It was a beautiful day for a walk on Saturday so we loaded up the Protege and headed for one of my all-time favorite spots in the Lower Mainland - Crescent Beach. It's is a quaint little village-type area of Surrey (I know...never thought you'd hear "quaint" and Surrey in the same sentence). Unlike many areas around Vancouver, Crescent Beach has maintained a lot of the charm of its origin as a summer cottage destination. It also has one of the most fantastic beachside walks around.
We weren't the only ones out enjoying the lack of rain (for once!). We saw some crazy people being baptized in the muddy waters of the aptly named, Mud Bay (calling them crazy is a comment on the frigid waters, not their religious views!) There were tonnes of birders out (don't think they appreciated Abner's bird calls though) and a doggy obedience class. One nice woman even offered to take a family photo for us!
We walked from the village out to Blackie Spit along the waterfront, but opted to go back through the village so that I could do one of my favorite things - gawk a beautiful houses. TDSH and I agree, if we had work-at-home jobs and a whole bunch of money we would love to live in Crescent Beach. Sadly we lack both so we're stuck in our two-bedroom apartment in BBY.
I really enjoy getting out for walks whenever possible so if you know of any good ones in and around the Lower Mainland, please leave a comment. I leave you now with this super-cute shot of Abner. How adorable!
