From there we wound our way up the hill to the University of British Columbia (my alma mater) and passed the famous Nitobe Gardens (below), Totem Park (where I lived in residence for four years), Thunderbird Stadium, and odds and sods of research buildings. We drove along Marine Drive to the great lookout point where you can look across the water at Vancouver Island.
We stopped for a bite of lunch before heading over the Burrard Street Bridge to wind our way through the downtown area to get to Stanley Park. We took the park drive past Prospect Point where you can see the totem poles.........
We passed Lumberman's Arch,
where we had a fine view of the Lion's Gate Bridge that would take us over to West Vancouver and its beautiful beaches.
