Friday’s outing took us to East Vancouver’s Commercial Drive, a bustling high street with lots of cool shops and restaurants known to locals as “The Drive”.
We started out with lunch at Cafe Deux Soleils, a vegetarian restaurant and Commercial Drive institution.

After our tasty lunch, we strolled along The Drive, window shopping and happily greeting all the neighbourhood dogs who were out with their people for a walk in the sunshine.

Our stroll ended up at Grandview Park, a popular and convenient gathering-place for local families. The park has recently been upgraded with new playground equipment and accessible washroom facilities.

When we finished playing at the park, we headed to a nearby off-leash dog park to play with our friend Max and his people.
It was a wonderful day, and we finally had some sunshine! Back to school and work on Monday… We wish our Spring Break Adventures could go on forever (or at least for a few more weeks).
