We set on again, with the destination of Third Beach. It was pretty smooth sailing, until Coralie slipped off the cycle path ledge and fell off her bike. She got pretty banged up, and has a couple of battle wounds to brag to her friends about, but thanks to a kind passerby, she got a few bandages on the more serious scrapes. Then, she got right back on her bike and rode the rest of the way with little complaint, knowing that she had little choice but to grin and bare it, being we were so far from home.
Finally, we reached out the beach and everyone got a chance to cool off in the water and play in the sand. We really are quite lucky to have access to all these beautiful beaches here in Vancouver. It's a nice reminder that no matter how much we want to travel to new places and experience different cultures, this is still a pretty awesome place to live. And so ends a busy weekend, and another successful ride with a great group of people.
