Another great reason to walk the seawall track round Stanley Park. Stopped for a little while. Dipped my feet in the water (cold) and sat and watched people enjoying themselves.

We came across Third Beach as we walked around the seawall at Stanley Park. It is smaller than the other two beaches and was very busy the Saturday afternoon we visited. Lots of bikes and we thought the sea wasn't all that clean. Interesting stone...More

Stanley Park
Stanley Park is Vancouver's premier spot to get up
close and personal with nature and animals. The grassy
expanse offers outdoor teahouses and stunning views,
beachfront hideaways and splash parks. It is a typical
getaway spot for friends and families, especially as
it is home to Vancouver's aquarium, and some of its
best equestrian outlets.
