When was the last time you jumped into a puddle? Clearly our 'Wet Coast' rains have arrived. As Vancouverites, we can choose to stay inside or we can embrace the inevitable and enthusiastically pull on our boots and seek out those puddles.
The Seaside Greenway, from Spanish Banks to Locarno Beach is a tremendous place to walk and an even better place to puddle jump. Located near prestigious Point Grey, the University of British Columbia and Pacific Spirit Park, Spanish Banks is composed of 3 different sections. And yes, the parking is free! At low tide you can almost reach out and touch a tanker or 2.
During the winter months there is a certain freshness to the beach. There are no crowds and there is a sense of calm in the air.
If you are looking to extend your walk, the 28 km Seaside Greenway runs from Spanish Banks to the Stanley Park Seawall. No, there are no shortages of puddle to jump through in this wonderful area. Slip on those boots and have fun!!
