When I lived in Vancouver I used to ride my bike along the sea wall almost everyday in the summer until my bike got stolen:( I was so excited when I found out that The Burrard hotel offers free all day bike rentals because Andrew and I got to ride cruiser bikes around the 10 km sea wall. I remember trying to run the sea wall a few years ago and almost died. I remember not being able to walk for a few days after that because all of my muscles were so sore. I would recommend renting a bike instead of trying to run the sea wall because it is quite the trek.
After we rode bikes around the sea wall we decided to head back to The Burrard and lounge in the coffee shop while listening to vintage records. I am really considering buying a record player so I can start collecting vintage records.
I love this Dina Goldstein photo in the lobby of The Burrard
