Last Lazy Days of Summer
Sometimes being a tourist in your own city can be very rewarding. Of course it helps if you live in a beautiful city to begin with.
Remember; people travel or used to from all over the world just to be exactly in a place that we tend to take for granted.
On Sunday I was on my way to Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver but remembered along the drive that there is a Farmers’ Market in Ambleside Park, at the foot of 13th Street.
It’s on every Sunday from 10am to 3pm, May through October. Since it was a gorgeous day we stopped there first. I love this market. They have such a wide assortment of organic foods and a nice varied selection of B.C. crafts including jewelry, clothing, wrought iron, garden sculptures, soaps, pottery and much, much more.

I must say the market and the whole Ambleside area in general is very dog friendly. I ended up playing ball with Layla off-leash in a sprawling huge park area across from the beach and we hung out on a blanket for quite some time. That was after having lunch at The Boat Shed. And before we listened to live music on the beach and then walked all along the boardwalk.

Pavel, our waiter was excellent. He recommended an awesome homemade Mexican cilantro hot sauce to compliment my meal. I took it home.

Oh; we never did make it to the Lighthouse.
