This is Canada Place Convention Center on beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia's waterfront. It is designed to look like a ship. It juts out into the water and has a roof that looks much like sails. At the entrance to Canada Place is a stand of flags. There are some Canada flags....The Maple Leaf, of course. Also there is a flag from each of Canada's 10 provinces and 3 territories. Aren't they pretty and colourful?
We love to toodle around the Place whenever we are downtown. Especially when there are cruise ships lined up on either side of it. I love to see the faces of the tourists as they are astonished by the beauty of our city. I must say, disembarking at Canada Place, the tourists get a pretty nice first impression of Vancouver. Blue ocean, Mountains all around, and a city of high rises gleaming like jewels. Who knows... Maybe someday your ship will come in.
