Vancouver Seawall is very long, and runs from
the beaches near the University of British Columbia all the way to Canada Place. This trip report covers a
short stretch of the Seawall between Denman Street and Canada Place.
1. We are on Denman Street,
ready to cross Georgia Street and walk one block to the Seawall. A
bicycle rental shop is right behind our back.
