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:

The Opus Hotel... where we last left off:




























And out of Yaletown proper into greater Yaletown






When you look at this with Google maps/earth it looks like a giant leaf






A large 'green' wall






I double-back a bit here to grab some dinner - at Ebi Ten (fast food Japanese place)


Backside of the Vancouver Public Library




Inside Ebi Ten (sorry, a bit blurry)






Some new podium townhouses














Concession stand/food court at the downtown Costco






Walking up the onramp for the Cambie Street Bridge






Olympic Village in view




On the other side of False Creek


Looking back towards downtown


The new section of the seawall was officially opened a few days ago (though has been at least partially accessible for ~6 months






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






People just seem to love these new swiveling chairs


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


New 'kayak-shaped' bridge








I had fun climbing around these blocks


























Making my way to Kits Beach










A seal in the water


More geese




























And finally at Kits Beach
























And the only (slightly) out of order pic to end things off:

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!
