We sailed across the strait of Georgia aboard a BC Ferry to spend the weekend with our friends John and Cheryl. Cheryl was celebrating her birthday and the Boat Show was on at BC Place so we decided it was a perfect excuse for a getaway.
Fortunately there were some snippets of sunshine but it really didn't matter all that much as Cheryl and I set out to shop while the fellows perused the boats and all the related marine paraphernalia.
The ferry we were on passed a sister ship in Active Pass.
Here's the first indication that there would be fog...
after we left Active Pass it was as it someone turned the lights out!
Nothing could be seen out the windows until after we docked at the Tsawwassen terminal.
We arrived in downtown Vancouver to glorious sunshine!
The "views" or glimpses of the North shore from the 11th floor of The Blue Horizon Hotel.
Mitsouko's first weekend away from The Humble Bungalow.
The displays for Holt Renfrew...Chinese New Year.
Love those Ferragamo's.
Here's a bright handbag that would perk up a rainy day.
I'd never be able to navigate the streets with these killer heels.
Yes they are gorgeous.
I wore skinny jeans, polka dot socks, my Timberland booties and this French inspired Evan Picone top.
I dug the Georg Jensen pendant out of the recesses of my jewel box
and decided to wear it as it seemed like a simpler accessory than pearls.
I wore my new men's wear scarf and brown Nygaard jacket.
Ralph Lauren gloves came in so handy with the chilly wet fog.
Robson Street is so pretty with all the white lights at night.
The Blue Horizon Hotel has affordable clean corner rooms with balconies and great views.
(If it is not shrouded in fog!)
I've got to close for now and prepare some dinner for Mr. HB and myself.
In case you were curious the cats were glad to see us return,
but fear not, they were well taken care of (spoiled) by our house and cat sitter.
I'll write a follow up post in the next day or two and share some of the shopping and dining highlights.
