From the previous post, the sunset from BC ferry (From Victoria to Vancouver).

Stanley Park — like Central Park of NYC, lots of biking and scenic views of water and trees.

Spent the morning at the park and went to the Lululemon Lab (pictures were prohibited) — got hungry and ate at the nearby Benkei Ramen:

After lunch, we went to Aberdeen Centre in Richmond — an Asian shopping mall with a food court.

Really wanted to try these sushi but was too full…

Next, we drove to Granville Island, which has a ton of shops and food. In Vancouver, you never stop eating.

We came here for one thing: The Lobster Man.

You pick your own oysters, clams, anything you want and they weigh them — at great prices!

From our hotel, we saw the sun set and also to the right (not pictured) was the Richmond Night Market setting up for the next day (for the next post!) — I was pleasantly surprised that it was happening right across from where we were staying.

At night, we went to Ho Yuan Kee for the famous Vancouver crab with sticky rice. To be honest, I’ve had better in NYC. This was a full day of nonstop eating…
