We took a couple of hours walking along the beach, had a drink at the marina/boat club, watched the rabbits, collected a bit of sea glass and a few shells, very pleasant quiet place to spend a couple of hours chilling.

West Point Grey
West Point Grey is one of the city’s oldest
neighbourhoods, especially known for its easygoing and
