Vancouver: The Brocksters
After Mass I went to the Vancouver Art Gallery. Very nice. I really enjoyed the Grand Hotel Exhibit though I didn't see my favorite hotel (The Hôtel de Crillon in Paris) mentioned.
All that was good but the fun didn't really begin until I hit the lobby of the Vancouver Hotel and met some fellow travelers from the Isaac Brock Society (The Vancouver Brocksters). How amazing to finally meet in person some of the people I've had the pleasure to know via social media and the Internet. What a joy and an honor to see them in person. We had lunch at the cafe at the art gallery and there was so much to say and it ended far too soon. Thus far this is the highlight of my North American trip and I thank each and every one of them for the meet up. It was incredible.
And just a suggestion on my part: You folks should keep meeting. I think together you could really rock this part of the world.
Today is my last day here. I'll be heading over to an AA meeting around noon and then I will wander the city until it's time to take the train.
