I was somewhat disappointed after I got home and watched this video I took of Okanagan Lake because I hadn't spent the time to take a nice photo. It was quite picturesque.
The colour scheme of this boy's jacket just so happens to match the colour scheme of the cargo ships in the bay, but I don't think he planned it that way. People of all ages admire the views from Jericho Beach Park.
Crescent Beach is yet another beautiful part of Vancouver. An off-leash dogpark, walking trails, sand, marsh and bird sanctuary mean there's something for everybody. It was a nice way to spend a sunny weekend afternoon alongside numerous birders with binoculars and cameras around their necks. Parking was plentiful, as were the establishments to stop for a gelato, lunch or coffee. After sifting through and inadvertently stepping on a number of dismembered crab legs left strewn about the sand (the tide was out), I found some shells nicely backlit by the sun.
White Rock is a beautiful waterfront community in the Greater Vancouver Area. After the tide goes out it's a beachcomber's dream. No shortage of shells here for collectors, but if you're seeking pristine samples of shells for your collection that are unmarked and without broken edges, you may have a tough time of it. It's the less-perfect ones that are more beautiful anyhow, right?
P.S. An international thanks to Gerald for adding me on as a Vancouver rep in the guide to daily photoblogs around the world.
