Why I love this city (2/2): Vancouver streets, sea, sunsets, & sand

Hello all. Welcome to Part 2 of my Friday afternoon trek - turning into my Friday evening trek. In Part 2 I start off in Yaletown proper, hop across the Cambie Street Bridge to the new seawall section at the u/c Olympic Village, and then make my way down the seawall along the south shore of False Creek just in time for a sunset at 'Kits' (Kitsilano) Beach.

And for any of you who may have missed it... Part 1:

These buildings u/c will help house the athletes for the 2010 Winter Olympics and thereafter become people's condos

My personal favourites are these new lounge chairs... so comfortable.

Part 2 is everybit as good as part 1. Thanks again for sharing. Have you considered taking some pictures of the other municipalities and suburbs of greater Vancouver?

If so I would love too see them!

I've been to Vancouver and think it's awesome. I absolutely love the glassy architecture and natural beauty. You gotta love those mountains and trees!

Well I am overdue for a Seattle trip. I'm sure I'll make it down there at some point this summer, and I'll be sure to bring a camera.
