On a daily basis, I awaken to hear the mountains and ocean calling. There is something deep inside me that craves to be outside. I am confident that those closest to me would agree that without my regular dose of Nature, I can be extremely difficult to live with. Often, when time is tight, and I can’t find my way to the back country, I look closer to home, to one of Vancouver’s best seaside attractions – Porteau Cove Provincial Park! Located on North America’s most southerly fjords, Porteau Cove is famous for views of Howe Sound and the surrounding mountains, scuba diving, waterfront campsites, beachcombing, star gazing and Aurora Borealis viewing. All this, and only 38 km north of Vancouver on Highway 99. Unbelievable.
