The photo above shows ferns on a rock face along the seawall between the 2nd and 3rd beaches. And below, the 3rd beach was crowded as opposed to the beaches of the morning.
At Siwash Rock I saw a cruiseship exiting the 1st Narrows at Burrard Inlet and entering English Bay. Then in the pic below I took a series of photos of the wave action on the rocks along the seawall. The ones posted are likely the best and I could spend hours watching the water do its thing plus the seaweed flowing back and forth in the rushing water.
There is a barnicle and seaweed encrusted rock in the photo above and below you can see the water rushing away from the seaweed encrusting another rock.
There is colour in all sorts of places such as above the 3rd beach. The palm trees and bright flowers make the scene look like it is in a more tropical setting!
Yet another scene of 3rd beach above and then some timber found along the wall further down toward the 2nd beach. You'll notice the driftwood coming to good use on the beaches.
Flowers, both wild and domestic, have fascinated me since my early childhood and so have the insects, birds and animals that frequent them. The above pic shows a bumblebee (Bombus ssp) at work doing its thing. Then Canada geese are everywhere such as the ones flying overhead at Sunset Beach.
