After breakfast, we packed a picnic lunch and drove into Vancouver to go to my beloved Stanley Park. The tide was out today, so we were able to take the steep steps down the side of the seawall and wander the beach. One thing we all love to do is beachcomb. I think we'd be happy doing that on any given day, more than anything else in the world.
Here's a section of the seawall where we were walking. When the tide's out, the entire thing is totally encrusted with mussels and seaweed. It's really quite something to look as far down as you can see and millions of mussels are clinging to the wall.
Carver and I always take our cameras and poke around seeing what's worth shooting. It's something we enjoy doing together and Mother Nature never disappoints us.
The scuba diver, as I've mentioned in post about Stanley Park before. Today the rock is sitting right out of the water. You can see by the tide marks how high the water usually is.
Downtown Vancouver. The sails in the background is the convention center. We get lots of cruise ships docking in the inner harbour. There's a seaplane dead centre getting ready for take off.
We stopped and had our picnic lunch at the Totem Poles. These are new totem sections that have recently been added. There are much bigger totems in the center of this area that have been there for years. I really like the colours and the moon faces.
Another new totem section. I think these new pieces are so beautiful. The totem area is where most of the tour busses pull in for photo ops for the tourists. You can just stand in this area of the park and quite literally watch the world go by.
