The ancient feel of the forests, its wildlife and the wonderful people are some of my favorite things about Vancouver. Some of these were taken by my boyfriend but I loved them so much I had to share.
Slowly coming back to this place after such a long hiatus – been working and traveling here and there….marathoning through entire shows on Netflix…you know, the usual – Hoping to share some great shots and fond memories of the past few months as I edit my way through them though! This is, of course, my epilogue/diversion/excuse for yet another post of Vancouver from over a year ago (I swear the next post will be from sometime this year! PROMISE.)
Adventure time!! is what Greg and I did back in September and boy, did we have one hell of a time. Two weeks of non-stop road trips, hiking mountains, biking around the city, caving, kayaking, exploring and overindulging on breakfast nooks around the downtown core. It was a fantastic trip, even more so because it was Greg’s first time (excluding international) traveling outside our comfy but very mountain-less province of Ontario and I’ll write for him that he loved it! Everything from the real mountains (I’m looking at you Blue), the salty ocean and the designated bike lanes. I’m just going to put it out there, the West coast is where the heart is, even with the East coast putting up a good case of the “love me!”, my heart will remain in the west. That is until the East decides to bust out their ultimate weapon of mass cuteness, monsieur puffin, then all bets are off.

We visited Cape Spear (so foggy!) where besides the lighthouse there are some really cool army barracks from the war that you can walk through. Throughout our trip up the east coast we camped out just about anywhere, one night being on cliff near Bonavista. We also made some friends along the way, my favorite being the puffins or otherwise known as “Monsieur Pouffe” in some circles (Kristin and I exclusively). Fun fact: A puffin’s beak is colourful only when it is mating season, otherwise its beak is black.
