Spring Break Adventures 2012, Day 2: North Vancouver

For our second day of Spring Break adventures, we decided to take the SeaBus to North Vancouver.

Approaching North Vancouver by SeaBus

Since it was already lunchtime when we arrived, we took a bus from the North Vancouver SeaBus terminal up Lonsdale Avenue to local legendary restaurant White Spot for some Pirate Pak meals for the kids (served in a paper pirate ship, with bonus gold-wrapped chocolate coin).

After lunch we strolled down Lonsdale Avenue looking at the many interesting shops and restaurants on our way to the attractively-designed St. Andrews Park at the corner of East 11th Street and St. Georges Avenue.

When the kids had had their fill of climbing, swinging, and playing with trucks and wagons that had been left behind in the park, we continued down the hill via Victoria Park to Big Pete’s Collectibles at 149 Lonsdale Avenue to check out the comics and toys.

After scoring some Mario Kart toys at Big Pete’s, we finished up our North Vancouver excursion with a stroll through Lonsdale Quay Market on our way back to the SeaBus station.

    I thought this day sounded awesome by the time you got to pirate themed lunch, but it just got better and better! I’m impressed.

    Also, I want a pirated themed lunch now.


    • Pirate themed anything is pretty cool, eh? It was a great day! My favourite, I think, so far of the three adventures we’ve had. It was a little bittersweet to revisit the neighbourhoods we haven’t been in since Mum/Grandma died 9 months ago, but it was good. We had a lot of fun, and we did some remembering as well.
