After our successful stamp collection tour (we now have the minimum 20 stamps we need!) we went to Whytecliff Park to relax a bit there.
We were rewarded with seeing harbour seals, harbour porpoises, amazing clouds, and a nice sunset.
Indeed, whenever we spent some time at this beautiful park in West Vancouver, we are rewarded with so many experiences nature has to offer.
So today we saw a blue heron (no picture of it though), a bald eagle, the usual crows, seagulls, ‘our’ little white-crowned sparrow in addition to harbour seals, sea lions, and so many harbour porpoises which was more than amazing.
A pair of Canada geese swam by with their little goslings – maybe the same two we saw a few days ago, but this time showing off their offspring.
On this overcast day we enjoyed the peace and quiet at Whytecliff Park. We hardly saw any other people there, but as usual there were quite a few animals at the park.
We saw a pair of Canada geese swim by and come back some time later. (We believe it was the same pair.)
We also saw a few harbour seals popping their heads out of the water, often looking at us, too, and, luckily for us, some harbour porpoises also made an appearance.
We had another lovely afternoon and evening at Whytecliff Park where we are always amazed at how much wildlife there is to see – small and large birds from hummingbirds, sparrows, herons to bald eagles, as well as small and larger marine animals from harbour seals, harbour porpoises to sea lions.
The weather looked promising, there was hardly any wind predicted, and we needed a well-deserved break.
So we decided to pay Whytecliff Park yet another visit – and we were so lucky to see four harbour porpoises once again, probably foraging as they were constantly changing directions.
The interesting part was that we saw one harbour porpoise leaping out of the water (again!).
