A Sunny Sunday Walk along the Seawall

We went out for a lovely walk along the Seawall in West Vancouver this afternoon. The Seawall walk is about 5 km along the shoreline and most of the way there is a nice paved walking path. It was quite warm today as well.

This is a view of West Vancouver from the Ambleside Beach area. The beach area was very busy today but not many people venturing into the cold water, although there were a couple of brave souls in the water.

Here is Jim sitting along the walking path. In behind Jim on the left of the picture -- the small bit of land sticking out is the University Endowment Lands. (Which is where I work) I always get a chuckle out of the fact that I can see across the water to where I work and then it takes me 35 minutes to drive there.

The Seawall is a really nice place to walk - I have been walking along the seawall a couple of times a week this past couple of weeks just to get a little exercise. The weather here has been so sunny and warm - we have not yet entered the rainy, wet Autumn weather pattern we are so well known for here on the west coast. So we must take advantage of the sun when we have it.

Another view of Ambleside Beach. This view looks more northwards, the buildings are apartments in West Vancouver.

And this is a view of the "Doggy Park" the south end of the Beach and close to the Capilano River the city has made a small dog park. It was just full of dogs and kids and people today -- the dogs were quite happy to go in the cold water. This view looks southward - the bridge is the Lions Gate Bridge and the land in the background is Stanley Park, and the building are downtown Vancouver in this picture.
