know we Norwegians are pretty crazy about Winter Sports.  We are born that way.

Are Papa happy with the performence by his fellow Norwegians so far?

ha-ha, You see papa, here at Wreck Beack in Vancouver. What a dissaster.
 
Our next Event will be the Naming Day for Metin Leander , which will take place on Saturday, February 27. 2010. I'll post as soon as possible. 

Do not forget: Participants of OsloBG will have the chance to meet the Mayor of Oslo.

I got stuck on the good looking seafood and that's about all I could do was stare. Just saying.

Have a terrific day. Big hug to you and Anna. :)

I LOVE Vancouver, Tor, as well as Vancouver Island. Did you know that Astrid's brother lives on Vancouver Island? Yup. So you know it's a very special part of the world, especially now as we are glued to the TV.
