I was originally just going to do a single "West Vancouver" post, but I couldn't decide what to leave out, so I've split it into three.
It was a quick late afternoon bus trip across the Lion's Gate Bridge to West Vancouver. I got off at 25th Avenue in the Dundarave neighborhood and walked down to the beach. The beach here is limited to a beautiful little fillet on the west side of the pier (a groin/jetty, actually), swash aligned with the significant fetch from the west across the Strait of Georgia.
There was a small, lower beach against a stepped seawall in the lee of the pier, but it was mainly under the relatively high tide.
