The stunning Quaaout Lodge & Talking Rock Golf Course

Our suite with jacuzzi overlooking the lake, complete with a warm and cozy fireplace.  The small and quaint Le7Ke spa is also on property, with sore golfers taking advantage of the specialized massages (treatments can be customized and tailored).

   Crab cakes from Jack Sams (at Quaaout Lodge) , with guacamole and pea shoots

The historic St. Regis hotel; junior queen suite has an art deco feel, complete with steely blue gray leather walls.

 Smoked salmon flatbread pizza at St. Regis Bar and Grill; the beautiful balsamic reduction adds just the right amount of sweet sharpness to this bagel 'n lox inspired pizza.

 Maenam Thai, in Kitsilano.  We tried the aromatic curry of oven roasted maple hill farm chicken.

Lumberjacks balancing on a log, a fantastic performance despite the damp weather at Grouse Mountain.

A wood carved lumberjack along one of the trails at Grouse Mountain (yes that is snow in the foreground).

 A must try: Mountain Nachos, from Chef de Cuisine Carl Wilks and the team at Grouse Mountain.   Later we enjoyed a stellar foraged dessert from Chef Wilks.

 A delicious dessert from the chefs at Manhattan at The Delta Vancouver Suites.


The last of the spot prawns from C restaurant- garlic, citrus and butter, succulent and delicious.


The colourful and interactive amuse at C restaurant.

The beautiful and inviting lobby at The Loden Hotel, where our Aura suite lent stunning views of the Vancouver sky line.  As a bonus, bikes were available for hotel guests to take along the sea wall.

Tableau Bar Bistro, adjacent to The Loden in Coal Harbour.  If you blinked you could swear you were on the streets of Paris.

 Decadent.  Buttery. Savoury.  Umami.  Absolutely standout dish from Tableau and Chef Choquette.  Also wonderful cocktail: a blend of Herredura reposado tequila, thai chili peppers and bitters.  Simply amazing.

 A stunning view from Osoyoos at Watermark Beach Resort.

Another look from Watermark Beach Resort. Our two bedroom suite with views of the lake and vineyards was an amazing way to unwind.


The smell of BBQ, from the Wine bar and patio at the warm Watermark Beach Resort.
