Whytecliff Park animals

We always have a good time at Whytecliff Park – no matter what the weather is like or what animals we see.

Today we were lucky to see the usual seagulls and crows but also bald eagles, harbour seals, sea lions, and harbour porpoise. A really great day which ended with an amazing sunset over Bowen Island.

Seals, sea lions, river otters and porpoises

Once again we had a lovely time at Whytecliff Park where we saw a lot of wildlife:
harbour seals, sea lions, river otters, and harbour porpoises.

Short stop at Whytecliff Park

On our way back driving along the Sea to Sky Highway, we just had to stop at Whytecliff Park to relax a little, maybe see some wildlife and definitely enjoy a gorgeous sunset. And that is all we did!

What an amazing way to end this beautiful day!

2016 Vancouver Tourism Challenge – Day 1

To start this year’s Vancouver Tourism Challenge off, we headed to the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre in Whistler where we learned a lot about both the Squamish and Lil’wat Nations.

After that we went to the West Coast Railway Heritage Park in Squamish, visited the Britannia Mine Museum in Britannia Beach, and went with the Sea to Sky Gondola which was amazing!

Always something to see at Whytecliff Park

We spent some time before and after sunset at Whytecliff Park today where we saw lots of birds, sea lions, and harbour porpoises – and we had a most beautiful sunset, too.

Lunch time with Daisy and Jack

I love spending my lunch time with these two harbour porpoises, and I never get tired watching Jack and Daisy.

Vancouver Aquarium before opening hours

On my little morning stroll through Stanley Park I came along the Vancouver Aquarium where there were no visitors around yet. So I could take a few pictures of the lovely statue Chief of the Undersea World by Bill Reid as well as the poster inviting people to visit the new Discover Rays touch pool exhibit.

Early morning walk in Stanley Park

When there is still so much time before work starts, why not have a nice little stroll along Stanley Park’s seawall?!
That was exactly what I did this morning, and I ended up walking along Lost Lagoon, too, one of my most favourite places in Vancouver.

I very much enjoyed this peaceful morning walk, and I never felt alone; there was always some kind of bird or a squirrel around.
