Whytecliff Park

Our weekly Sunday drive took us to West Vancouver’s Whytecliff Park. It’s a popular spot for families although, given that Covid-19 restrictions have only started to be lifted, we managed to find a parking spot quickly.

It’s too early in the year to see them yet but sea lions are also fans of the park, and can be seen sunning themselves on the beach during the Summer months.

Whytecliff Park is also home to over 200 marine animal species, making it popular with scuba divers. The park is noteworthy for being the first designated Marine Protected Area in Canada.

It was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, and spend some time in the fresh air.

How did you spend your Sunday?

Bonne journée!

Iona Beach Regional Park

Just north of the Vancouver International Airport, at the mouth of the Fraser River, is Iona Beach Regional Park. Popular with walkers and cyclists, it’s a lovely place to spend some time in the sunshine.

The area is dotted with logs that have been washed ashore over time.

At the end of the trail you’ll find a secluded beach.

The tide was out, so we ditched our bikes and went for a walk out onto the sand.

Selfie time!

Yes, that’s really me. I’ve dyed my hair dark on a whim.

On the way back along the trail I noticed ladybugs all over some half-dead thistles.


One last photo from the parking lot before heading off in search of lunch.

Bonne journée!
