Our time in Vancouver and then Chilliwack last week went by quickly. But I found time, one afternoon, while Ashley had class, to walk along the seawall at Stanley Park, from English Bay to Siwash Rock. I'd hoped to go further, but time was marching on, so I turned back.
The sunny days dissolved into misty grey while we were there. Sea, sky, and shore blended into monochromatic vistas, save for the occasional pop of brilliant leaves.
Tankers at anchor in the harbour await their turn to load or unload. They, too, melted into the landscape.
Birds hung out on the rocks. In the bottom center photo, a cormorant spreads its wings to dry. I learned recently that cormorants have feathers with more "wet-ability" than other seabirds, to enable them to compress their feathers in order to be able to dive deeper for fish. Hence the wide-spread wing stance on the rocks. It would have been a chilly day for air-drying.
