This was a special day. As soon as I arrived in Vancouver I started posting pictures on my social media accounts. These were picked up by the Meet in Vancouver convention bureau team. They messaged me as they found out that I was both a runner and a photographer. They delivered two wonderful gifts to my hotel. One was a special pack of natural products for the after run experience. I also received a trip for two with Electric Harbour Tours around the bay.
On the last day I took up the offer of the boat trip. Captain Spencer was my guide and we set off in our boat around the bay. During the trip, we saw the harbour seal who scavenges around the left overs in the harbour. We got close up and personal with the harbour air floatplanes. We also got views of derelict structures with wonderful barnacles growing on them. There was lots of history about the bay and tales about the boats in the marina. Captain Spencer kept me amused with his stories. There were fantastic sea views and amazing skyscrapers to view from the relaxing voyage of the eclectic boat. It was a great finish to the conference.
