skateboarder practices before captive audience in cars waiting for ferry
We had originally planned to drive to Vancouver on Sunday, meet our friends at a restaurant, attend the show, stay overnight at their home and return on the following day. That schedule seemed too intense so we added an extra day. We booked a room at the Oceanside Apartment Hotel in the West End of Vancouver - about 1/2 block from Second Beach.

Travelling on the BC Ferries in summer can result in long waits unless you have a reservation so we also reserved car space on the ferry. You have to appear at the terminal between 60 minutes and 30 minutes before your reserved sailing which gives you a little time for people watching or souvenir shopping before the ferry starts loading. While we waited we watched two gymnasts - enroute to a competition? - go through their exercise routines and a skateboarder practice his moves before a captive audience.
