The Snowbirds have landed!

12 Oct

We have now arrived in West Vancouver and have had two glorious Autumn days to get aclimatised to our new time zone. Our flights went well with only a 15 min delay out of Heathrow. We arrived at the appartment at around 9:30 at night after taking an unscheduled detour through Stanley Park, the bonus was we saw two families of Racoon, however our beds would have been far more welcome!
The appartment is realy nice and we have fantastic views out over the bay. We took a trip up Cyprus mountain yesterday as it was so clear to see the view accross to Washington State. Today we have been down to Abbotsford and taken a first look at RV’s then wandered around the Mount Leman area for a while, had a picnic and a strole in the Autumn sunshine and back for tea. We are having problems with the wireless network and our very friendly landlord is doing his best to fix it but until we can get our own computer going there will be no pictures or web cam so we will try to get sorted very soon.
