squamish

№ 12 – Squamish, British Columbia, Canada

While my husband was stuck in Richmond having fun at a conference, I was out with his parents exploring (getting lost in Vancouver was a lot of fun). I think the original plan was to go up to Whistler but all the construction work going on (they were getting ready for the Vancouver Winter Olympics) made the drive too slow for our liking and we only got as far as Squamish before we decided to make our way back to Vancouver.

I read somewhere that there was a nice beach there in Squamish so we drove around trying to find it and somehow ended up at this spot that apparently was a set for some TV show. There were some people doing work on the set but no filming was going on. The TV show was called The Guard and it only lasted two seasons. I’d always meant to watch an episode but never got around to it and the next thing I knew, it was cancelled.

I wish I could show you a 360° view of this spot because it was really quite stunning with a big rocky mountain on one side and a fjord — Howe Sound — with sea green water on the other side (as you can see in the picture). Since I can’t, you just have to take my words for it. :-)
