Vacation, part 3: Vancouver, BC

(See July 21 and 27 for parts 1 and 2)

"I wonder where we can find some good Chinese food?" We had breakfast mid-morning and now for a mid-afternoon lunch. Who better to know than the lady at the desk at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen's garden? One of her recommendations was the Jade Dynasty... turn right on Pender street and just 2 short blocks on the left side of the street.

One of our favorite dishes is chicken with Szechuan green beans, spicy, dry, and fresh, crisp and crunchy green beans... hard to beat in my mind. Two other dishes were ordered, one with seafood and the other pork, and there was no disappointment around that table. We laughed at one another as the highly steeped plates of food were served and realized the few remaining stragglers in the restaurant were also smiling. One of the last families to leave, stopped by to say it would make for a nice dinner. We agreed.

Doggy bags in hand, we returned for a relaxing evening, a glass of wine and the anticipation of the next day's adventure as we enjoyed the city views from our window.

Part four is coming up.
