It’s been raining non-stop for months here in Vancouver. Okay, I may be exaggerating. But only slightly. Because we’re situated right up against the coastal mountains, right next to the ocean, rain is just a fact of life here. But even the hardiest Vancouverite eventually reaches the end of their rain-soaked rope.
Last week if you’d told me we’d see sunshine all long weekend (it’s Family Day here in British Columbia), I wouldn’t have believed you. It really felt like there was no end in sight. But here we are, on sunny holiday Monday, looking back at a wonderful walk we took yesterday with my sister and her fiance in the beautiful sunshine with winter blue skies.
Located about an hour from downtown Vancouver, Pitt Wildlife Loop feels about as far as you can get away from civilization. I’ve been told that during the Summer months this park can be heaving with people but thankfully we were there during Winter so the crowds weren’t bad at all. In fact, there were parts of our 2 hour walk where we wouldn’t see another person for 20 minutes at a time. Home to various animals (birds, beavers, deer and bear), Pitt Wildlife Loop is a treat to visit.
