After the Olympics hockey game this was the scene on the seawall with Stamp's Landing pub in the background.

There were six or seven Americans who had a bet on and when they lost the hockey game they had to jump into the creek.

Fortunately, the day was quite warm but I bet the water was very cold.

Yesterday, I went to Dunderave in West Vancouver. This is the village with lots of cute little shops and the magnolias in bloom down the middle of the street.

I bought some DMC 5 Perle embroidery thread for my crazy quilt purses and then had some tomato and basil soup at the bakery. Then walked down to the pier over the railway tracks.

There was a beautiful bunch of daffodils and a stone sculpture.

To the left is the seawall to Ambleside, the Lions Gate Bridge and Stanley Park.

The short pier where I sat for a while and listened to the waves crashing in. The tide was coming in so the waves were quite large. It was a beautiful warm day.

To the right is the beach, I walked down and did a little beachcombing - one of my favourite things to do. I found some nice little pieces of driftwood for my purses.

Then I noticed a train was coming so ran the short distance up the hill to get a picture....

A little boy had put a penny on the track but unfortunately it had fallen off and so it didn't get flattened. I think everyone loves to watch a train go by.
On the way home I stopped at Michael's and bought some button for my cq's and was going to stop at Lonsdale Quay on the way home for the best fish and chips I have ever tasted but unfortunately it was too late so I had a Starbucks latte and then had to make something when I got home. Had a lovely day and was happy to be out in nature, not much of that in the middle of the city.
