ahhh... so many sunshiney days and so many beaches ;o) (I have to make the most of it, I've heard lots about Vancouver's rain!)
Locarno Beach and BBQ
BBQ fun with Robert and fellow hikers, Su and a few more couch surfers!

Second beach pool
English guy doing a performance on English Bay
After picking up Ruth from the airport and shimmying through the pre-Pride street party on Davie, we got some pizza and sat on the beach... here's our view!
Thanks to Kay who's bike I have! Cycled from Commercial Drive heading for English Bay but couldn't resist a stop off here :o)
And then of course... there's Wreck Beach...
where clothing is optional, the smell of weed unmistakeable, someone'll mix up a cocktail for you out of their backpack and hawkers sell mushroom maccaroons!
Down trail 6 (it's much worse going up trail 6!) to get to Wreck Beach 200ft below.
me and Jonathan (my couch host in Kitsilano) decided to be beach bums for the day so of course we went to Wreck Beach. In between swims in the sea, watched police checking for booze, ignoring the smokers, hearing hawkers selling maccaroons, brownies and beer, had a hawaiian cocktail and got chatting to Kiwi lawyer who also decided to be a beach bum for the day. The day's excitement also included a hovercraft coming to the rescue of some poor guy who'd erm...had a little bit too much to drink or the maccaroon didn't go down so well!
