We began with brunch at Fraiche high on the hill in West Vancouver. This is a very fine restaurant where my son just happens to cook. Here's a view from the dining room. It overlooks the city of Vancouver, Stanley Park, Lions Gate Bridge and Burrard Inlet. Sorry about the hazy photo quality.

Tomorrow, we set off on our own quest: a road trip to spend a week in the Okanagan. I'm not sure of the internet connections so posting may be sporadic to non-existent. See everyone when I get back.
