Saturday's Adventure: Skytrain, Seabus, & Stanley Park

Posted by on 15 August 2010

Saturday we finally took Fiona on her long-promised Skytrain ride. We each got an all day pass that allowed us to ride the Skytrain, Seabus and city buses in any zones. So we took full advantage of it. After lunch we walked the block to the bus stop and then took the bus to the nearest Skytrain Station. From there we rode the Skytrain all the way to Vancouver.

Fiona didn't want to sit. She loved hanging on to the poles and getting jerked around as we came to a stop and started again. She had a blast! In Vancouver we took the Seabus across to North Vancouver. We walked around the Waterfront Park and then walked across the way to the other side of the Seabus station. There was a very high stair case we climbed which Fiona actually didn't enjoy but she did it. Below there were kids playing in bubbles in water. I mean the children were enclosed in these huge plastic bubbles that were in the water and they had fun playing in them. We shot video and will have to post it later.

We took the Seabus back to Vancouver and then chatted for a bit with a lady that's originally from the UK. She's traveled to Spain and Scotland as well where she has cousins. Then it was to the bus to go to Stanley Park. Where Joel will tell you in another post about our walk and how close we were to the Rose Gardens when we first arrived and how long it took us to actually get there.

At Stanley Park Fiona also saw ducks and raccoons. Then she got to play at the park and make a new friend while Joel and I swung on the swings. We finally took the Skytrain back into New Westminster and ended up walking home, much of it uphill. Joel will also share more of that story.

It was a great adventure day and we all had a lot of fun!

    Fiona was hanging on tight when someone ran a red light in front of the bus. Those electric buses stop now but the people inside don't.

    She bounced off everyone around her, but then, so did everyone else. She never fell down, though.

    By the end of the day she was walking around without hanging on. I made her stop. I tried to explain inertia and all that, but she remained unimpressed. She did hang on, though.
