Oh Canada Part 2  
More road trip pictures, and some Vancouver ones. More to follow once I get them uploaded, which will feature the Chinese garden for all you Highlander fans, and the con photos for the SPN fans. In the meantime, there's one fannish photo in this lot, see if you can spot it! Sorry they're out of order, I got tired of fighting with Scrapbook.



Japanese garden that is part of the university campus in Vancouver




Stanley Park totem poles

The sulfur processing plant. Should look pretty familiar to most of you! :)

The ferry back from Victoria

View from the hotel of Downtown Vancouver

Another view of Vancouver

More Vancouver
Not quite a Caf-Pow!

And yet more Vancouver *g*

Yes this was sad of me, I know, but you have to understand, we don't really have cups like this in the UK...

We saw this tourist trap on the road to Kelowna and just thought it was brilliant in a kitsch, touristy kind of way.

No, I know it's not that one, but we saw it in Kelowna and we thought it was funny.

On the Kettle Valley Steam Railway. It's a section of the old Trans-Canada railroad that was saved and restored by a local historical society.

Now you can ride the section and several times a year they recreate a train robbery that occurred there. Sadly we didn't go on one of those days.

The trestle bridge that marks the end of the journey.

The view from the bridge. It was a long way down.


This guy was great, he came around the carriages playing his banjo and singing. Sadly we didn't get a shot of his face - he looked just like Colonel Sanders!

The lovely conductor on the train. All the staff who ran the train were volunteers, and so passionate about keeping it alive.

My dad would so understand about keeping the train alive. He's a train nut.
