Place 70 – Day 17: Victoria, BC – Great Bear Rainforest IMAX

The Morning

We woke with very little sleep, for some reason. Neither of us slept too well, so we slept a bit longer than expected.

We ate cereal for breakfast, had a coffee and orange juice and then got ready for the day.

We chatted with Linda for a bit and then left the house to go to the museum, again.

Great Bear Rainforest IMAX

We booked tickets yesterday at the museum to go back today for an IMAX showing.

The IMAX Screen

The screen itself is the biggest in British Columbia at 6 stories tall!

This IMAX is fully laser, so has much better quality and colour density, as well as high quality crisp surround sound audio and it was also 3D.

The Film

The film itself was around 40 minutes long and was regarding the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia.

The 3D was incredible in this film and it felt like it should have finished much later than it did as it was so good!

The film followed a native man and his son who have been studying the rare ‘spirit bear’ for years.

This showed that bear as well as grizzly bears, brown bears, fish, seals & whales.

There was incredible cinematography and it was also commentated by Ryan Reynolds, which was odd but worked well, with him cracking a few jokes.

Chocolate Shop

We went to a chocolate shop after the IMAX. Kim had seen the shop previously so we went there to get a drink and look at their chocolates.

Kim had a mocha, which are only ever made with melted chocolate and not syrup! It was delicious and worth the extra cost.

Curtis had a cappucino which was also perfect and the first good one he has had since New Zealand.

Hockey Night in Canada

Curtis and Linda watched the Leafs game once we got back.

Whilst this was happening, Kim did some research and booking.

Dinner

We had a delicous whole roast chicken, mashed potatoes, broccoli & stuffing with a delicious gravy.

After dinner, we watched the Vancouver hockey game and Kim did some further research before bed.


This Time Last Year!
