A run along the Stanley Park Seawall completed my stay in Vancouver. I read that the wall was built as a precaution to erosion in the 1920s and that it took almost six decades to complete. It gates the entire 1,000-acre park filled with evergreens, fir, hemlock, and cedar trees, which will make you forget that downtown Vancouver is only a few blocks away. The circular route of the seawall is almost 6 miles–I didn't run the entire loop of course, but I did pass by the Lost Lagoon, the Rowing Club House, and the Totem Park on the way to my finish line, the Brockton Point and Lighthouse.
