The rain held off long enough so that I could sneak in a couple of cache grabs before night fall. Plus I managed to do the legwork on a third cache.
On the Social Rec Centre Grounds there is a Bocce and Croquet lawn enclosed in a white picket fence; a bit of European civility in the heart of Coquitlam.
The seats are all set up, just waiting for the fair weather to start and the bowlers to come back.
After finding this cache I stopped on the west flank of Capitol Hill to enjoy the view of Vancouver, Second Narrows Bridge, the North Shore Mountains, and well,..... pretty well all of Vancouver can be seen from here.Second Narrows Bridge, as us old Vancouverites call it, is pictured here. It's real name is The Ironworkers Memorial Bridge. It is named after the 27 iron workers who lost their lives during construction of the bridge.
Burrard Inlet with Stanley Park in the background.
Well, that's about all I had time for on this night; the rain was just coming in and the light was fading. A quick drive by of the final cache location as a recon to next time out, and then off home for a late supper.
