Summers are so short in this part of the world that we almost never go away in July or August. This year was an exception. We had a wedding to attend in Squamish, and we decided to spend an additional 10 days in Squamish, Whistler and Vancouver.
On the way back home, we stopped in New Westminster for a walk on the quay with some friends. If you visit Vancouver, it's worthwhile taking a few days to explore some of the outlying communities like Richmond, White Rock, North Vancouver or New Westminster. I love New West's River Market. It was recently renovated and now has a great gelateria, a lovely tea shop, a Mexican bakery and lots of other good shops and cafes.
