Day 1 of isolation and we played beauty salon. Suddenly I’m happy I didn’t have anywhere I needed to go.
While we were busy trying to not get our clothes wet, other beachgoers weren’t wearing much at all. Thong bikinis were common and I even saw two different women bathing topless. Chris managed to see a total of 4 topless women because he has man-vision and it’s much better at spotting nudity.
If you think this castle looks familiar, you have a good eye. And you probably watch a lot of Disney movies with your kids (I know I do).
The Spanish Alcázar is said to be Walt Disney’s inspiration for…

However, after three times through every store and what felt like an eternity on the playground, I had to poke myself in the eye to remind myself to blink.
We woke up Monday and got our first good look around the city. Vancouver is this bustling metropolis surrounded by placid waters. When I asked Christopher to help me describe Vancouver Harbor he called it “wet,” “boat-filled,” and “blueish.” I’m on my own here, guys.
