Default Adventures On The Seawall

Here's my shortest TR ever (and I've done a few). Least elevation gain too.

Pictures have captions:









One for the road:



The next TR will be up some mountain probably.

I love it when it's windy and the waves crash over the seawall like that. Was that today? I was going to head there today too but somehow couldn't get my act together. Now I wish I had, what a gorgeous day!

"It looks like you were the only one out there having fun."

Not the only one as I ventured out as well - it was a little windy on the Seawall today - I managed to walk from Burrard St to the Park entrance this morning and it was bloody cold walking into that stiff wind but the the rewards of the fresh air and spectacular views made up for the discomfort of getting soaked by one of those rogue waves.

Cheers

Good one Simon - I like that pic of the gull. It was a great day to be near the water.
I was watching the tugs and the new Seabus from the relative comfort of Lonsdale Quay yesterday morning.
I hope that your camera is OK.

Great bridge shot Simon!
Be warned - Stanley Park long exposures can be addicting.
