In Photos: Enjoying Canada’s British Columbia
For more than 100 years, the lighthouse on Brockton Point in Stanley Park has shone its beam across the harbor, warning sailors of the hazards of the offshore reef and rocky shore.
Tucked away on the easternmost point of Stanley Park, it’s well worth the walk— or cycle— around the seawall to be rewarded with unspoiled views of the lighthouse’s cheery striped red and white walls set against those softly sloping North Shore mountains and the glittering lights of Lonsdale Quay.
Magic hour, when Vancouver’s gleaming glass high rises reflect the apricot sunset and the mountains glow pink. Stroll down to English Bay to join the social crowds watching and playing beach volleyball, or enjoying the sunset over a creamy gelato.
Find a log to sit on, wriggle your toes in the sand and watch nature set the sky on fire. As the sun sinks into the waves and the city lights begin to shine, hop on board to see those lights reflected in the waters.
