Georgia Strait, BC - David Wilburn
My name is David and over the past 40 years, this coastal spot in West Vancouver has been where I have gone to swim and experience the extraordinary. The extraordinary being that I am swimming close to a major metropolitan centre (I can see Vancouver as I swim) and yet, at the same, I can look in the other direction and there is the relative wild of Lighthouse Park and the expanse of the Georgia Straight. I can't measure the value of this experience that takes place for me within an hour of arriving home from work. This never ceases to amaze me!
We are so fortunate in Vancouver to live right on a beautiful stretch of ocean and to swim and be part of it's natural beauty. It is important that this is the type of experience is available to future generations. May we preserve the health of this stretch of ocean and along it's shorelines.
