    Taking our time to leave the hotel, emails was caught up and/or responded, the cooler cleaned of its stank smell, and the truck was reloaded. Finally, Alynn and BS has left the building (not Elvis!). Little errands were run: going to the post office for BS to mail couple of things, purchasing fruits from the city's co-op for Alynn's morning meal... Not far from the international border of USA/Canada, the weather finally brightened to our likings! Coming to the border, witness the beauty of the landscaping and it is not to be surprised if it is completed by the Canadian employers. A monument is erected in the center of a wide, grass-covered median, for you to explore and/or snap photos of.

    Vancouver, British Columbia was our next stop. Stopping at Choice's Market Rice Bakery for BS to pop her nose into, her eyes feasted on the goodies, her taste buds jumped with joy. On the next block is the Choice's Food Market, where we splurged for our next few days worth of meals. Being contented with our purchases, our curiosity got the best of us. Gorilla Food, a very small Deli Take-Out, more like of a stand, was checked upon. the workers there perked up when they learned that I am a former employee of Tree of Life (TOL). To support their business, small meals and snacks were bought. If you're new to raw foods, this is great but if you're a long-time foodies, there is nothing exciting new to try.

    Ever wondered where the California Rolls (sushi) is originated from? Nope, not from California! It was actually created in Vancouver, BC and slightly modified in CA! Because of its high ratings and astounding reviews, it piqued BS's curiosity! Time of luxury was taken to dine at Tojo's and according to BS, it is to LIVE for! Her eyes rolled with delight, her hands caressed the table and her cheeks, her throat made soft moans as her taste buds experienced the flavors.

    Cramming for time, zipping to Truffles Cafe, it was a bit of our disappointment that we didn't make it in time before it closed for the night. Peeking through the windows of the Cafe/food market (which was not much), it appeared that we didn't miss much. Typical dishes and common flavors were displayed on their boards and listening to our hearts, it was a place that can be missed. If you're craving, itching, or arousing for anything organic, this is a great location! There are several organic eateries, markets, stores for such! Quite awe-inspiring! Going down few doors from Truffles Cafe, Organic Cafe was open and wanting to check out their raw (for Alynn) and vegan (for BS) delights. Our taste buds didn't have much of a dance and their goodies is not something we would order again. The cake, Raw Raspberry Apple, was revolting to Alynn yet we both cannot speak for others. Our tastes differ from one another and who knows, you may like it.

    Our bodies calling to snuggle into our bags for the night, we drove northeast-ward looking for a campground. Around midnight, we found a place at the Bridal Veil Camperland, which is located near Hope. A great place for families and children as it have a pool/slide park, playground, activities and trails to trek upon.
