Vancouver, Day 2

The plan today was to go to the Vancouver Aquarium.  This was the only thing on my must-do list for this trip, so I was way excited to go.

After a very good night's sleep, we headed out to the Aquarium and rode the bus to Stanley Park.  The bus was a nice way to see the city a little bit.

Even though I went to this aquarium when i was a kid, I don't remember much about it except for the beluga whales.  We stayed there for about 5 hours to get our money's worth and saw lots of fish, frogs and other marine animals.  They also had some educational shows on how they took care of the animals.  We watched the trainers work with the dolphins, sea otter, seals and beluga whales.
We didn't have any plans for dinner, but on the way back to the hotel, we saw an Asian market that happened to have a hot food bar.  Ah, perfect!  Good food for a cheaper price.  I would have spent more time there, but that would have been dangerous.
After "dinner" and some downtime, we walked to Costco to get some candy that will be given at the convention booth tomorrow.  Julie decided on some individually wrapped Hi-Chews, so the challenge will be not to eat them myself and leave them for the visitors.
