A few months ago John and I met up with his family for a long weekend in Vancouver. It was my first time on the east coast of Canada and pretty much fell instantly in love. I just realized that I never even mentioned that trip here. We got in to the city before his family arrived so we had time to kick around Gastown on some recommendations from friends in Toronto who grew up in BC, and from internet friends at Local Wanderer.
These are shots of a couple of my fav spaces: We had coffee Timbertrain our first morning, and then later ended up have a spectacular dinner at L'abbatoir, which had been recommended by practically everyone, but caught a daytime glimpse of that first day.
