Today English Bay was crowded with several tankers. They were all waiting for their turn to dock and be unloaded. Vancouver harbor has enough capacity for them all to stay in, but most tankers do not do so because of the expensive mooring charge. They save money by anchoring in English Bay. It is easy to distinguish anchoring tankers. They are all parallel to the wind direction. Although they are huge and look motionless, they are changing their direction according to the wind. The power of wind is overwhelming. In Tokyo I was living without noticing the wind, but here in Vancouver, I often feel and recognize the power of it.
