Vancouver in Early March – Part 22 – Coal Harbour

Coal Harbour is a section of the Burrard Inlet between the downtown Vancouver peninsula and the Brockton Point peninsula of Stanley Park and also the name of the adjacent neighbourhood.

To our regret, we only made it to Coal Harbour once on this trip. It can be a spectacular spot to watch the sunrise or the comings and goings of ships and seaplanes. More than that, it is a good place for people watching. We were here in early afternoon, as we walked toward Stanley Park and our delayed Valentine dinner at the Stanley Park Teahouse Restaurant.

  1. I was gasping in excitement every time we saw a seaplane take off, it’s one of the things I would love to experience in Vancouver; seeing the city and surrounding landscape from an birds eye view. I could even go to the Vancouver Island by seaplane, how amazing would be that! A girl can certainly dream 😉 thanks for sharing and have a good day 😀 Aiva

  2. I watched some sort of show once about the houseboat living in Vancouver and I don’t know if that’s something I would enjoy or not. I love the water but I don’t know if I would be okay with giving up all the greenery and open space to live on the water in a small house that I wouldn’t be able to take out to actually enjoy. Some of them are really quite amazing though!

    1. I think I saw the same show likely on HGTV where rich people had houseboats custom built and then towed to a mooring. Its a lifestyle, I guess. I’m with you. I like my yard. Thanks for reading Angie. Allan
