Place 72 – Day 94: Vancouver, BC – BC Day Relax

Quaint Coffee Spot

We had another relaxed morning and then got out the house by going for coffee.

We walked past a small house which has been converted to a coffee shop on Saturday so we marked it for our next stop!

We went in and it was beautiful inside, but we decided to sit outside with our drinks as it was in the shade and therefore cool.

Kim got an iced caramel latte and Curtis got a cappucino. They use the 49th parallel coffee, which is the best!

Gym & Swim

We got back from our coffee and Kim wanted to go to the gym, followed by a swim, so that’s what she did. She loved it and even used the sauna briefly!

After Kim was done with swimming, she marinaded the pork we were having for dinner and then we went out for a walk and a drink!

Irish Pub

There is an Irish pub just around the corner from our apartment, so we stopped in there and grabbed a drink whilst sat on the patio in the sun.

Kim got a glass of wine and Curtis got a Guinness, of course.

We left here and went home to have dinner.

Pork Stir Fry & Cleaning

We had Chinese pork stir fry which was terrific! This was exactly what we were looking for for dinner.

We did a bit of cleaning, both vaccuuming & washing and then chilled for the rest of the evening.

Back to work tomorrow, but we’ve had a mostly relaxed weekend with bit of fun yesterday.


This Time Last Year!

Place 72 – Day 58: Vancouver, BC – Brunch & Cheap Guinness

Brunch

We were up at 10:30 and got ready to go out and have some brunch!

We had been recommended a place called Yolks which is a breakfast place and there are only 2in Vancouver. Luckily, one of them is just 10 minutes walk from our home!

We got there and it was very busy, so we put our name down for a table and were told it would be 30 minutes, so we took a walk down the street to find that there are many other places we need to visit in that area.

We finally got the text to say our table was ready, so we went in and took our seats.

Kim got a salted caramel hot chocolate and Curtis got a very delicious coffee.

For brunch, Curtis had an eggs benedict with maple smoked ham, which had some odd sauces but it was incredibly tasty. This also came with lemon & truffle potatoes, which were sublime.

Kim had a croque madam, which was made fancy with poached eggs as well as bechamel sauce and some other interesting ingredients, as well as a side of fruit.

We finished our food and headed back home to get some admin, laundry and cleaning done.

Cheap Guinness

We saw a sign yesterday while on our walk which said that Mahoney’s pub had Guinness on deal, so we went for a walk and then popped in on the way back home!

We eventually got a seat outside and it was hot but with a great view.

We finished our drinks and walked to the shop where we got a few things we needed (and some ketchup as it was on deal!).

Salad, TV & Games

We made a big salad for dinner which we ate whilst we watched some TV.

After dinner, we watched a bit more TV and then played some video games together, which is something we haven’t done for a while!

We did that for a lot of the evening, alternating between that and some Lucifer and then we went to sleep.

Tomorrow is Canada Day so we are off work tomorrow and have a few things we would like to do.
