Felix, There's a nice park on the Capilano River, just up from Marine Drive. It's great for a bit of hiking or a picnic.

Another great place is the swinging bridge on Mount Seymour - great for a touch of Heaven and video footage.

Both are free to visit.

On the way to Whisler, there's another great park which has one of the highest waterfalls in North America. Amazing.

Then again, there's alot to be said for relaxing on a beach while drinking a cold beer and sampling a smorgasbord of Vancouvers finest, uh.... herbal delights, if that's you game. :)

Shannon Falls rule. There's a nice little campground that's free to stay at just slightly up the road from there.

Ended up getting 50 x 60min Fuji tapes from the tape house in burnaby. In case anyone is interested their service was first rate. It was also the cheapest I found.

The tape house in Burnaby? Where in Burnaby? How much? 50 tapes? You're going to wear out your new GL2! And you haven't even got it yet! I have a desk full of Fuji. I got to go to Leo's and get some Ilford Delta 400. It seems everywhere is dry, except for Leo's. Go figure.

The Tape House. www.thetapehouse.com
it's on 7820 Venture Street in BBY. I got 50, becuase i throw finished projects onto tape to save space. Just got my GL2 about an hour ago. Charging batteries right now... Can't wait....

The tape house is the best place to buy Mini dv tapes. It has all tape formats, tape sleeves, cases, labels. It winds it own tape. So when you want a specific lenght they make it for you. Its not to far from the Global stations.
