It was so nice to come home from Hawaii to some gorgeous summer weather in Vancouver. Still unwinding from our trip, we hadn’t planned anything on Saturday so we decided it would be the perfect day to explore somewhere we hadn’t been since we were little. My husband and I were both born and grew up in greater Vancouver and as a result know the area like the back of our hands, but one place we hadn’t been in a really long time was Deep Cove. It’s located on the north shore surrounded by gorgeous mountains and sits on the edge of Burrard Inlet; the best part, it’s only a short 20 minute drive from downtown. It’s a quaint little village with adorable eateries, cute boutiques and wonderful trails. We ate at the cutest spot called Honey Doughnuts and Goodies which made the most delicious sandwiches and then grabbed some gelato and explored the cove, marina and some of the trails. If you’re ever in Vancouver I would highly recommend you check it out, you’ll see why Vancouver is famous for its stunning scenery!
