The Vancouver Seawall is perhaps the greatest "city" seven mile walk in the world.
Just above the Lions Gate bridge (the nearest thing to the Golden Gate Bridge) rests the Prospect Point Cafe. From the deck of the restaurant you can watch Cruise ships leave for Alaska and freighters leave for every port in the world. Sea planes with their mosquito like sound take off from Vancouver's inner harbour for Vancouver Island and secluded places way beyond.
A little over 500 yards away, a great Canadian Eagle is preparing its nest for a couple of eggs it will lay shortly. The fifty foot rock "Siwash" with its stunning legend is less than two kilos away.
The seawall from Lions Gate to the rock has been temporarily closed for rock scaling so I venture up the steep incline to "The Point' The menu is inviting, and Manuel a dynamic waiter from Espana helps me decide on what snack I should have.The Seafood chowder with a chunk of bread and a latte to follow are the orders of the day. For about ten bucks, I tuck into the best ever seafood chowder. The Sockeye salmon pieces along with other chunks of fish are embedded on a very thick and tasty broth. I have not in a long very long time enjoyed a chowder as much as this.
Don't miss this delight if ever you are on a walk or drive around the great Stanley Park in Vancouver. So much more to see and do than I have said. O', don't forget to see the nine oclock cannon (goes off at precisely 9.00 pm every night) About fifty feet from Halleluliah Point .
