Dramatic Waterfront

IMGP9384

December ushered in a fresh dose of stormy weather, following November’s sharp, clear snapping cold (unusual for balmy Vancouver).

Weather shifts make dramatic skies, intense sea-lighting effects below the ever dramatic coast and mountain/skyscraper backdrop.IMGP9674

This exhibition invites visitors to embark on a self-guided south-to-north coastal sea voyage: highlighting ships, salty glimpses into local histories, and hidden anchorages. 

MV Salt Mist (ex-Kagome), centerpiece of this exhibit, was among the swiftest of night vessels plying straits southbound with her cargos of contraband liquor. Explore BC’s coast from the southern Gulf Islands to Discovery Passage and North.

Marine artwork in this exhibit captures the imagined moods of coastal history, inspired by early mariners, shipbuilders and those who love the music of the waves.

Not quite art-by-the sea, this beautiful watershed forms a pristine water bowl of thirst-quenching liquid for Vancouver. Overlooking Cleveland Dam and ‘The Lions’ – twin peaks above, a picnic site.

Venture deeper into the watershed with Metro Vancouver tour guides: historical remnants, ongoing fishery innovations – how DO those salmon return – and fascinating looks from “inside out” at high altitude lakes, peaks, wildlife and plant communities.Copy of IMGP6782
