I love the area I live in and creating fun, memorable events for myself and others.

Deep Cove Quarry Rock Adventure

Just 20 minutes from downtown Vancouver is Deep Cove, a beautiful waterfront community and the jewel of the North Shore. "The Cove" has a genuine small town feel and is a great place to spend the day, go for a walk, see a play or go for a meal. Recreational activities including hiking and kayaking define this quaint community. You will get the full Deep Cove experience when you join me on this tour which includes hotel pick up and drop off, a visit to Honey's doughnuts, doing the Quarry Rock hike and strolling the 2 block long main street. We might even be able to fit in a visit to the Deep Cove Brewery

Honey's Doughnuts

Located on Gallant avenue Honey's is the quintessential Deep Cove experience offering home cooked and freshly prepared wholesome food. While the signature doughnuts simply can't be beat, don't overlook their sandwiches, muffins and other tasty treats. For a meal or just a snack a trip to the Cove isn't complete without stopping at Honey's. 

The Quarry Rock hike

Quarry Rock (also known as Grey Rock in some hiking books) is an easy hiking trail which is also part of the easternmost section of the Baden Powell Trail. The Rock overlooks Deep Cove while also offering views of SFU and Indian Arm.

The terrain is typical of North Shore hikes; densely wooded areas of Douglas Fir and Hemlock trees, small creeks from mountain runoff, and the smell of fresh forest air. There are numerous wooden bridges and flights of stairs The change in elevation from bottom to top is about a hundred metres (110 yards).

While one could sit for hours soaking up the views and, weather permitting, the sun, we'll stop for about 15 minutes before heading back to Deep Cove. This easy hike takes about 90 minutes return and is dog friendly. 

Strolling Gallant Ave

Gallant Avenue is as small town as it gets. Only 2 blocks long, it's packed with restaurants, quaint boutiques, ice cream parlours, a live theatre and an art gallery. You'll have about an hour here to explore or dine. The Arms Reach restaurant over looks the ocean and is fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere.
