For the first part of the day, we were dropped off downtown and given time to walk about two miles back to the bus. Reminiscent of a European town, we wandered Fan Tan Alley (the smallest retail alley around), had lunch at the Seafood Grille (where their cooler was off, the beer was warm, but the food was good) and visited the Royal British Columbia Museum. Unfortunately time did not allow us to spend any time at the museum, but we did take in the IMAX movie about Vikings. The movie put into context some of the information we learned while we were in Denmark, so it was time well-spent.
