A recap of today! We walked to the Lonsdale Quay to take the seabus into Vancouver so we could venture to Nelson the Seagull cafe in Gastown. It was a cute cafe with ceramic tile floors, high ceilings, big tables, old school chairs, and GREAT coffee! Plus the logo is a seagull…so how much better can it get?! I got an iced latte and Nathan got a normal hot latte. The entire time we were thinking how awesome of a spot this would be to drink coffee and study.
After we left Nelson the Seagull, we walked to The Birds and the Beets to get some lunch. Lunch included a chicken pita full of hummus, tzatziki, spinach, red peppers, pickled onions, and lots of chicken! Nathan had a miso barley bowl which had a bunch of barley, a poached egg, pickles, pickled cabbage, and squash – also very tasty. This cafe had sparkling water on tap over top of a planter so the plants could be watered if any extra watered spilled – smart! The interior of the cafe was lovely. It had exposed brick walls, exposed cement walls, A LOT of plants, and a really neat light fixture (I added a photo below!).
The rest of the day was spent walking around – we went all the way from Chinatown to Stanley Park – we covered a lot of ground in an afternoon! On our way we took many film photos to document it and to try new techniques we learned on YouTube. The walk included a stop at Lucky’s Doughnuts and Parallel 49 Coffee – we picked up a sprinkle doughnut and an earl grey flavoured one.
It was a great day to wander around Vancouver and try out new photography techniques…we will share those photos once they get developed!!
