A Room With A View

As promised, I took a few photos while visiting friend's parents who live in one of the tallest buildings in town. The weather was not the greatest, so I couldn't get a good view of the mountains. Maybe next time...

View from the left side of the condo is the ocean and West Vancouver across the water:


View of St. Paul's Hospital, probably the busiest in town:


Looking down on to the Burrard & Nelson corner at the old BC Hydro building:


Looking straight ahead at the tallest building in Vancouver, the Shangri-La hotel, and the North shore mountains as well as North Vancouver:


More to the right, a view of the Vancouver Hotel (green colour roof) and real green roofs on top of the Law Courts (just below the watermark):


One of these days I will be able to take some nice photos of the mountains, I promise.

Hope everyone has a good rest of the week!

  6. Wow it's so modern and built up, it looks like Hong Kong to me!
    So different from what I would have expected.

  9. T., it's time for a visit. It's less crowded or polluted than Hong Kong. You would love it.
