Today was a beautiful day in Vancouver. I wasn’t brave enough to run on these heels but I did do lots of biking!
I awoke at Meggles’ home as often happens on a Saturday. I ate some leftover pasta for first breakfast and then biked home. I assembled a few things and then rode the ~20 km out to deep cove. I had a lovely second breakfast, “the coveman” (eggs, bacon, potatoes and toast, yum), down by the water and then sat in the sun reading a book for about an hour. I napped on a park bench somewhere in there too.
I threw on my hiking boots and plodded along the tail end of the Baden Powell Trail out to Jeff Rock. I discovered that someone has set two sport climbs at the cliffs. I clambered around to the bottom to assess them. I think they would require several warm sunny days to be climbable: lots of sludgy lichen.
On my bike ride back home I stopped in at a lovely shop I had spotted (closed) during my morning ride. It was now open. It was delightfully named the “Garden of Eatin'”. The kind proprietor shared blueberries, peas, and apricots with me. I bought a strawberry-rhubarb pie and strapped it to the back of my bicycle.
