I can't believe it's already the last day of summer! To commemorate this bittersweet occasion, here are a few pictures from one of my favourite days this past summer when my friend Jen and I went to Whytecliff Park in West Vancouver. Even though it's so close, I had never been before. Whaaaaat?!?! I know, I know. Shame on me.
It's absolutely gorgeous, and I should have gone sooner. I had the best time scrambling along the rocks and climbing around the rugged rock faces... In fact, I may have gotten a kid in trouble from his mum for trying to copy what I was doing. Yes, that's right, I'm a mature grown woman. Totally. Most of the time. Ok, some of the time.
We hung out on the beach, hiked around some of the trails and admired all the giant houses overlooking the beach that we will never be able to afford. We capped off the afternoon with a trip to the concession for some burgers and then made our merry way home.
Here's to exploring beautiful places in your own (proverbial) backyard.
