Blue Horizon Hotel on Robson Street
The Marina on False Creek is where our friends moor their boat.
They served us a delicious dinner and we sat looking out facing this beautiful view.
The next morning the weather was cool and breezy, a typical Fall day.
Wind, rain and a wee bit chilly...leaves at our feet.
Perfect weather to visit The Vancouver Art Gallery
Exhibits by the Canadian Group of Seven and Lee Bul were highlights.
I was very impressed by the art installations of Lee Bul.
She worked with mirrors in Via Negativa and the effects were really interesting.
Walking through this mirrored installation I felt dizzy and slightly disoriented...
there were twists and turns before arriving at the lights.
It seemed quite popular with the people who were viewing this exhibit.
I ventured through the maze of mirrors several times!
We stopped for lunch in the cafe before going upstairs to explore more exhibits.
"Between Object and Action:
Transforming Media in the 1960's and 70's."
Kate Craig, Eric Metcalfe, Gathie Falk, Carole Itter and Evelyn Roth.
We shopped a bit along South Granville...I found something on sale at Eileen Fisher!Later we met up at La Quercia for a fabulous meal.
Sunday morning Mr. HB and I went to check out the new Nordstroms and popped into Holt Renfrew before heading to the ferry.
We took our books up to the on board buffet and sat at a window table for the duration of the trip.
A beautiful setting sun
appeared just as we were about to disembark the ferry.
All in all it was a fun weekend and the cats were happy to see us when we got home.
Hope your week is ticking along nicely.
