|Near new farm market. A REAL GEM!|

|Arriving @ Harrison Hot Springs.|
|Families and boaters were enjoying a fine summer day.|
|It was hot but with a nice breeze blowing in from the valley, it was very comfortable.|
|The wave runner rental dock was not busy. There were tourists everywhere but most seemed more interested in hiking, lunching, and sunbathing.|
|We stopped in to the Harrison Hot Springs Resort Hotel. It was a very busy place. The line up at the registration desk was very long. There is a nice coffee joint there but it too was packed so me pressed on with our walk.|

Tourist Loves Vancouver
We recently escaped the merciless Texas heat to tour San Fransisco, Portland, Seattle and Vancouver, all most lovely cities.
We have come to the conclusion that your fair city of Vancouver is hands down the crown jewel of the Northwest.
Vancouver is very modern, clean, trendy, pleasant, and extremely picturesque. What a pleasure it was to tour Stanley Park, the Granville Island market, Gastown and Capilano.
Most of all, we loved sitting on a bench on the bay enjoying the sea planes, the marinas, and the snow topped mountains, in the sunshine no less (something impossible to do in the hot Texas summer sun).
Take it from me, sweltering here in 108 F (42 C) temperatures, you don't know how lucky you are. Love you, Vancouver.
