Good morning, Vancouver

Depictions of the Pacific Northwest don’t get much more accurate than this photo. The Bayshore West Marina and its expensive boats sit in the foreground of a narrow inlet. The entrance to Stanley Park, guarded by tall evergreen trees, lies shrouded by a veil of fog under drizzly skies. To the left, tall condominiums jut out of the cityscape, and you can only imagine how much fleece and North Face gear are stored within those doors. The squawk of seagulls and the sight of kayakers are now present – though not depicted in the photo – as the city of Vancouver awakens to a Saturday in which the Kings will face the Canucks at Rogers Arena.
