This monastery lies on the way to the Steveston Fisherman Wharf , or, to be more precise, the Market is located behind the Temple, — let’s pay tribute to the sanctuary.
I probably will not sound a cool and tough fella at all if I say that I just love to do cross-country skis. It may look especially silly here in Vancouver, which is famous for its mountain-skiing bases.

Definitely, you won’t call this one a sport. It’s just an activity, but a good one, and kids seem to really enjoy it. Where can one snow tube in Vancouver? It’s on mountains Cypress and/or Seymour.
