1 or 1/2 Day Excursion

Vancouver is surrounded by a big playground to have fun in. There are two factors that will limit what we can do.

  1. The weather will most likely be rainy and overcast, reducing the opportunities for outdoor fun.
  2. November 11 is a holiday in Canada.

Most people will be leaving the city on Thursday night to go to their recreation property or to visit family. This means traveling using any ferry route will be a challenge.
