Boundary Bay Regional Park
When the sky is blue in Vancouver…..OOOOWEEEEE!!!! You hightail it outside! Boundary Bay Regional Park here I come!!!
After days + days of rain + grey skies, one morning I awoke to sun + an azure sky!!! When these special rare days come along, you HAVE TO SEIZE THE DAY!!!!! “AAAACK!!!!” I screamed, rapidly packed a lunch + literally ran out the door to head towards Boundary Bay Regional Park!
It took me about 35 minutes to drive south into Tsawwassen, which is close to the U.S. border. Not a bad drive if I do say so myself!
This structure looks very new to me. But more importantly, there are clean bathrooms – always a plus because I always drink too much water. TMI!!!! The Centennial Beach Cafe is at the end of the structure with a patio area looking out towards the water. I’m going to have to give it a try another day!
I had the foresight to wear my rubber boots to Boundary Bay even though it was a sunny day. People were looking at me weird in the parking lot but I don’t care! Wellllllll, I’m glad that I did, because I wandered out into the bay into the thick clay-like, mucky sand! And that’s where all the action was!
What was really interesting to watch were the seagulls that would search for clams in the mud. Once they had one in their beaks, they would fly up, release the clam to let it drop down + split open. NUM NUMS!!!
I saw a speck of white out yonder + *GASP* I zoomed my camera lens to find a bald eagle!
Mount Baker is situated in Washington state. Oh, America!!! So close, yet so far away!!!!
Boundary Bay is really such a great place to explore for so many reasons! It’s a spot I will go back to often! And the bird watching is AMAZING!!!! The End.
