Vancouver’s been the most generous hostess with her sunshine and blue skies this summer, and on this rainy evening I’m nervously expecting Fall to finally catch up with us. That being said, I managed to remember to bring my camera enough times to catch some memories of sunsets and beaches over the last few weeks – memories that should get help me get through the fog and rain that is Vancouver in the cooler months.
We rented bikes a few weeks ago and rode around the seawall, with a break for laying on 3rd beach and enjoying some sun and ocean water. It still boggles my mind that I live by the ocean – salt water and tides and seaweed and sand. Could a girl be luckier than to live by the ocean?
We’ve also discovered a few beaches close to home – some more secluded than others, and have taken advantage by smuggling in a bottle or two of wine. Those living by the beach have gone in and made paths and installed swings on trees, those visiting do a bit of fishing or bathe in the sun, catching both fish and rays. It’s a beautiful thing.
Oh hey, and the tide! I’ve been caught off guard by the tide; rising so fast – which I never expected. Beaches disappear at night and reappear in the morning, with the waves leaving small memories of the night on it’s sands and behind the logs. The logs! I love the logs. They certainly give the beach perfect resting spots for those on a romantic stroll.
How has your summer gone?
