I wasn't sure whether I could, or couldn't ride. I can still hardly walk but the weather was so nice that a ride was arranged on short notice. I thought that a route somewhere with less stop lights and great scenery was what the doctor ordered.
My Pink crocs got in touch with some friendly Yellow Crocs and soon they were together chatting away like old friends
The master of the Yellow Crocs finally made it to the rendezvous point in North Vancouver. After a quick tire pressure check and fill, we were off
After a quick sprint northward on the Sea-to-sky highway we stopped to stretch our legs at Britannia Beach and looked at all the trinkets for sale
We are not consumers so we mounted our steeds and were soon parked on the Cleveland Avenue, the main Street of Squamish, BC. This is a small town about half way to Whistler. You can tell it's a small town for lack of parking meters.
We quickly remove our riding attire and change into something more casual for walking about the farmers market, which is held every Saturday from 10a - 3p for the summer
Soon we found ourselves sitting in a local restaurant for some fish & chips. No we were not really hungry but it is tradition to get something to eat while midstream into an afternoons ride . It was an excellent white fish from Australia which name we cannot remember. I am sure Geoff James has had many of these during his travels
Geoff is very serious with his fish and you will often find him sporting his favourite Red Shorts whenever he orders fish & chips, and also whilst fishing.
Before we head back to town, we mosey over to the local marina
Before we part our ways, we have one last break to enjoy the warm sunny day at Whytecliff Park, West Vancouver, BC. This is a favourite spot for scuba divers
The island is accessible during low tides by walking over on the rock causeway.
Sunday we decide to take the 'Vette out for a relaxing drive for brunch, then head over to Horseshoe Bay. It is nice to be able to enjoy the wind in your hair and be able to enjoy the day without all that riding attire.
We arrive at Horseshoe Bay and find a shortage of parking spots. It seems that everyone from Vancouver is here
So I decide to go to my favourite place to sit on the rocks and enjoy the water passing by. It is an excellent location with a panoramic view of the Vancouver skyline.
You are able to see West Vancouver (on the left), the Lion's Gate Bridge, Stanley Park and the tall buildings of the Downtown Area
There is also a private beach and cove
it was such a nice day that we decided to grab a cheap dinner down at the Yaohan Centre, Richmond, BC and bring it home
I mean, where else can you spend $20. and have enough food for two days. Or conversely feed 4 people for $5. each. This was less expensive than our brunch
I hope I didn't overdue it. Now my foot hurts and it didn't hurt yesterday .
