Hubby and I love to get off the beaten path and check out the surrounding countryside. Bowen Island seemed just what we were looking for, and it delivered. We caught a bus from downtown Vancouver to the ferry. The trip over was picturesque. We didn't venture too far from the wharf as everything was close by.
We enjoyed a wonderful long lunch and a couple of coldies (beer) overlooking a gorgeous view. Just the way we like it ;)
