I awoke to yet another sunny day, this time around I was in Canada and all geared up for a day of biking adventure. The neighborhood where I parked was not only high-end, it was also somewhat secluded which meant I wasn't parking right on someone's front doorstep. It's funny, I can't afford any of the homes in this neighborhood but I can effectively "live" there, if just for a little while.

After I ate breakfast I jumped on the mountain bike and toured a portion of waterfront Vancouver. My trek took me through the waterfront area then direct to Stanley Park located on a small penninsula northwest of city center. I rode once around the park then headed back to the public beach to catch the sunset.

Click here if you wish to take the two day world-wind tour of Vancouver. It includes the above bike tour plus a tour of Vancouver's Chinatown.

After finished my ride around Stanley park I locked up the bike and waited for the sun to set over English Bay. Being so close to all the nightlife action, literally a block away, many people were at the beach waiting and watching as well.

After the sun passed well over the horizon, I high-tailed it on foot up Denman Street then over to Nelson Street to check out the area's nightlife action. It was nearing 11pm but it was a Friday night so the streets were filled full of people, things were in full party swing.
