Scenes from Around Here: Whytecliff Park

 
IMG_4306

Reason #286 why I love summers Vancouver – Whytecliff Park; the sun, the rocky beaches and the magnificent views…
Summer around these parts makes the other miserable nine months almost bearable, there’s nowhere else I’d rather be!

“Whytecliff Park (15.63 hectares in size) is located in a beautiful corner of Howe Sound with a rugged coastline and spectacular views of colourful mountains and passing boats. The waters off the Park became Canada’s first Salt Water Marine Protected Area (MPA) in 1993 and are now famous for its incredible underwater diving. Five hectares (12.3 acres) of this park contains a playground, picnic spots, a swimming beach, tennis courts and an observation pavilion from which to admire the stunning views.”

The promise of sun and higher temperatures this weekend has me dreaming of summer! Can’t want to relive all this again…

Scenes From Around Here: Deep Cove

 
Being out in Deep Cove always feels like a little adventure, there’s just so much to do and discover.
Just a little over ten kilometres from downtown, Deep Cove feels worlds away with its laid-back small town charm, exceptionally scenic views and outdoor recreation.
Deep Cove has hiking, kayaking, rowing and paddleboarding, incredible vistas, quaint shops and restaurants, a museum, ice cream and the best doughnuts!

Scenes From Around Here: Lynn Canyon Park

 
I love Lynn Canyon Park, there’s so much to see and do.
Moss covered trees, gushing waterfalls, trails, tall trees and wooded forest, a siphon coffee serving café and of course, a suspension bridge.

Ten (Not So Random) Pictures: Lynn Canyon Park

It took me a while (seven years to be exact) but I finally went to Lynn Canyon Park.
I walked the suspension bridge, hiked and had delectable lunch and coffee at the café.
I can’t wait to go back in the summer.
