Photo: Algonquin on the Sea

Most days, all you're going to see on the waters of Burrard Inlet are container ships, tugboats, personal pleasure craft, and one or two of the SeaBuses. Every once in a while, though, you'll find the stark lines of a warship there. HMCS Algonquin, one of Canada's three remaining Iroquois-class air defense destroyers, arrived at Canada Place in Vancouver a couple of days ago for the Canada Day festivities. She does look subtly meaner to my eyes than the Halifax-class frigates, even though all those VLS cells toward the bow only contain surface-to-air missiles - if Wikipedia is accurate, that is.
