Place 72 – Day 904: Vancouver, BC – Kits Beach Long Walk

We woke up and had a nice homemade breakfast sandwich for breakfast. After we ate that, we got ourselves ready and went out for a walk.

We got a bit tired of doing the same walk, so we planned to walk for about an hour to get to Kitsilano and visit the beach there.

We got a coffee once we got to Kitsilano and it was a really good one!

We then walked to what we thought was Kitsilano beach, but we accidentally went about 30 minutes too far and walked to Jericho beach instead! Luckily, this is still a nice place to walk to, but we walked along that beach and up to Kitsilano beach, where we walked around a bit.

We walked down to the dog beach and watched all the dogs run around and then Kim dipped her feet in the water a little before we headed back towards home as we were hungry!

After about an hour of walking, we managed to get back home, legs hurting but McDonald’s in hand which was a bonus! A beautiful day out and a nice, very long, walk.

We ate our dinner and relax for a bit, then headed out to the supermarket followed by Kim having her weekly relaxing bath.

We watched a bit more TV and headed to bed.

Place 72 – Day 211: Vancouver, BC – Long, Long Walk

Kitsilano Beach Walk

We got up and had some breakfast, but got ready for the day fairly quickly.

We left the apartment and had a brilliant 45 minute walk to Kitsilano!

The sun was out, it was still cold but there were no clouds in the sky.

We didn’t expect there to be many people either, but there were actually a lot.

We got to Kitsilano and walked around a bit, just for no reason. It was so nice out that we felt we should.

We did stop and get a coffee and doughnuts at Parallel 49th, though.

We started to walk back after this, with a few stops on the way to pet some dogs and we walked on the beach for a bit, which gave us excellent views!

Guinness & Moscow Mule

We got back home and went for a drink at the pub near our apartment!

We had been out for a good few hours, so felt like we deserved it.

Curtis got a Guinness and Kim got a Moscow Mule.

Risotto

Kim made her famous risotto again and we ate that for dinner. It was truly amazing!

We then watched some TV as well as a film, The Death Of Stalin which we thought was very funny!

We are both working from home tomorrow (and for the foreseeable future), as mentioned previously, so we don’t need to be awake as early!

Place 72 – Day 140: Vancouver, BC – New Years Day Beach Walk

New Years Beach Walk

After Kim spoke with her family in the morning, we went out to Kitsilano for a beach walk!

The weather was excellent (at the time) for a walk, so we did just that.

We drove out to Kitsilano, parked up and walked down to the beach.

We first stopped at the dog beach for Kim to say hi to some dogs, and then continued on to the human beach.

We got terrific views of the snowy mountains in the distance, too.

We walked along the beach for a while and then it started to rain, so we looked for a coffee shop!

We found one, but upon entering, it was too hot and crowded so we went elsewhere.

Once we found a new place, we got our coffees and, they were small, but pretty tasty!

We stopped at a supermarket on the way back to the car, but didn’t buy anything, so we went back to the car and drove home.

Early Dinner

We at dinner at 17:00, which is early for us! We had sweet chilli chicken with rice and vegetables.

We watched a film, which was alright, but it wasn’t the best we have seen. We don’t even remember the name…

We did some housework and got ready for work tomorrow and then watched some TV before sleeping.

Place 72 – Day 43: Vancouver, BC – Kitsilano

Walk To Kits

We woke up and had a pains au chocolat each and some strawberries.

We ate this and then spoke with Kim’s family briefly as they were at Kim’s uncle’s wedding.

We then sat down to speak with Curtis’ family, but missed them so instead we left the house and walked to Kitsilano!

Kitsilano is a very trendy, hippie and beautiful neighbourhood in Vancouver. It took us roughly 45 minutes to walk from our home across to ‘Kits’.

The weather was beautiful, with the sun beating down on us.

The majority of the walk was along the seawall, so we got to see a lot of boats and we even walked through Granville island.

Coffee In Kits

We wanted to grab a coffee so we found a coffee shop called Bean Around The World. We believe this is a chain but it smelled delicious when we walked in and it was pretty well priced as well.

Curtis got a cappucino and Kim got a caramel macchiato. Both of our drinks were delicious!

Looking For Food

We thought we would look around for something to eat, so we went to the main area in Kitsilano to get some lunch.

Unfortunately, we were unable to find anything, so we settled for a wrap and KitKat from Whole Foods instead!

Kitsilano Beach

We walked to the beach which has mountain views and lots of volleyball courts! We sat and ate our lunch and then began the walk home by the side of the beach.

We walked all the way home from there which took about another 45 minutes and we were exhausted!

Shopping

We got back home and relaxed for a bit as our feet hurt.

We then went out to do our shop for the week and didn’t really spend that much!

We came back and Kim made a really good dinner which was marinated pork with noodles and vegetables.

We finished up with dinner and watched the first episode of the new season of Black Mirror, followed by some Lucifer, as well as some ice cream and then whiskey!
