~It all began with a rooftop shoot at my colleague’s condo from the 42nd story is where I saw my first stunning sight of the tall structures lit up, Canada Place exhibiting a beautiful light to the waterfront while the clear skies toped this sight.  Vancouver’s cityscape is prominent from the top of these buildings or from ground level to the view from across North Vancouver Island.

Sea to Sky Gondola

~Up, coffee in hand and were organized to seize the moment at the Squamish Sea to Sky gondola; driving there contains many magnificent landscapes for your enjoyment.  We’re heading up as you got midway to the top of the scenic stop, the sights progressed to some more amazing discoveries. Crossing over to the rope bridge, the landscape changed and turn out to be an invitation to explore more, even more than what we had intentionally set for ourselves.  Investigating the paths to many lookout points was a great way to see all bend of nature Squamish region presented.

Sewells Marina boat tour

~Positioned 25 minutes from Centertown Vancouver, it remained such a fun day as we searched for whales with no break, we did appreciate many breeds of birds and seals of diverse colours throughout Horseshoe Bay.  The guide offered us adequate time to capture special moments all the way and back for this family-oriented interest; I appreciated each minute of this day.

Stanley Park

Have you been to Stanley Park?

~Only half a day left, I try the horse-drawn carriage tour instead of heading out for a stroll along the seawall by myself. As it proved to be a great suggestion, the attendant was bursting with historical familiarity regarding all of the occurrences past present and future.  A great way to spend my pre-lunchtime minus soar feet.
