Believe it our not, we enjoy the outdoors. I mean, most of the shopping malls in SoCal are outdoors, so naturally we would find a liking to Mother Nature as well. We took full advantage when we escaped to Vancouver for the 4th of July weekend. And where would you go to be outdoors and act like the biggest child in the coolest treehouse ever? The Capilano Suspension Bridge, of course!
Apparently the bridge is much safer now that it was before. What was it before? A tightrope? Well whatever it was, this bridge can definitely withstand a lot of weight. Two 747 boeing planes to be exact (only fact I remember from reading the signs).
Our outdoor adventures continued when we visited English Bay to catch the sunset at 10 O’CLOCK! With that much daylight, think about all that extra playtime one could have had while growing up! Talk about awesome summers.
The Inukshuk is an Innuit symbol believed to be used as a navigation marker or indication that someone has been here. Vancouver uses this as a symbol of friendship and welcoming the world. Oh those Canadians, they are such friendly folk!

When I first visited Vancouver, I thought to myself, what a great place to live! There is something for everyone here. Food, urban living, nature, mountains, water everywhere I turn. No seriously, I felt like I was constantly crossing a body of water, river, or bridge…am I on an island?? I got the tip from my Canadian friend to visit the Capilano Suspension Bridge. Be forewarned, it is not for the faint of heart. A walk across this swaying bridge can make you weak in the knees, especially if you are peering over the edge at the riverbed 230 feet below. A little bit pricey to enter ($28.95 if you are a student, yes still rocking the student ID), but you can easily spend a solid afternoon here. Added bonus, all the walking and treetop exploring worked up an appetite and boy, did we eat on this trip. Stay tuned for our next post featuring Vancouver eats!
