The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in Kitsilano

imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

On September 24, 2016 the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (a.k.a. Will and Kate) visited the Kitsilano Coast Guard Station in Vancouver. This small station can be found at the end of Whyte Ave. The road passes the Vancouver Museum, the Vancouver Academy of Music, the Vancouver Archives and (because it was still running) Bard on the Beach.

Our family decided, because it’s insanely close to where we live, to try to see what the hullaballo about the Prince and Princess was. Our expectations of seeing much of them were low and our lower expectations were met.

Below is a set of photos leading up to their visit and subsequent exit from English Bay via hovercraft.
