Our first full day in Vancouver started with pleasant sunshine and a light breakfast in the room. We didn't want to waste our time on a such beautiful morning, so we decided to start our new day with a walk in the park. There is a large park in Vancouver, Stanley Park, with extraordinary views. I was terribly eager to see the northern part of Vancouver with a background of snowy mountains. So we started a brisk walk towards the park while the morning light was still great for a perfect picture. But on one of the crossroads at the end of a narrow perpendicular street, I noticed part of the snowy mountains which basically were winking at me behind an old building. My curiosity and impatience to see everything at once caused us to turn into that lane which led
us to Coal Harbour.
How lucky are those Canadians who live in a quiet area like this at the waterfront in tall glass buildings. The design of these blue buildings reminded me of a city from the future. I can only imagine how nice it would be to wake up in a place like this in the spring and to go to the balcony to admire the sun shining off the snow-capped mountains. Or sipping my favorite wine in the cool summer evenings, watching the sunset over the city. I am more than sure that the feeling in one of those moments is equivalent to a feeling like you own the world.
Standing on the waterfront, I couldn't stop looking at this marvelous view which appeared in front of my eyes. And who doesn't love a beautiful yacht or ten?
Honestly, we regretted our decision to have breakfast in the room, otherwise we would have stopped in one of the restaurants located in the harbor for a cup of coffee and some tasty fresh-caught fish. Moreover, the concierge in our hotel highly recommended to have lunch or dinner at Cardero's. A must do for the next time, definitely!
