Having family close by makes everything better. During my sister's visit to Vancouver we had such an amazing time! We played tourist in the city, and squeezed in so much to six days.
We took a day trip to Bowen Island, such a beautiful place. We went on a little hike and found a wonderful view, had lunch by the water, and walked around a little bit. By chance, we missed the earlier ferry both heading to and coming back from the island. Aside from bad timing of the ferry, and a bit of unexpected chilly weather, I think the next time I visit Bowen will be to try some outdoor activities, kayaking and camping perhaps?
