What’s more distracting on English Bay, the water activity or the sky and mountains overhead? It is one of the questions visitors to Vancouver no doubt ponder when they visit Canada’s beautiful west coast metropolis. Vancouver is home to freighter ships that unload cargo as well as cruise ships that take passengers up to Alaska and down to the Pacific regions of the United States. There are also the Aquabus water taxis that ferry people across False Creek and English Bay, taking them from neighbourhoods like Yaletown to Granville Island and Kitsilano. You can spot one of the Aquabus stops in the photo above. It’s the gazebo-like structure in the foreground.
Even though wintery weather has arrived in Vancouver, a walk along the seawall to take in English Bay, its beaches and the Cascade mountains is a splendid treat no matter what time of year.
