Capilano Suspension bridge

CLIFFWALK is the newest attraction at Vancouver’s Capilano Suspension Bridge. Opening in Spring 2011, this heart-stopping cliff-side journey takes guests through rainforest vegetation on a series of unobtrusive cantilevered and suspended walkways jutting out from the granite cliff face above Capilano River to previously unexplored areas of the park. Not for the faint of heart, it is high and narrow and, in some sections, glass (very strong glass) is all that separates guests from the canyon far below. If you are looking for some thrilling Vancouver activities, check out CLIFFWALK at Capilano Suspension Bridge.

Visit Vancouver!

One of my favourite hotels in Quebec has got a new chef. Have a read of this.

Award Winning Cuisine

The Anchorage Restaurant at Ripplecove Inn has again been awarded the prestigious Four Diamond Award in 2011 for chef Rapart's new summer menu. Composed of the finest local ingredients and prepared in a modern French and international style, our new menu earned rave reviews from our guests during its opening evening gala on Friday June 24th. Served in a magnificent Victorian dining room and terrace overlooking the lake, Ripplecove Inn has turned the sophisticated dining experience into much more than just a treat for the taste buds alone.

Well, the rodeo was amazing - I didn't know there was a rodeo on Vancouver Island - I was wrong.
The whole day was such fun and I took hundreds of photos - I thought this was one of the best - let me know what you think.
