The metropolitan area of Vancouver is the third most populous metropolitan area in Canada and the most populous in Western Canada. With 5,249 people per square kilometre (13,590 per square mile), the City of Vancouver is the most densely populated Canadian municipality among those with 5,000 residents or more. Vancouver is one of the most ethnically and linguistically diverse cities in Canada; 52% of its residents do not speak English as their first language. The original settlement, named Gastown, grew around the Hastings Mill logging sawmill and a nearby tavern, both established in 1867.
I have been to Vancouver several times but only took photographs on this trip. Other visits were on business. We arrived from Victoria well into the afternoon so there was a limited amount of time to take pictures. Most of our time was spent in Stanley Park. As you can see, it is a beautiful city combining sea and mountains.
