The seawall winds it’s way around the entire perimeter of Stanley Park so you are always by the water.
In the water are otters and the statue, “Girl in a swimsuit.”
And as you turn the west corner you come across the noon cannon all fenced up to protect it, from the otters, I guess. Each day at noon the cannon does fire.

Above is a section of the 22 kilometer long Stanley Park Seawall. Construction of it began in 1917 and was declared officially completed in 1980 but since then it has been extended outside of the park. Much of the work done on it in its first 35 years of construction was overseen by master stone mason James Cunningham.
In the above photo I brought out the blue coloring of the rock to show you that Cunningham went to great lengths to use rock from the same source. The below image uses the rocks coloring to match it to the blue night sky and as contrast to the red of the lunar eclipse. Both the moon and the planet, Venus, if I remember correctly, are from a different photograph of mine.

Siwash Rock is one of the more popular sights along the Stanley Park Seawall and one of the more photographed ones. In the last of this series of posts on it is, first, it as viewed from the south, second, my attempt to show it at sunset and, lastly with an eagle flyby. Hope you enjoyed the Siwash Rock Posts.
