I was going to walk to Gastown and take some photos there but I didn't make it. While strolling down Powell Street I caught a glimspe of a building on the next street - Railway Street.
This is one of a set. Very majestic looking I thought. The Port of Shanghai is a deep sea and river port. Since 2005, it has been the world's busiest port by cargo tonnage.
Port Metro Vancouver, as it is now known, is the largest port in Canada, in the Pacific Northwest and on the West Coast of North America according by metric tons of total cargo.
I didn't go right into Crab Park, rather just took a few photos from the bypass.
Crab Park is actually called Crab Park at Portside. And it is not named for those delectable creatures that scurry along the sand. Rather the name is an acronym for Create a Real Available Park.
I still intend on making it to Gastown and fillng you in on the stories of Gassy Jack and Granville and show you lots of pictures. As long as I don't get distracted I hope to do that soon.
I hope you find the beauty around you.
