Canada Place, Vancouver Lookout, Stanley Park

Together with our boys we visited Canada Place to experience FlyOver Canada – and what an experience it was! FlyOver China was pretty amazing, but FlyOver Canada was breathtakingly beautiful. The flying part definitely felt real.

From there we went to the Vancouver Lookout to have an amazing view of Greater Vancouver.

After that we strolled along Vancouver’s waterfront until we came to Stanley Park where we saw a blue heron wading in the water, and later a squirrel nibbling on something to eat.

We were quite hungry, too, although we had a nice snack and a cool drink in between, so we made our way home to get something delicious for dinner.

It’s the Vancouver Aquarium again

Once again we took the SkyTrain to go to Burrard Station where a sea of cherry blossoms awaited us. From there we walked through Vancouver a bit and finally made it to Stanley Park’s seafront from where we had a great view of Coal Harbour, and later we even had a clear view of Canada Place’s sails and the Vancouver Convention Centre on whose ‘living roof’ native plants grow and bees have found a home. As a special bonus, we saw a blue heron nearby looking for food.

Inside the Aquarium we finally could get a glimpse at the new sea otter girl Katmai who was together with Tanu. Of course, we had to go down to say hi to both harbour porpoises Jack and Daisy – and after some waiting Jack came to the glass panel and played peek-a-boo with me. That was so cute! Then we continued to have a look at all the other animals indoors and outdoors, including the tasselled wobbegong.

After having spent some time at the Aquarium we headed back to Burrard SkyTrain Station via Devonian Harbour Park, Cardero Park and Harbour Green Park along the waterfront. At one point there was this interesting house, and from another point we could see the Harbour Centre with its Lookout Tower.

All in all, we had a most beautiful day together with our boys and will definitely be back soon.
