Below you can see the German Friendship Globe Fountain in a park alongside the seawall. You can push on this 2 1/2 tonne globe and it will spin as it says below. A gift from the local German community to West Vancouver. Kids love it.
The globe fountain consists of a square granite water basin with a precisely machined impression that fits a three foot diameter granite ball engraved with the continents of the world. The 2 1/2 tonne granite globe floats on a thin pressurized cushion of water which allows it to be turned at the touch of a hand.Looking across the water to the south side of the harbour
I'm not sure whether to consider this graffiti or art. These rocks line the sea wall and some one has made these mosaic fish with broken ceramic
I hope you can see the heron in the centre. He was watching me very carefully as I went by and turned his head to follow my path
Looking towards the Lions Gate Bridge with downtown past the bridge and Stanley Park on the right. You can see logging is a big industry and the floaters end up on the beach along with the rocks
We all hate this floral clock, it's so old fashioned and there was a little park which had a beautiful view before they built this monstrosity. You would think that they could plant some decent colourful flowers if they are going to have it, wouldn't you?
Well after a long walk it's time for lunch and a caffé latte don't you think?
