Scarborough Bluffs

This week’s Sunday Funday adventure includes Lucas and I finally visiting Scarborough Bluffs. To be completely honest with you, this wasn’t really our first choice plan… we originally wanted to visit a lavender farm but WHO KNEW (probably everybody except us) that lavender farms are only in the summer?! #WTF #WhyIsItNotBasedOnMYSchedule. Thankfully we realized this the night before as opposed to driving 1 or 2 hours (depending on which farm we had decided to visit) and then realizing it was all for nothing. Anywho, we ended up spending the day with Lucas’s family and then visiting the Bluffs later on.

After doing a bit of research, I realized that you could get to the Bluffs by either hiking there or driving directly there. Being the Vancouverite I am, you would expect me to choose the hiking route. And you are not wrong… usually I would probably do that. BUT NOT TODAY MY FRIEND. I don’t know about you, but lately it’s been HOT AS F***************. Here I am getting ready for fall, planning to go to the mall for some fall clothes and you hit me with a heat warning?! #RUKiddingMe. Anyway, since it was 30+ degrees out, I ain’t down for the hike. We drove directly to the viewpoint to look around and take pictures.

So here’s the thing about the Bluffs. If you’ve gone you probably know this already. First of all, the picturesque parts of the Bluffs looks amazing to walk on but in reality, when you start to walk on it, it begins to feel more like walking the plank than anything else. If you have acrophobia like me, attempting to walk on whatever you call that thing is a real leg weakener. In fact, Lucas didn’t even bother walking on it. Don’t tell him I told you but he’s more scared of heights than people are scared of spiders. One time I took him on the Capilano Suspension Bridge (in Vancouver) and the poor guy was holding on for his dear life the entire time. #DKM #IHadABlastWatchingHim

someone tell Lucas this is a nice photo and he needs to post on instagram more

Anywho, there’s two viewpoints I would say. One viewpoint is a little more obvious and another one is sort of out of the way. The first one looks like this:

 

 

And the second one looks like this:

I’m telling you, this one was a struggle to get to!!

I had to sit down after my knees got so weak from walking this thing LOL MY ACRO IS SOO BAD

Just a disclaimer, to get to the second one you have to go down this really steep path first but it’s pretty worth it IMO! 🙂

 

While I was up there I got to see a bunch of people in the beach area on their yachts or their jet skis which gave me SO MUCH FOMO and reminded me of the last time I went jet skiing. If I ever win the lottery I’m definitely buying a private yacht. Or jet. and definitely jet skis.

do you see the jet skis in the back? 😥 #fomo

 

Anyway, hope you guys had a great weekend and didn’t burn to death with the weather lately!!

Love,
Lisa
