Music, Lemonade & Japanese Curry
We knew that there were festivities in the city today, so we walked down there, after Curtis had a morning nose bleed and then breakfast!
We got down to Granville Island which had some sort of party happening but it was rather busy and there wasn’t much going on, so we walked to the city instead. There was a giant flag, though!
The first stop was at Starbucks for a coffee and then we walked on to the Vancouver Conference Centre.
We got into the area where some things were happening and looked at the food trucks. There wasn’t much else going on in this area really, other than a couple of music stages and for some reason, the North American Irish Dancing Championships.
We walked out of here and into Canada Place, which had some more activities happening. There was a kids section with a few games and also an Armed Forces section.
We moved on from Canada Place and came across a lemonade stand, so we had to get one! It was just OK.
We walked around some more and then got hungry and fed up of the large crowds, so we walked towards our home and found an Asian supermarket which had a Japanese Curry place inside it!
Curtis got a ‘deluxe curry’ which was chicken katsu, katsu potato & shrimp katsu with rice and curry!
Kim got a chicken katsu curry.
The food was pretty great! We were going to stay in the city for another 6 hours, but we were very tired and there wasn’t much else to do, so we went home.
We sat and watched some TV until 22:20 when the fireworks were due to start and then we went outside to see if we could see them.
Unfortunately, they were just a little too far away, but we did some some fireworks in the end. And we did get a great photo or two of the city!
