Vancouver’s version of the Golden Gate Bridge
We leave San Francisco August 13th via train heading North to Vancouver with our bikes in boxes. We love the relaxed and scenic views aboard the Coast Starlight, Amtrak line and the luxurious accommodations too.
Coast Starlight travels from Los Angeles to Seattle, by far the nicest train we have ridden.

Enjoying the complimentary daily wine and cheese tasting in the Parlour car.
We have a brief overnight in Seattle to change trains and shortly arrive in Vancouver to visit our friend Dhiren. He happily shows us the sights of Vancouver, B.C. by foot, car, and bike!

Houseboats in the harbour
Anime Convention attendees elicit smiles by all who pass them. I love walking around the city with cartoon characters.
