|The day started out with a drive vs. a ride.|
|Trans Canada (No. 1) Highway towards Horseshoe Bay.|
|50 minutes from home, we are approaching Horseshoe Bay - one of BC's major ferries terminals.|
|As we got closer to our destination, we both agreed to drive farther north - up Highway 99 towards Squamish....on the 'Sea to Sky' highway along the BC coast.|
|Part of the new road to Squamish/Whistler that was built for the 2010 Winter Olympics.|
With the slight change of plans, we left the Trans Canada Highway and headed north on Highway 99. This highway hugs the Pacific Coast and is a delight to drive.
|Tug boats at rest in the Squamish Harbour.|
|The world famous 'Shannon Falls'|
|The famous CHIEF, a mountain climber's dream. Jeanette and our son, Deni, have hiked up to the top of this mountain.|
|Read the inscription on the photo below...|
|Jeanette is admiring Shannon Falls.|
|We chose to have lunch here.|
|Seemed like a fitting place.|
|Yes, those are two bottles of beer!....BIG BOTTLES!|
|Stopped here on the way back to Vancouver. This area is most popular with recreational divers.|
|Small ferries dock @ Porteau Cove.|
|Howe Sound....from the side of Highway 99.|

More on our travel to and from Squamish, BC in the coming days.
