I'll post some photos later. Stanley Park is a great feature point of Vancouver, BC. It's 10km in circumference with a dense wood and couple of lakes inside. It's pretty awesome, and one of my favourite places here. I've been incredibly lucky too over the last two days as weather has been AWESOME. Bright sunshine days, not too hot, not too cold, early twenty Celsius in the morning. Yesterday I started my walk near BC Place, then was able to use a sea wall past Coal Harbour, and entering Stanley Park via sea wall. Before I knew it I was circumnavigating Stanley Park right up to English Bay. Then took a shortcut through the edge of the park and Lost Lagoon. The views on the sea wall were fantastic.
This morning I was able to do the same. Brilliant sunshine weather again. I only partially did the sea wall up to the Lion's Gate Bridge, and then chose today to explore some of the center of the park, particularly Beaver Lake. There was a path to Beaver Lake at that junction. Sights were incredible. Also nice that I was able to walk with no one in sight for most of that stretch. Probably because of it being early. Been hiking from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m.
I took lots of photos. Not sure when I'll be able to publish them. But am having a terrific time. In the fresh air, and doing multi-hour hikes. Life can't get better than that!

Glad to hear that you are enjoying your vacation and that you found the 'lost lagoon' (they mis-placed it sometime ago - laugh). Can't wait to see those pictures.

Right. Those lagoons do come and go however. Checked out Beaver Lake this morning and it says somewhere that those lakes don't last forever. Eventually as plants die off in the lake, the lake becomes smaller and smaller and grows into a forest again. Sort of interesting.
