Oscar and I got the opportunity to visit the new LDS temple in Vancouver.
It's prettier than it looks in pictures, and I really liked the staircases inside.
It's a smaller temple, so they don't have clothing rental. We weren't prepared for that.
I'm glad the British Columbians have a closer temple now. They used to have to go all the way down to Bellevue, WA.
Even though there are 3 temples in Alberta, this is the first in British Columbia.
I did an initiatory session, but Oscar was unable to due to a live session going on, so he took pictures of the grounds.
A lady from Victoria recognized me from church. We'd gone to church in a ward in Victoria on our first Sunday, and she noticed me when she arrived at the temple. She kindly took this picture for us.
Then we were on our way to the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge and enjoyed some beautiful views as we drove through the city on a perfectly clear day.
