Over the bridge

This morning we walked over the Burrard Street Bridge and along to the Maritime Museum. 

There is a  dock in Heritage Harbour, behind the museum, where a small False Creek ferry takes passengers to and from the Aquatic Centre, Granville Island and other stops around the harbour. There are several boats at this dock that have significant historic value. It was interesting to read the descriptions that are posted on each vessel...well worth a visit!

The North Star of Herschel Island is moored at the dock now. It is the last of the sailing Arctic fur trading ships, built in 1935 in San Francisco. She is rigged and ready to sail!
