Catching up with Arthur
Yap in Vancouver
Bill Tan was recently in Vancouver and managed to catch up
with Arthur Yap. Together they went on the tourist
trail. Below is a brief account from Bill:
Arthur up on the phone after finding him in the
directory under Arthur H. S. Yap. Otherwise would have
to go through a dozen A. Yaps!
He very kindly came to my hotel in north Vancouver the
next day and we went off first to Grouse Mountain
accessed via a cable car. At the top the mists came in
so took very few shots. A new attraction is the
enclosure of Grizzly Bears which was new to Arthur.
We had a splendid lunch at Horseshoe Bay with the sun
blazing down. Watched the ferries come and go to
Vancouver Island (Nanaimo) and other places. Superb site
(see photograph on the right). Next day walked the Lions
Gate Bridge. A 2km round trip from the N. end."
