A sunny day in Vancouver

Yesterday I spent a day sightseeing in Vancouver.

Apart from driving through the edges of town a few times I had never been to this city before so this was very much a first-time visit.

After boarding the morning ferry from Nanaimo I took some shots of the Pacific Biological Station as I sailed past. Say hello to Marije, who works there:

The next shot is from a little further out to sea:

When I arrived in Vancouver I met up with my friend Jeannine from Newfoundland, who is in town for the week, and we decided to go see some sights together.

First up was a walk in Stanley Park, a large green space right next to the city, it offers many walking opportunities and great views all around.

There were beaches too:

After seeing the park we took the bus into town and walked around for a while:

At Canada Place, I saw otters, seals, and a familiar cruise ship:

At the end of the day I was pretty much exhausted, so we said our goodbyes and I took the bus back to the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal.

As I sailed away from the mainland I took some parting pictures in the warm glow of the evening sun:

  1. All very gorgeous photos and lots of sunshine, too. Glad you’re able to get out and sightsee and to visit with an old friend. Bess

    1. Thanks Karen, I remember your photos from Capilano and I have put it on my to-do list. Now that I know how to get around it’s just a matter of time before you see some Capilano cliff walk pictures here 🙂

      Loved your latest Father Troy’s Trail pictures by the way!
