The weather guessers had predicted a rainy day so when we found the day to be mix of sun and haze, we decided to drive to Crescent Beach and have a walk and picnic. We love picnics and are quick at slapping together some veggies, crackers and cheese and vino. But first we must get some steps in, after all we are under the thumb of Shelagh's fitbit!
Along the beach front a path takes you from the public parking lot to the centre of the village. The path is shared with bicyclists. Ultimately it ends just beyond the village where those seeking privacy have the opportunity to be away from it all. The views over Georgia Straight are beautiful and on the other side are a row of gorgeous beach homes. Some are just cottages built a long time ago and some are statements to bottomless bank accounts.
It's one of those back and forth walks, not our favourite but the scenery was well worth it. In the village are a collection of restaurants where prices seem a tad inflated, but the fish and chips looked great! When we returned to the parking area we set up our chairs in the shade of a tree and enjoyed our lunch, keeping a close eye on the rather fearless crows intent on stealing a bite. They are not as skilled as the seagulls at Granville Island who will swoop by and take your lunch right from your hand!

A cool breeze forced us to the sandy beach area where we decided to go next time for a picnic.
