I was at the beach. There was fire. There were stars. Music was played and and songs were sung.
Life is good.
Off the edge of UBC there's a gem of a spot down a long and steep staircase, about 500 meters north from the Wreck Beach trail head. It leads to a sandy shoreline where waves crash gently aganist stones that lie twenty paces out from under thick, overhanging forest and at the edge of the sand.
There are many wonderful places to see in Vancouver; this is definately one of the best.
