Saluting Port of Vancouver Ships and Mariners!

ALL IMAGES COPYRIGHT ROSEMARY HANNA Summertime, where living is easy down by the sea – for dreamers. Where big and small ships, and their mariners, protect Canada’s Port of entry. Safety for Canadians and visitors! To play, cruise, learn and maybe stay forever. Other ships are the heart of Vancouver’s working waterfront, Canada’s commercial drumbeat.  They are coming to work while cruise ships and commercial vessels enter the Port of Vancouver. Offshore, navy and rescue vessels. Some little workboats wait and dream of their next missions, ready to head out from port under a new command.

SONGS OF THE SEA 2016!

From loud crashing waves to gentlest evening waves, a repeated hush upon sandy shore. From peaceful murmurs, like miniature trumpets, of Barrow’s Goldeneye ducks, we love hanging out by the Pacific shores.NY DUSKcoming
