Capilano Salmon Hatchery

Many nice things to see here and it's free! Parking is free too.

Many nice things to see here and it’s free! Parking is free too.
Static displays of the different types of salmon, maps of their journeys in the ocean, fishing lures all shapes and colors. Real displays of the different salmonoids (babies) in little tanks.

Huge tanks with glass walls where the returning mature salmon can be viewed as they jump dramatically up each stage of the run, sometimes they don’t make it and get washed back to the next section (about 3 feet behind). Watch them swim against the water flowing rapidly downstream, they line themselves up with a “dead” spot in the current near the next obstacle, they wait then suddenly jump, go! go! You will cheer! (happens in winter only)
There are also several trails to walk here in the surrounding forest, one trail brings you upstream to a viewing platform where you can see the Cleveland Dam.

An amazing sight in the winter when there’s been a lot of rain, and they open the floodgates wide, wow! It’s like a water explosion. In summer it’s more tranquil, and nice and cool in the forest. You might see a blue heron or some unusual ducks, a bald eagle, sometimes “bear in the area” sign. There are nice tables to picnic in the forest.

Just off Capilano Road in North Vancouver. http://www-heb.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/facilities/capilano/capilano_e.htm

    Lorenzo Antico's 'Final Shot' Presents Last Shots From 33 Films

    A movie's parting shot is a crucial element in the sense that it could either make or break the lasting impression that it would have on its audience. It could either wrap things up quite nicely and leave viewers satisfied, or it could do otherwise. For many, it's often the first thing that comes to mind long after the final credits have rolled out.

    Bridge Hopping: Escaping Lisbon to Costa da Caparica Beach

    Thirty-five degrees. Summer. Lisbon. Seven hills. Worst combination ever! What better to do than to escape the horrible heat of a tropical summer day in Lisbon with its too many hills to a fabulous beach that is just one bridge away? It's enough to just cross the stunning 25th of April Bridge to arrive in an exotic paradise, with great waves and even better people.

    Light is Magical: A Talk With Li Hui

    Photography is not only an act of documentation or communication, it is also a way of seeing the world. The camera opens our eyes and lets us see what lies behind the obvious, and we start looking at things as potential subjects of a photograph. Every leak of light unveils secrets that talented photographers turn into a piece of art. Li Hui is one of those gifted artists. We talked to her about her work and her sensitive photographs that picture a wonderful vulnerability.

    Sometimes you see a camera and you just have to have it. I felt that way about this lovely little box camera. Looks don't mean a thing, I know, but in this case, the looks didn't deceive me.
