Deep Cove Day . . . .

Neither "drf" nor I had been to Deep Cove, northeast of Vancouver, so today we hopped on Translink bus #211 and went out there for the afternoon.

The day started out "iffy", but became progressively better. As I am writing this, it is gorgeous.


Deep Cove is a
charming waterfront community on Indian Arm which is off the Burrard Inlet. As a reference to those familiar with Vancouver, Burrard Inlet is the body of water that the Lion's Gate Bridge spans. In addition to the water, it is also surrounded by mountains, so the scenery is beautiful. Lots of shops, restaurants boutiques line the downtown area, and there is easy access to a hiking trail through the mountains. We took a short hike - about 40 minutes each way to a point overlooking the harbour and town.





Glad we
went, and we'll be back.







Tonight is the fireworks finale and tomorrow is the Gay Pride parade.


Life is good . . . .

Did you see any rowers on the water?

Some rowers, but LOTS of kayakers. We checked out the rental place and discovered that all boats were booked until after 7:00 pm.

It is a holiday weekend, after all . . . .
