Some Vancouver Pictures

I thought I would share some of the photos of Vancouver I have taken over the past couple of years. Vancouver, like all major cities, has places of great beauty. I prefer the natural beauty of British Columbia; but, will publish some pictures of the man-made beauty we all get to share as well.

This shot is taken from the north end of the University of British Columbia campus overlooking a small inlet of the Pacific Ocean. In the background is North Vancouver and the mountains. Exquisite!!

Some of the construction happening in downtown Vancouver. The Fraser River is one of the busiest waterways in the world. You can see some of the cargo ships in the background and more of our majestic mountains.

The ocean makes a small harbour in the middle of downtown Vancouver. It is an oasis of calm and serenity in the chaos of city life. The buildings and mountains act as a stunning backdrop to a much-loved green space.

Same harbour - different view.

I will be diving into my topic of the (mis)use of water in a couple of hours. I just need a couple more good cries and I shall be close to normal. In the meantime, enjoy the photos.

I'm proud of you for pulling out things that you love and enjoy, like the gorgeous Vancouver photos and for being in community during the loss of the kittens. Thanks for making their end happy and full. Big hugs to you and all the rescuers!
