PEOPLE LOVE TO LAZE on sandy beaches when the rays are warm and the weather is refreshingly breezy. Jericho Beach in Vancouver's West End is a hub for water sports and relaxation. It is easy to see why people gravitate to the tan colored shore by the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club.
Beyond the eye-catching pattern of the umbrella, it is also clear that the popular spot overlooking Burrard Inlet and English Bay attracts part-time sailors seeking safe harbor for their vessels.
I did not sail or sit in the sun when I went there recently. But I did listen to the distant laughter of carefree children and the gentle clanging of sailboat paraphernalia hitting multiple mast poles in the sea breeze. The unusual symphony was as melodic as windchimes and continues to play in my mind.
