And another one

I couldn't just do a post about David, so here's one featuring Elisabeth.

Tsawassen's Centennial Beach is one of our favorites.It's right across the bay from our usual beach (Crescent Beach in Surrey), but it's like visiting a different land. When the tide goes out, you can walk on the beach for miles and miles. Even once you get to the water, you can walk for ages without the water going above your knees. This means that even in our cool springs and winters, the water is warm.  

 It's also very wild. Aside from the birds (eagles, cranes, geese, ducks...) and crabs there are pools ripe for exploring.

 The sweeping vistas are beautiful - and completely different from what you see from Surrey, even though you're looking at a the same places.

 I didn't take any pictures of it this time, but there's wild grasses, drift wood, wildflowers and sand (in case you can't tell that the beach is more mud and clay than sand).

 Plus there are fire pits, a HUGE playground, the cleanest beach bathrooms I've ever seen and an amazing concession (think clam chowder, not fish and chips).

 Now that I've blogged about it, I really can't understand why we don't visit more often...
