From facebook today:
3 hours ago: It’s sunny! Beach time! :D
About an hour ago: Finally I’m seeing some naked men
54 minutes ago: Rec beach?
I happen to know that Vancouver’s nude beach is Wreck Beach. Dozens clearly think its -reational beach. The hit offered here also confuses the name of Grouse Mountain.
I would say Stanley Park, Chinatown, Gastown, Robson St., English Bay, Rec Beach is a must!
If you can go to Whistler, it’s a great drive up, about 1.5hrs from Van. Also Grosse Mountain has a nice view of Vancouver, Do the Grosse Grind up!
Response: stanley park, gastown, chinatown, downtown, forget rec beach unless you want to see naked old people (go to a strip club instead) lol.
I should have thought of this back then, but it only occurred to me today upon seeing a photo of a tidal deposit of wrack.
“The Rec” was what we called the park, with swings and slides usually in a sorry state of disrepair:
And there are Youtube videos of people “messing around down the wreck”
