Jericho to Kitsilano… Lots to do on a sunny day… motor boat, fly kites, or bike!

May 9th… finally the weather is warming up.
Saturday was a beautiful day, so we went biking from Kitsilano to Spanish Banks.  We saw a convoy of motor-yachts stretching from Kits Point to the Vancouver Yacht Club.  A very strange site!  We quickly discovered it was the opening day for the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club so the exercise for the day was a “sail past” with everybody dressed in their navy blue blazers and white pants to salute the commodore.

The tide is really really low, and the sand Spanish Banks sand flats are revealed. Lots of people went walking on the sand… to boogie board, bicycle, wind-surf or just to explore.
