Rockweed, a type of seaweed found on rocks along the shore, is common everywhere as seen in the two photos above. Then below you can see a surprise: some minnows swimming amongst the rocks. Unfortunately, I am uncertain of the species but they are more colourful in person than this photo might indicate (i.e. blue and a thin stripe of red perhaps).
Canada geese can be found where ever you look along the water (Burrard Inlet, Lost Lagoon, etc) in Stanley Park and area. The gaggle of geese above is swimming along the shoreline on Burrard Inlet as the tide comes in. Take the time to enjoy and appreciate nature where ever you live. Go for that long, peaceful walk to enjoy all that it offers! - Volker
