On Friday we woke up very early and left the house by 6.30am to head into the train station in central Seattle.  We said our goodbyes to Joel, Loralei and the twins, and went to get our seats assigned.  4 and a half hours later, we were in Vancouver, and looking for a taxi to our hotel for the week – the Howard Johnson, at Granville and Davie. We settled in and got the wifi going, and then went for a little bit of a walk (about a block) to find out where we could get some very late lunch, landing with extreme success on a sports bar. Sadly, it’s a Liverpool supporting sports bar, but they assured us Man Utd fans would be ok anyway.  We had our late lunch and then wandered back to the hotel (all of half a block) and crashed out for the rest of the day.
