Check-out was 11:00 so no need to rush this morning. Of course then I checked the train which led to that little adventure covered in my other post.
Once all had been confirmed I could relax and return to sightseeing. On the way to the station I had passed BC Place, the stadium that was used for the Winter Olympics. so on the way back I paused to take some shots. This one is a fairly conventional one but I took some close ups of the side that I'll try and work with for Instagram.
Looking back from the stadium I noticed the paintings under this pier.
I wandered a bit and found some lunch, then made my way to the Vancouver Art Gallery. When buying my ticket they were so immensely proud of their collection of Canadian art. That was great to see. It wasn't a huge collection but there was a wide selection of eras and styles. Some major areas were being set up for other exhibitions so I suspect I missed some things.
The main exhibition was works by Landon Mackenzie and she had chosen works by a famous Canadian artist Emily Carr to show along side hers. I thought it was a great idea and the works and styles really complemented each other. And it was a great way for Landon for pay homage to Emily Carr.
After the gallery I decided to take one last look at the bay. It was blue and clear by then. I took some more pictures but you've seen what the bay looks like already.
Vancouver is a very shiny city. Lots of glass buildings. One side effect of that is that you'll often see two different styles of architecture juxtaposed in reflection.
I walked past a fountain I've seen a few times so I thought I'd take a shot from a different angle.
I took some pictures of this building on my first day from across the road. I took these close ups today to show the incredible detail on the fascade and doorway.
Farewell Vancouver. It's been fun.
