Vancouver: Farewell to Summer

Hi all, I took some pics around downtown Vancouver a couple weeks ago (Sat. Sept 26) and felt like I may as well post them here rather than have them continue to sit on my computer where no one will ever see them.

Great photos man! I had no idea how Vancouver looked like, but from what I saw in these pictures I like it. It's a bit different than I expected it to be though (not in a bad way)

LOL at the protest.

Nice weather in Vancouver, I heard sunny days aren't that usual in the Northwestern Pacific coast.

Nice Vancouver thread, great pics.

^Yes, we definitely have that reputation. The summer is actually quite dry and clear in the Pacific Northwest - drought conditions in fact. Grass turns brown, there are water restrictions, forest fire hazards, etc. The "winter" (Nov-Jan) is our cloudy and rainy season. Precipitation in November (our rainiest month) is over 460% greater than that of our least rainy month (August).

Thanks for all the comments everybody!
