Sunrise in Vancouver

I managed to get pulled into a last minute trip out to Vancouver this week. I certainly don’t mind travel, even last minute and for only two days worth of work across the continent, but I certainly have some sleep adjustment issues, especially on the first night. And with only three nights out west before coming back, I didn’t even really try to adjust. So at 6am EST on Monday morning I was awake, and many in Vancouver hadn’t yet gone to sleep yet – it was only 3am there, as evidenced by the late night ski slope having its lights still on.

I was staying at the Renaissance on Vancouver Harbor, and managed to get a great room with a harbor view on the top floor, overlooking the float plane docks. And for a flying nut like me that meant plenty of opportunity to watch the planes taking off and landing in the morning as the sun came up and Vancouver came to life. Lucky me!!

So in addition to phenomenal sushi, I also had great views each morning, and since I was awake anyways, I snapped a couple pictures as well.
