Was this summer? Is it over already? The past weekend Vancouver was blessed with sun and temperatures up to 23 degrees. The first taste of summer which unfortunately already passed, but we used our time wisely I’d say!
On Friday I spent some time on my balcony enjoying the sun and relaxing before going out to a concert at night followed by a great ending at the Roxy with some of you guys. In case you don’t know, the Roxy is a night club on Granville Street that offers amazing live music every day of the week in combination with a DJ playing the best tunes. I really love coming to this place. It’s always a fun night where you can sing your lungs out, dance your butt off and make new friends. They also have a pool table and photo booth, what else could you ask for? – That’s right, affordable drinks! There’s nothing this bar lacks in my opinion. 🙂 We sure had a good time and stayed until the lights came on and the bar was closing. If you haven’t been out in Vancouver yet, I highly recommend you try it and see how different it might be from your home country. Here’s a party guide I’ve put together in case you need some inspiration on where to go: https://internexcanada.wordpress.com/2022/06/03/vancouver-party-guide/
Since we went out Friday night, Saturday started quite late, but not too late to enjoy more rays of sunshine. INTERNeX met at Jericho Beach next to all the cute bunnies (have you seen them yet?) to experience the feeling of a BC summer by the city. Lots of people came out for BBQ’s by the beach, volleyball and swimming, so did we. Ricky was brave enough to dive into the cool Pacific Ocean as a way to escape the heat the sun was forming upon us. After all this activity (;)) we started to feel a little hungry and checked out a rooftop patio restaurant right at the beach with views over downtown and the mountains. They serve food like burgers, fish & chips, tacos and ice cream. The price is not necessarily cheap, but I think it was really worth the experience. The portions were big and the food delicious, plus the view was great! There’s not really any other restaurant around the area that offers anything like this. Strengthened from our break we decided to go back to the beach and hang up our volleyball net for a couple of games during sunset. It was a lot of fun, but some people got quite competitive. 😀 We made new friends who joined our games and in the end just sat down and talked about life with music playing in the background, debating on what to do next. The sun disappeared more and more, it got a little chilly so we decided to leave the beach. A bunch were planning on going out that night, I still have to ask how that went. 😉 I was just happy to go to bed because I could still feel the consequences from the night before. 😀
Let’s hope summer returns soon to Vancouver and we’ll have many more of those amazing beach nights. 🙂
What was your highlight of the weekend? Did you like the sun? Or were you hiding from it?
