Rare sighting of 150-200 Pacific white-sided wild dolphins at West Vancouver. Turn on your speakers.

There's a very brief videoclip if you don't want to read the little posting. It really is magical. Yes, I've seen these up close in the wild. smile YOu can see how they appear friendly, very different feeling than seeing a whale. With whale, one just wonders if the boat might accidentally tip with the behomoths underwater.

This area actually is right by a municipality which is only local transit bus ride from home.

Enjoy!

As noted, I haven't visited the Vancouver Aquarium where they do have dolphins and a beluga whale, etc. It's a 25 min. bike ride or less from home and I've been in Vancouver for nearly 8 yrs.

The mountains and ocean shown in the short clip (Done quite professionally. I didn't do it.) do give a general feel of what it is like along our coast, as one travels north of Vancouver by boat.

Orchid, that's funny that you haven't visited the aquarium. It's usually that way. We have seen most of the sights around us through showing our house guests. Hubby and I went to the Vancouver aquarium. We were impressed.

Dolphins have such fun. I love to watch them jump and roll; and
they always look like they're smiling!

WOW! Vancouver looks like such a beautiful place to live. I love the mountains and ocean pictured. YOu sound like me orchid, live in Vegas where there are new shows all the time but dso I go to them, NO, not unless I have guests that want to go. Did the same thing in CHicago with the museums, the zoo, aquarium and all the other wonderful sights to see. Wonder why we do that?

Yes, those dolphins in the video are enchanting. It's just incredible. The original videographer was extremely fortunately to have seen so many of them. The dolphins live are naturally playfully. It is an amazing experience to see them live in the wild, not in any aquarium or any show. One sees their natural behaviours.

Well, re sights in our own city..I still haven't seen certain things. Other things I have. We also have visited some of the Gulf Islands off the coast of Vancouver by Vancouver Island. There is a great deal to explore within 100 kms. radius in our region since there is preserved and rocky parkland going into the mountains.

The only time I go to the sights around here, is when I have
out of town company or groovy wants me to go. I see more
stuff like zoos and aquariums when WB and I travel here and there. I like boating but he doesn't. So no cruises R in
the future.

All of the boomers that can should get together, like when they came here to Vegas, and we should take a cruise. What a blast that would be!

Because we know those sights are always there. Actually I am just starting to read the things going on near us. It's an incredible amount. On mother's day, the botanical garden had a huge spring festival. I took my mother there, and guess what...I drove around 45 minutes and couldn't find a parking space. So we went out to a Chinese restaurant, drove home, and enjoyed the rest of the day on our terrace. My son came with his family, and my mother truly enjoyed her great grandchildren. They plant kisses on her face and give her big smiles. Yes, she melts.

Chatty, I think we should go see the Chippendales together...
