This past weekend, I returned to Bowen Island to hike Mount Gardner, the highest point on the island. I love visiting Bowen Island. It is a 20 minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay but feels a world’s away from the city. 


I climbed to the top of Mount Gardner a few years ago during the summer, but had yet to do it in the winter. I was excited to see what adventures may ensue. I will let the pictures do the talking. Be sure to check out the gallery above and pictures with captions below. 


For more information about the Mount Gardner trail visit Vancouver Trails. It is approximately 17 km roundtrip including the walk to the trailhead from the ferry. 

Once you return to the ferry terminal, if you have some time to spare before the ferry leaves grab a bite to eat at one of the restaurants or cafes on the main road. I have been to and enjoy: Shika, The Snug Cafe, and The Ruddy Potato Whole Foods Market.

  • While I love life on the west coast, it's never easy living on the other side of the country from many friends and family. Grateful for trips home, no matter how long or short (this weekend!) they may be. Back to YVR ✈️
  • Soaking up that Toronto sunshine ☀️
  • Had some of the best vegan food ever at @plantatoronto tonight! I've often been left disappointed (and hungry 😅) by new plant based eateries but this totally exceeded expectations. Loved all the dishes we tried from the cheesy queso dip (pictured here) to the peanut butter chocolate "terrarium" for dessert.
  • Springtime in Victoria #flashbackfriday meanwhile in Toronto... ❄️🌧☀️
  • Last night's surprisingly purple sunset, a welcome sight after a day of rain #tbt
  • From west coast to east coast (sort of! 😛) Toronto bound ✈️ where there is apparently a rainfall warning #cantescapeit
  • The ferry is fun, but these views can't be beat. YYJ ➡️ YVR ✈️
  • Thanks Victoria for the sunshine, great eats, good coffee, and those Island views. Now to the float plane!
