Yesterday we took a boat cruise up to Indian Arm from Vancouver on a three decker ship/cruise line. Indian Arm is part of the Burrard Inlet that stretches up past Port Moody. It reminds me a lot of Kootenay Lake, which I'm sure my sisters will attest to when they see these pictures. We had forgotten to bring the camera, so I took these pictures with my cell phone, and I am surprised at how good they look.
Here is one of many waterfalls we saw. The captain of the boat was able to nose right up to this waterfall, but my picture of that didn't save.
This is the oh-so-recognizable skyine of Vancouver as we were leaving the harbour. Some of you may have been to the Harbour Towers restaurant shown in the photo. It is the circular rooftop restaurant shown in the middle of the photo. It rotates 360 degrees for a full panoramic view of the city. The next time my sister comes to visit, I think I will take her up in the glass elevators for a nice dizzying lunch at the top of the city!
This is a view of well-known Stanley Park.
Here is one of the old powerhouses that used to supply power to the area we visited.
It was a wonderful little excursion to go on, and a nice thing to do on a Sunday after Mass.
