We had a great time at the Vancouver Aquarium

During our visit at the Vancouver Aquarium we saw lots and lots of animals, among them turtles, piranhas, frogs, axolotls, sloths, butterflies – and of course, the harbour porpoises.

We definitely had a fantastic time – and will be back soon, probably very soon…

So much to see at the Vancouver Aquarium

Today was the first time for our boys to see the expansion of the Vancouver Aquarium, and we had so much fun exploring all the new and already well-known areas.

Among others, we went to the Amazon where we saw a two-toed sloth (quite up close), the two hyacinth macaws, and some scarlet ibises. We also visited the Frogs Forever? gallery and spotted all three axolotls.

And of course, we spent some time with the harbour porpoises Jack and Daisy before heading home where our boys had a great time swimming in the pool.

What a fantastic day!

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!
