Vancouver, B.C.

We took a quick trip to Vancouver to see friends coming off an Alaska cruise.  We dodged the rain and enjoyed the sights.

We visited the Museum of Anthropology on the campus of the University of British Columbia.  The Museum building was designed to reflect the houses built by the native people of British Columbia.  There are reconstructed houses on the grounds.  If you go, take a tour given by a docent.  Our guide was excellent.

We drove up the Capilano River to the Salmon Hatchery.  Of course this is the wrong season for seeing the fish but it’s quite pretty.

This must have been a massive tree.  A new tree has grown out of it along with a few smaller sprouts.

We drove up Hwy 1 to just above Horseshoe Bay.

Heading back to the city we finished up at the Dundarave Pier.  There’s a beach park and a nice restaurant there.  The globe in this fountain rolls around as it balances on the flow of water – very cool.
