Mini Trip continue this weekend with a short trip to the nearby Ambleside Park in West Vancouver.
The beach is just across from the Lions Gate Bridge and taking the 250 Horseshoe Bay or 250A Dundarave and then getting off around the 13th Avenue directly here.
I came across a fishing pier, where people actually had fishing rods going straight into the sea.
The bridge towards the pier…
Back on the shore ..
The beach is more like a pebble beach so it isn’t very comfortable to walk on. It was also low tide so the seaweed or algae were all washed up against the sands.
The beach also has a gorgeous totem pole looking over at the waters.
The totem pole overlooks these gorgeous waters …
Tucked inside is a small pond. It is behind the trees and bushes and if it wasn’t for some individuals already inside there talking, I would have missed it ..
Back to the shores ~
The seawalk from Ambleside it quite long and it goes all the way to the parking lot of Park Royal.
So after going back to Park Royal Mall, I took a bus back to Ambleside, I figured out that the best way to explore here would be to take the bus all the way to Dundarave and walk down the seawalk.
The Ambleside community … I was at the western side of the community and there aren’t as many cafe as in the eastern area, closer to Park Royal.
I went back down to the shoreline and found another seawalk that is way more gorgeous than the one at Ambleside. Actually, the seawalk is all connected but this time, I was going towards the west as oppose to the east. From afar, I can see the lighthouse at the Lighthouse Park.
The only thing I didn’t like was the lack of shade on the seawalk, definitely need to wear sunscreen, and bring water and a cap, on a sunny day.
I’ve never seen this before, but dogs and people cannot walk on the same path …
There are some sea life art works on the rocks along the seawalk …
I found myself at the Cafe Crema on Bellevue Ave, at the end of this walk, hungry and slightly dehydrated.
That was another mini half day trip
