These photos were taken from a sea-plane, on the way from Whistler to Victoria. We were so lucky that the weather was so clear, and that we could see so much. Craig sat shotgun and was able to hear all the traffic control through his massive green headphones. After taking off from a lake in Whistler and flying over snowy mountains and lakes made turquoise by glacier stones, we flew slowly over the the city of Vancouver. Much like Cape Town, the shape of Vancouver is designed by its geographical constraints – Stanley Park, Granville Island and the Downtown Peninsular placed more perfectly than had the city been designed by a person. In the background, we saw the mountains over which we had just flown – the Coast Mountain Range – stretching into the interior of British Columbia.
