Jim: Today was the nicest day I’ve seen yet in Vancouver. Saturday afternoon Larra and I went with her daughter, Michelle, and Michelle’s husband Jarrod to Golden Ears Provincial Park, about 45 minutes from Surrey. Temperatures in the 30’s C (80’s F), and not a cloud in the sky.
We walked along the river, down to North Beach on Alouette Lake. The mountains, the lake, the view was incredible. Some of the mountains still had snow on them. It was a great day trip.
Oh… this was the first time I saw sand on a “beach” in British Columbia! It was mixed with a lot of rocks, of course, but there was still sand.
