Stanley Park and Gastown!

On Sunday, we decided to rent bikes and drive around the perimeter of Stanley Park. . .  really fun and really beautiful!

We kept saying the whole time. . . can you imagine if you lived in this city and could get up and run HERE???  I would run every day!!!  (Okay, it’s a nice thought, but not bloodly likely. . . but still wouldn’t you be inspired to run here?). . .

Three girls on their cruisers. . . :)
