Fotowide 46: The unofficial beginning of summer

Spanish Banks, Vancouver, BC, Canada

In Canada, the Victoria Day holiday weekend (a.k.a., “May Two-Four”) marks the unofficial beginning of summer. June’s around the corner, warm weather is present (or on its way, c’mon!), and for many, it’s time to think about heading into the woods for some camping. For those of us in Vancouver, it’s beach weather for a picnic, a swim, a paddle, a row, some volleyball, or simply watch people go by, followed by the sunset over the hills and mountains of the Sunshine Coast.

I made the photo above at Spanish Banks in Vancouver, Canada, on 18 July 2013. This post appears on Fotoeins Wide at, and and is a contribution to Travel Photo Thursday.

    It really does seem like summer, but why aren’t there not more people on the beach? Are they all in the water?

    • Along Vancouver’s beaches, the water stays relatively cold and even on the warmest days, I think there are more people on the beach than in the water. Here’s a different example. Maybe it was because of the large number of surfers, but I felt there were more people in the water than on the sand at Sydney’s Bondi Beach. 🙂 Thanks for reading and for your comment and question!
