Lighthouse Park

Scattered Squirrel: Lighthouse Park

November 27, 2012

Lighthouse Park

This weekend Travis really wanted to get out and do something just for fun.  No errands, no rushing around, just get out and have some nice relaxing fun with the boys.  


Our destination was Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver.  It's a beautiful park!  It was so relaxing walking through the trees.  We didn't make it to the lighthouse, because someone (me) chose the wrong path to take.  :-(  But we're planning on going back, leaving earlier and spending a good few hours wandering around.   One of the plus sides to this park, is that we didn't have to pay to park, which, so far, seems like a rare treat in the Lower Mainland!

Here's some of the pictures I took while we were there.


Liam was having fun leading the way!


The trees were so tall, it felt like a whole different world.


We got there late in the afternoon, and the sun was sinking low in the sky.  It looked so beautiful as it peeked through the trees.


Ferns, moss, mushrooms and more were there in abundance.


Our teen contemplating climbing up.


We made it out to Juniper Point.  The bark on many of the trees had been worn away from the wind.


My boys, checking out the horizon.


The sun was getting ready to set.  It was such a beautiful scene.


One of my favourite pictures of the day.  

It was a great way to spend a few hours on a Sunday afternoon.  It's nice to get away from it all for a little while, and just enjoy doing something together as a family.  If you're in the area and looking for an easy hike and some fantastic views I strongly suggest checking out Lighthouse Park.

Do you ever go on mini escapes to local parks?  Do you have a favourite family spot?

Hi Mom! It was a nice relaxing hour or two. It was beautiful, the path we took was a little strenuous, lots of ups and downs, but it was still fun. We're hoping to go back again and take a different route the next time, maybe even get to the lighthouse, lol. And parking was free, which was a total bonus lol
Love to guys too!
Alli
