The beach was still rather deserted when we got there...but soon the crowds began to arrive.
It was a beautiful evening...and we had a great time watching the sun go down...and watching the people!
At ten o'clock the sky above Vancouver came alive! China put on a fantastic display...I can't even imagine that the Grand Finale on Saturday night can top what we saw. (British Columbia is having it's 150th Birthday Celebration this weekend...and Saturday's fireworks are part of the party.)
We spent the night at an RV Park in West Vancouver. In the morning...under rather grey and drizzly skies...
...we took the seabus across the harbour into the downtown area.
If you ever visit Vancouver while on a cruise, this is exactly where you would dock. The building that resembles the sails of a ship is Canada Place...and was a trademark of Expo '86. It also houses the World Trade Centre offices.
Once we disembarked from the seabus, we entered the city through this magnificent old building, which was once the Canadian Pacific Railway Station in Vancouver.We strolled about the port of Vancouver for a bit, where there is much construction happening at the moment...
...and passed by a group of workers who were taking a break.
