Quarry Rock Hike
We were up at 08:00 and had bagels for breakfast.
We left the house around 10:15 and walked to the train station. We caught a train to the city to then catch a bus.
We got on the bus which took us all the way to Deep Cove, about 45 minutes from downtown Vancouver.
We got off the bus and just started walking. We walked for a bit and then noticed a sign saying we had gone the wrong way and had to turn back and walk all the way back to where we had come from! Luckily, other people had done the same so we weren’t all alone. We also got to see some really nice houses here, so not all was lost.
Once we returned to the right place, we began the walk up to Quarry Rock.
The trail up to the rock was 1.2km with the majority of it being on stairs but through some gorgeous woodland and higher up and up the mountain.
It took us about 30-45 minutes to get to the top, dodging people and crossing rivers (on bridges).
Once we got to the top, we had a stunning view! The weather wasn’t great, so there was no sun, but it was still nice to sit down and admire.
We walked back down the trail as we were very hungry and thirsty!
Lunch & Doughnuts
We were recommended a cafe called Cafe Orso so we went in, grabbed a table and each got a coffee.
Along with the coffee, we got half a tuna melt each with a tomato bisque, which was great!
We left after our lunch, incredibly full, and went for a bit of a walk and sit down by the beach.
We then went to Honey Doughnuts to see what all the fuss was about. This place was recommended to us by more than one person and the queue was out the door, so we had thought it would mean it was amazing!
We weren’t amazed by the doughnuts, they were just OK. Kim had a chocolate glazed and Curtis had a cinnamon sugar.
We left here and had a bit of a sit down whilst we ate.
We then left and caught the bus back, which took about 50 minutes.
We stopped off at the liquor store and bought some cans of Jameson, Giner & Lime to try.
We got a lot of admin done in the evening, as well as going for an evening walk.
We weren’t hungry after our lunch so Kim had a salad and Curtis had some toast.
We watched some TV and went to bed. We were exhausted!
