Skywatch Friday - Downtown Sky

Hi friends and fellow bloggers,

I hope this weekend find you well and in good spirits. 

I'm joining in with Skywatch Friday today.  The photos I'm sharing were taken downtown earlier this week.

The sky was mostly hazy from wild fires that have been burning all around.  But late in the afternoon the sun broke through.  Enjoy and thank you for stopping by.

High rise on the way to the waterfront.

Promenade around the Pan Pacific Hotel.

Side view of the new Vancouver Trade & Convention Center.

The back view of Christ Church Cathedral with green top of Hotel Vancouver peeping through.

The side of the newish Trade & Convention Center and North Vancouver in background.

Goods stored for shipping. The pile of whitish yellow substance is sulphur.

A small float plane is landing.

The Lions Gate Bridge in background.

The area where trees are jutting out is Stanley Park with North Vancouver in background.


  1. Joyful! It is so nice to see familiar sites like a tourist. Your photos reveal what is true … that Vancouver for the most part is a beautiful thriving city.

  2. I first saw Stanley Park when I was 10 years old. I've never forgotten it. It was an amazing site for a little boy from Saskatchewan.

  3. You certainly live in a beautiful area! I enjoyed these photos so much! I will probably never make it out there to see it for real, so I am glad you shared this with us. I hope you have a blessed and beautiful weekend.

  4. I continue to be amazed at how clean and tidy Vancouver is. I keep hearing marvelous things about it. May you never be threatened by the fires.

  5. What a beautiful Convention Center... and right on the water!

  6. These photos are a lovely collection of many blues. You live in a beautiful place!

  7. I recognise some of those places from when we visited there some years ago.
