We spent our last day in Vancouver wandering around Stanley Park.
It was a gorgeous day, sunny and breezy. The pointy white object behind the cruise ship is Canada Place; this was as close as we got to it. (Can't do everything in one trip.) Located on a peninsula between English Bay and Burrard Inlet, Stanley Park is very scenic. Don't miss the seaplane (they went by quite often, heading out to sea, I never figured out why), the totem posts, the gull with a mouthful of something I couldn't identify. Stanley Park has very clearly marked lanes for walkers, cyclists, and cars, and God help you if you walk into one of the wrong lanes!
It's in Stanley Park, but I was so charmed by the Vancouver Aquarium that I gave it a separate photo gallery. In particular I was charmed by the beluga show, which I walked into - I'd never seen a beluga whale before, I didn't realize they were white! So here's the beluga, isn't he charming? Look at that coy glance.
There are several more photos of him, plus some nice moon jellyfish, and a handsome fish (with anemones) that I can't identify. I also got a couple of shots of Harris hawks. The Aquarium put on a raptor show, the birds flew free around the viewing area. They were going to start with a bald eagle, they did start with a bald eagle, but they untied the jesses and he flew across the viewing area and just kept going. I heard the docent say something about it's going to be one of those days. The Harris hawks behaved much better.
