We dished them out to families and tourist groups, and we generally got a positive response. We have come to realize that since in our world it is so unnatural to be nice to someone for no reason (which is what we wish to change if only slightly), there are things we can do to overcome the initial hesitation (or even sometimes opposition) and spawn good conversation, which at the end of the day is our true motive; to get people thinking. So after a day at the Aquarium, and when our packs were a little lighter, we departed Stanley Park and headed for downtown. We walked our way to the Olympic flame where we allowed a fellow tourist to take just an atrociously crooked photo of us and about ¾ of a Olympic monument (oh well).
Business continued as usual as we made our way to the Rogers Arena, Home of the Canucks. Unfortunately, John Legend was playing for a packed house which made our planned forced entry into the Vancouver dressing room more impossible than anticipated, none the less we did get a nice tour of the perimeter and good vibe of down town Vancouver. Beluga’s, dolphins and the sights of Vancouver made for a great day in the city. Then it was time to head back to our good friend Wally Martins place where we could set up lawn chairs and play some cards by the Coleman.
