If you are planning a visit in Vancouver, British Columbia, chances are you’ll visit the most touristy sites. Don’t get me wrong, Capilano Bridge and Stanley Park are awesome places to see, but this article will bring you somewhere different. Somewhere only the “locals” know. …Because I guess after 2 years of living in BC, we are considered locals right?
This weekend, we decided to spent our Sunday afternoon at the lake. This April’s weather is taking forever to warm up so we couldn’t wait any longer. We went to the beach! No summer clothes or bathing suits involved.. But our jackets and spring apparels instead. Still, we brought a few snacks and made a little picnic. The kids played in the playground and threw rocks in the water. That was summery enough for us!
