Third Beach, Vancouver, B.C.

I swam from Third Beach after a great walk through old growth forest in Stanley Park. The day was really warm, and quite a few people were in the water. Lots of the swimmers seemed to have arrived on bikes, having pedalled around the seawall, as the bike racks were full.

The sand on this beach was much finer than at Kitsilano, and the water seemed to deepen more quickly.  I had an amazing long swim, sometimes just floating looking at the coast and mountains. The ocean was really clear and clean.

I read on the chalkboard outside the lifeguard station that the ocean temperature was 17ÂșC, which is a degree warmer than it was in Sydney a couple of days ago.
