Summer in the City ...

in the summer, in the city .... remember that song ... i'm humming it now ... This city just shines in the summer ... here's just a few quick pics of the beauty, taken from the a boat ...
an old paddlewheel boat, it is still in use today for harbour tours

ah, the heart of coal harbour, brilliant use of greenspace in the city

There is always a floatplane taking off or landing 

The Vancouver Trade and Convention centre, what a magnificent green roof.

Across Coal Harbour, a view of the local mountains

The City from the north side of the harbour

Of course there are harbour seals sunning themselves ... 
I just love this incredible "pixal" whale!

A bench to rest upon ... after a full day of boating and walking around in the sun, and hey, they match my purse!
Thanks all for stopping by, hope you are all enjoying your summer!
