If you don't live on the North Shore, chances are you don't get over to West Vancouver very often. There's that mental block of a bridge, which actually isn't such a big deal once you hop in the car or even on a bus from downtown. And once you arrive at the waterfront near Ambleside Pier, you'll wonder why you don't go more often.
I ventured over for the Best of the West culinary event last night (August 6). Below, find some photos I took as a guest at the event, which brought together 12 North Shore restaurants and 12 B.C. wineries on Ambleside Pier. Let's start with a few of the general festival atmosphere.
