Ready For Takeoff

Float planes take off from and land in Coal Harbour every few minutes from sunrise to sunset every day. Pictured is the sea plane base; there are at least a couple of  small airlines that cater to people wanting to fly from downtown Vancouver to downtown Victoria, or other cities on Vancouver Island. I took the photo standing on a walkway built into the "living roof" of the new Vancouver Convention Centre. Behind the seaplane base is the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, Stanley Park, and in the distance, the homes of West Vancouver steadily marching up the slopes of the North Shore mountains.
