Two Travelin' (Flat) Terriers - Part 2

The first part of this episode of Two Travelin' (Flat) Terriers is brought to you by me, none other than the internationally renowned H.C. Bird, Jake and Just Harry's heron-cam. It seems that, after their journey across the continent and their multiple trips up and down 30 floors of their hotel for you know what, Flat Jake and Flat Just Harry were too tired to go trippin' around the city.
Just as well because, while I flew over to give directions, the humans walked and walked and walked. They were intrigued by the many beautiful skyscrapers -- and their reflections of other skyscrapers -- that give Downtown Vancouver its distinctive look.


They walked down to Canada Place, home of one of the most striking cruise terminals in the world. This is the view of the other side of the Burrad Inlet, where the ships cruise out to sea.Two ships were in Port. One was being refurbished for the start of the Alaska cruise season; the other was getting ready to sail in the afternoon. We watched the ship being provisioned: pallets of food and beverages and all kinds of other supplies were being loaded.These are the sails thay give the cruise terminal its special identity.From Canada Place, they walked to Gastown, but that story will be for the next episode. Rather, Flat Jake and Flat Just Harry insisted that we show you a few teasers from the next day's adventures, when they got to go along. So they are taking over the rest of this episode while I go snag some of the yummy Dungeness crabs that are found in this part of the world...
________________________________________________________________
We saw this lonesome lady sitting on a bench near Stanley Park.So we sat down next to her to cheer her up a bit. Somebody had already left a flower in her hand. And then, as we entered Stanley Park, GUESS WHO WE SAW!!!!! Mom shouted WIRE FOX TERRIER!!! And his human, taken aback at first, brought him over to meet us. His name: Chris, aka Christopher Robin. We told him about all our wirey pals...He didn't say very much -- but his owner and our humans chatted for quite some time - comparing notes and stories and agreeing that we're kind of a fun breed! (We knew that.) As we said this is just a teaser. More about what we did in Stanley Park later.
And just so you know we haven't been starving on our trip, here are a few more teasers:

We went to Chinatown and saw all kinds of interesting foodables in the markets.

And we had delicious tea and noodles with green onions, ginger, and shredded pork in a small restaurant...
Much later, we got to meet Jason, the charming bartender in the hotel bar...

And shared onion soup, a crab cake, and an indeterminate number of martinis with the humans...
Woof!!!

Tomorrow Dogdad has to get serious and attend the conference that brought us here; but we'll go back and show you more of what we've discovered in this delightful city!!!

Flat Jake and Flat Just Harry and our pal, H.C. Bird

My goodness sakes, you two are sure seeing a lot of sights and you aren't even getting your paws dirty. Tell your dadda to get back to business - after all, you need him to bring home the kibble!

The sail things are beautiful. What a lovely city. How fortunate that your humans ran into a little WFT so that they could get a doggie fix.

Slobbers,

Guys, you are looking mighty fine and handsome, we think Vancouver agrees with you. Aren't our peeps silly when they spot another wire? Muzzer has been know to pull the car over and go running off down the street to meet one...When she has ME at home. It is particularly bad when they are wireless, or dealing only with our flat selves...something about the feel of the fur under their fingers I guess.

We are sorry your dad will have to attend a meeting or two, but hope your mom will soldier on, providing us with further adventures.

What fantastic pics - we have never seen building so high!
We have never even seen a ship although our humans said they went a cruise once and you needed all those pallets of food!
They reckoned there was enough to feed a whole country!
That sculpture lady was lovely - how kind for someone to give her flowers.
Wonderful adventure.
love

Mumsie's having a massive giggle attack...she's just thinking what Bruvver would have said if this had happened to her and she had our flat selves with her...he would have taken off running!! Sigh...the youth today...no imagination...

We've seen many pix of Vancouver, specially durin' the Olympics, but we never noticed how totally cool those reflections are in the other buildings...and how amazing your pix were!!

Oh, we can't wait to read part 3!!

Buckets of love,
