|Shannon Falls, Squamish BC|
the pacific ocean from our car was simply stunning.
Our first stop was at Porteau Cove Marine park. We had already driven for about an hour so we were half way towards Whistler mountains. We found ourselves a nice picnic table and had our lunch. We were joined here by my dear SIL and her family. The kids were very happy to see their cousin.

Our next stop was at Shannon Falls. This is what I liked the best. I loved the sound of the flowing river and the feel of the hard rocks and cold water under my bare feet. I wanted to go high up the rocky river path, but N thought it was not a good idea. He had probably imagined all the hazards of walking across a river and wanted to prevent me from those imaginary hazards. Talk about lack of adventure. I dared him to step inside the water with me. He reluctantly obliged. I enjoyed myself for whatever little time that I was in the water. I will definitely be going up there again and when I do, I will explore the falls to my hearts content. Since this was just a stop over en route to Whistler mountains, we had to leave. I've heard a lot about the beauty of the Whistler Mountains and had to see it.
