Some pics from my trip to Vancouver. What an amazing and beautiful city!
Downtown Van from the South side, in a section of town called Fairview:
Bald eagle nest! Thing was huge!!
And the eagle - wish the picture was clearer:
Taken from Stanley park looking towards the North of the city. It was my sister's birthday and we took a limo ride through the city + Stanley Park:
We went ziplining at Whistler/Blackcomb in the coastal temperate rainforest! It was AWESOME. We got to see the Olympic luge track on our way up the mountain, and the infamous corner of the track where the luger died. I will have actual ziplining pics soon. This was in Whistler village after we were done:
Scenery on the way back to Van from Whistler. What a gorgeous drive!
Tantalus Lookout. Kinda messed up the stitch, but oh well:
More downtown. My sis and her bf and my bf are on the right there, heh:
The other side of downtown from inside Stanley Park:
These lumps in the water are a seal feeding her pup, and a heron:
Totems in Stanley Park:
We went on a 2 hour bike ride downtown, through Stanley Park, and all along the sea wall - it was amazing!! Now I know why people move from Ontario and never come back. Also, there are TONS of Aussies and NZ peeps living and working in Van, especially in the hospitality/tourism industry. Most of the people working in Whistler Village had an Aussie or NZ accent. Heh.
Sorry the pictures aren't better, all I had was my phone camera. :/
