Point Atkinson Lighthouse Park and Spanish Bank Beach – Kitsilano

Few nice days that we spent outside, as most of people in Vancouver area do when it is not raining. On Friday we went to Point Atkinson Lighthouse Park. Last time we were here it was November, days were short and not so warm. Now everything looked much brighter and there was a certain warmth in the breeze even though distant mountains are still under snow.

Not too many screaming kids around πŸ˜› Free climbers used the opportunity to practice on Juniper Point.

Next day we went to Museum of Antropology – the post is still in progress so you will have to wait – and went down to Spanish Bank Beach. A tide was low, we've seen many people walking barefoot like it is a summer. But water was too cold for me :psmurf:

I made 180 degrees photo. Some shades are still visible but in general I am happy with results :happy:

    Great 360! And the high shot of the sound is really excellent. Ah you know seeing these types of photos on your posts makes me ache to visit the coast so much. But I probably won't be able to do that until 2013. 😦

  10. Spaggyj says:

    Hahahahaha! I keep seeing lighthouses frolicking in the surf in my head πŸ˜†

    It's nice to see the setting of Vancouver. Sea and mountains :up:I respect rock climbers but I couldn't ever do that :insane:

    Adele, I wanted to try it, long time ago when one of my friends joined a club in Belgrade. But at the end, Martial Arts were much more interesting, so I gave up the idea. But it is interesting to watch them anyway πŸ˜€

  13. gdare says:

    Ed, sorry to hear that. Maybe you should follow what tourist agencies has to offer, sometimes they have very cheap deals :up:Kimmie πŸ˜€

    Last time I was in Vancouver we had a picnic at Spanish Bank Beach and played volleyball. Great day, thanks or reminding me of it. πŸ™‚

  27. gdare says:

    No problem πŸ˜€ It was a nice and warm day and it would have been wrong to stay inside πŸ™‚

  28. Mickeyjoe-Irl says:

    You have to take advantage of the weather when it comes, I've learned that.

  29. gdare says:

    We have more than a week of excellent weather here, feels like (Canadian) summer :DLast Saturday we went to Bowen Island :happy:

  30. Mickeyjoe-Irl says:

    Feels more like winter here. But we are getting some patchy sun.

  31. gdare says:

    It was very warm in southern east Europe for last two weeks, almost 30C. Now they have a lot of rain and on some mountains even snow :doh:

  32. Mickeyjoe-Irl says:

    No snow, yet :left: :right: but we are getting regular hail showers. :yuck:
