My office is in Victoria, but trips to Vancouver are a regular part of my work. We tend to go by floatplane, and I took some pictures on my second trip, last week on May 3. It was late in the day and there were dried droplets on the windows so pics from the plane weren’t great. This is the plane I took on my last trip to Vancouver:
Both of my flights have been with West Coast Air, in DeHavilland Twin Otters. I get on the plane from a dock in the Inner Harbour and we taxi out into the open water. I took a shot of the Johnson street bridge out the window. This is not a great shot, but how many times do you see this? We bobbed a little in the wake of that barge:
I took some shots of Stanley Park and the Vancouver skyline, but the spatter and the sun defeated my efforts.
I took a picture of the Vancouver Court House from the southwest corner on Hornby the next day:
At the end of the day, it’s down to the Vancouver Harbour a little west of Canada Place. If I am early, I just have to sit there and watch the planes fly off over Stanley Park:
Sometimes there is nothing to do except look at the harbour, and the far shore of Burrard Inlet:
On my return, I saw a cruise ship and something military in the harbour at Ogden Point in Victoria:
