"English Bay, Vancouver: There are numerous fine bathing beaches around Vancouver, the most easily reached of which are English Bay and Kitsilano, both on street-car lines. The scene at English Bay, which lies at one entrance to Stanley Park, on a sunny afternoon, is one of great animation. Burrard Inlet, English Bay and the North Arm are excellent places also for boating. Vancouver boasts of one of the finest yacht clubs on the Pacific coast."
