Not quite the big boat, but definitely a far flung place. Mosquito just outside Denali National Park.

Good ol' Burrard St. bridge, need to get back to Van City sooner than later.

Insanely great shot especially considering it's from a web cam!

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

English Bay seems to be a perfect natural port and a big one.

On a smaller scale but with a lot of space for anchoring (it is not very deep) one of the best that I know is Fornells, Minorca, Balearic Islands, a favorite place and on top of my daughter's list. Last year we have been there again. It is not only the port that offers very good shelter, the small village is wonderful and they still manage to have good local porducts, made there, not in China

If you go there don't miss the local shoes, the Albarcas. It is easy to know of what I am talking about, look at the feet. Everybody is using them. Fabulous design that have made it trough the centuries. Google for have a look at them.

Actually, English Bay is what used to be called a Roadstead, it's merely an anchorage for ships waiting to enter the harbour. - the harbour is far more protected - a near perfect port.

From time to time the weather really gets up and boats & ships end up on the beaches in the lower left of the attached picture.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
