We traded in the bikes for the car this weekend and headed out to Boundary Bay for a morning session at the beach. If you look at Boundary Bay on Google Maps, you can see how connected it is to the southern Gulf Islands like Salt Spring and Galiano—super wild feeling, loads of grasses and sun bleached logs. I have to say the fish and chips on offer put the West Side beaches to shame, well worth the trip.
We spent the entire BC Day long weekend on our bikes. Saturday up to the Trout Lake Farmers Market, Sunday up to The Bay for towels and a saucepan (Jody’s panniers and basket are being well used) then Monday to Stanley Park and Kits Beach. From checking Douglas Coupland’s Digital Orca to grabbing some sustainable BC Seafood at the Feastro Truck to an evening picnic in Vanier Park to a fabulous Zuchinni Carbonara pasta at home—life is truly better on a bike.
