The first cruise ship of the 2014 season arrives in Vancouver

Yesterday April 28, 2014 the Carnival Miracle made a port stop here in Vancouver.

This ship will be homeporting in Seattle this season but needed to make a stop in a "foreign port" to satisfy US law.

While down at Canada Place I ventured over to the Convention Center and Jack Poole Plaza and much to my delight and many others visiting the Olympic cauldron was lit.

Yesterday was a day of remembrance to those workers killed or injured on the job and there was a special memorial ceremony at the Plaza and the good folks at Fortis - our main gas supplier - picked up the tab for it to be on.

and finally the area around Canada Place is always picuresque but right now the tulips are out making for some great photo shots - here are two of my favorites.
