Vancouver is an amazing city. Before moving here, I never could imagine living in the place where ocean meets mountains. And I can see that vancouverites feel a natural beauty of this land the same way I feel it. There are benches in all the beautiful places and they are always set in such a way to see majestic ocean waters, or numerous lakes rife with efficient otters, beavers and various birds, or centuries-old blue mountains.
My the most favorite places are small beaches with logs scattered on the sand. You can seat silently feeling wooden surface with your fingertips and wait for sun to sink into the ocean. If you are quiet and sharp-eyed enough (especially when it comes to your mind’s eye), may be you can see a whale waiting for sunset in the dark water. And if you can see him, may be you can wait for sunset together.
