Stanley Park Sea Wall

Tuesday was a great day to walk around the sea wall, warm and sunny with a light cooling breeze.

We parked at Third Beach and walked anti-clockwise.

Someone had been creating some 'balancing' stones. Think they may have had a little help but they looked good.

Looking across Lost Lagoon towards the West End

Mum also photographed the colourfully planted roundabout at the entrance to Stanley Park.

Views across Burrard Inlet to Lower Lonsdale in North Vancouver.

While we stopped for lunch we watched a container ship enter Burrard Inlet under the Lionsgate Bridge

A good view of the bridge

Some closer images of the bridge

And from underneath

Finally we passed Siwash Rock before heading back to the carpark.

An enjoyable day topped off by a cheesecake & fresh raspberry icecream (in a chocolate dipped cone of course) from the Marble Slab on Denman Street. Perfect !
