All the things she gets to do: hiking

So I finally got to do a proper hike! And by ‘proper hike’ I mean I wore my proper socks and proper shoes and it was a proper trail. Two tips for you: dont go on a big hike just after you have eaten fish and chips and make sure you remember to bring water with you. I’ll take those tips on board for next time! haha. I was unprepared!

Sophie was kind enough to show me this hiking trail, and it didnt disappoint!! The day was sunny and lovely, with just a little breeze (probably around 18 degrees celcius).

This was the start of the hike (after we’d walked up a huge hill) and I had no idea what to expect. Soph told me that there was an incredible view at the end, and that kept me going.

There were lot of people out – Vancouverites seem to make the most of the sun because they know it is often rare – and we were overtaken by many fit men and ladies! Most of them said hi, which was nice!

I wont lie to you, it was tough! There were some real steep hills and rugged rocky bits and all the ups and downs wore me out. I dont know if it had anything to do with eating right before (quite possibly). It was a beautiful walk.

And then, when my head was pounding and my feet were sore and my tummy was doing weird things Soph turned to me, smiled and then strode ahead. I grabbed my camera out as I knew that look meant we had arrived.

I turned the corner and BAM!

The sun was shining and everyone was sitting on the rocks to watch the view.

It was one of those moments I’ll always remember.


WE DID IT!!!


And so we sat and talked and watched the world go by for what seemed like hours. Deep Cove is amazing, and so are great friends!!
