Our Alaska cruise started in Vancouver. We arrived a day early so we had time for sightseeing. The Vancouver Lookout Tower gives a bird’s-eye view of this nice city. One gets a good look at the English Bay, the harbor, bridges, and floatplane taking off at the busy water airport. But I was most surprised and fascinated by the many roof top gardens.
This yellow spot caught my eye, four people are busy with the plantings, I wonder what that yellow plant is?
Gardens in the sky, with fire places, BBQ grills, benches and tables…
Walking through Vancouver it is noticeable what a very clean and beautiful city it is, with lots of small parks with water features tucked in every corner. But my eyes keep looking up to the rooftop gardens …
… alright, I almost ran into this cute dogwood tree

A cheerful front yard is the last picture for this first post of our trip.
