North Shore

Today we drive over to the North Shore of Vancouver, across the Port Mann Bridge which spans the Burrard Inlet. Driving east along the inlet we come to a little village called Deep Cove, with boats and canoes in abundance. Children are playing on the beach and in the water, and there is a very nice coffee shop.

Further west along Highway 1 we turn off to Lynn Canyon. It has trails through shady trees, a deep creek, and a swaying suspension bridge, which is a test of the nerves.

Later we ascend the long road up to the Cypress Bowl, the mountain where some 2010 Winter Olympics ski jumping and snow boarding events were held. No snow today, and the view is hazy. But still beautiful.

Horseshoe Bay, at the far end of North Shore, is where the ferries for Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast come in. Time for another coffee while we watch the scenery.
