Another visit to the Vancouver Aquarium

With the gloomy sky above us, we decided to head to the Vancouver Aquarium and say hello to the animals there and make the most of this day. When we parked our car nearby, we saw several Canada geese at the top of a large tree stump looking around. That was quite a sight!

Once inside the Aquarium, Jack swam by to say hello, Aurora and Qila enjoyed themselves – and Elfin was taking a nap. That was so cute!

Each visit is enjoyable – and we will definitely be back soon!

Vancouver Aquarium and Stanley Park

We met Leanne and Susannah at the Vancouver Aquarium to spend some time there – and we mostly stayed inside as it was raining.

At least one of the sea anemones looked like the sun, didn’t it? And we visited all the other animals as well, among them Aurora, Qila and the seals.

Despite the rain, Marcus and I had a short walk through Stanley Park and went to the seafront to have a look at Coal Harbour.

Vancouver Aquarium, Lost Lagoon and sunset in Burnaby

What a day! We had an amazing morning at the Vancouver Aquarium where we had a look at all the animals living there. There was feeding time for the harbour porpoises Jack and Daisy, the belugas Aurora and Qila were happily swimming, the Pacific white-sided dolphins Helen and Hana were playing, the penguins were enjoying themselves, and so did the sea otters Elfin and Tanu, and Schoona was swimming gracefully. And then there were so many others to be watched, like colourful butterflies and those funny garden eels. We never tire of visiting the animals and could spend hours there! Well, we usually do…

After that we went through Stanley Park where we saw a squirrel eating and Canada geese marching along and finally came to the Lost Lagoon where we spent a lovely afternoon. This is one of our most favourite places in Vancouver – and a special one for us, too. It is always totally relaxing to sit on one of the benches and to watch the wildlife there. We usually spot ducks, Canada geese, swans, blue herons, squirrels, raccoons, seagulls, turtles, fish and various birds. And I always take pictures – I must have a hundred if not even a thousand of that location.

By the way, Have you spotted the blue heron in one of the pictures here?

Back home with a nice cuppa in hand we had the most amazing sunset ever – just have a look at the pictures!
