Kitsilano Beach aka Kits


Kits Beach is a pretty fun place to hang out. Lots of cool little cafes and restaurants and a nice big grass area to just chill in the sun. The swimming pool is pretty sweet to....the longest in Canada or something. I didn't really rate the actual beach itself for swimming, I guess we're a bit spoilt in NZ. Vancouver has more beautiful lakes and rivers to boast about!

hmmm...ok now am I dreaming?...cos this is awesome!


One night my Uncle was up the tree getting a bunch of Cherry's and a sneaky sneaky raccoon decided he wanted in on the action....it's not the best pic but you can you see him climbing the ladder lol!

So my Uncle is super into his Veggie and Fruit garden which he has going on. It's totally amazing and while we were there we ate beautiful lettuce, peas, peppers, beets...all organic and fresh from his garden. In the morning we went up and ate off the cherry tree till we were full! DELICIOUS!!!

West Lake

Our first day in Powell River we went to West Lake, it's really pretty....I feel like a stuck record always saying everywhere we go is really pretty but seriously British Columbia is just so beautiful that everywhere is gorgeous. The hike/walk in to the lake is about 20 minutes, on the way we munched on wild raspberrys, huckle berrys and blackberrys that we found growing in the forest...

Sargents Bay

We took a drive to Sargents Bay today, it's a pretty cool beach. You'll notice all the drift wood in the below pic, I thought it was kinda unique....this is all brought in off Georgia Straight.

Neo and I decided it would be a good idea to do a little rock climbing. I ended up with bruised knees and scraped elbows...some locals asked us if we were trying to kill ourselves....I guess we were climbing it wrong....it got a little hairy in a couple spots...I was happy to see the ground anyways.

The veiw was better from the top of the rock, so the bruised knees were worth it.
