West Coast Autumnal

West Coast Autumnal

Moving to Vancouver has been a big change with many adjustments, but one of my favourite things has been having some lovely opportunities to get around the city and out into the mountains during Autumn, my favourite season.

During the initial settling in period, we camped around various remote spots north of Whistler. Our favourite was definitely the hot springs of Sloquet, and even though we got rained out, I loved making friends with other wanderers and taking an evening dip by candlelight. I even found some joy in the challenge of putting up and taking down a tent in the rain and trying to cook with a headlamp in a race against the light.

We also met up with some old friends and made some new ones on a day hike around Lake Garibaldi. We were very lucky with the weather and got some majestic views of the lake and surrounding mountains. We had some great life chats and ate our body weight in carbs back in Whistler afterwards!

We took a lovely bike ride around the seawall in Vancouver, taking in the beaches and mountains.
