Friday 1st July - almost on holiday...

Up very, very early to get our cab out to Denver airport!  Arrived, checked in, through security all very smoothly, then for the delay.  Our flight was delayed 2 and ½ hours and we couldn’t make our connection at Seattle.  I spent the time working, answering emails, and blogging.  Eventually, we flew up to Seattle.  Smooth flight.  We landed to find we had been put on an Alaskan air flight, arriving into Vancouver by 5pm.  Despite checking that our bags would come with us, they didn’t make it.  Would you believe we experienced that feeling again, as the empty baggage carousel showed our fate. 

Francoise was amazing, at the baggage counter and yet again, we completed all the missing baggage paperwork.  AGH…… In a cab and off to our hotel in time to meet out dear friends Irene and Jim who we haven’t seen since Italy 2013.  WOW what a reunion, and what a party to welcome us to Vancouver on Canada Day.  We watched the parade for a time, then had a delicious dinner before going to Canada Place for a stunning firework display.  100,000 people out partying and celebrating!  WOW.

Back to our Hotel, Blue Horizon to be reunited with our bags which were located in Seattle at 11.56pm.

Today’s highlight, definitely reconnecting with Irene and Jim.
