Kitsilano Vikings

795

MuninOn one of our first bike trips along the seawall, we noticed a very odd looking vessel on the water. What was a viking ship doing in English Bay? A quick google search revealed that what we saw was the Munin, a half-size replica of the famous Gokstad ship.

I only found out recently that the Munin is moored at Heritage Harbour, just in front of the Maritime Museum in Vanier Park. And what’s more, you can actually sail on it.

Sailings are typically at 10am and 1pm on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the summer. A minimum of 7 people are required per sailing, and both individuals and small groups can register by emailing bookings@munin.ca or calling Waldemar Jonsson (604.435.0296). Trips are by donation.

    Newborn twins will do that to your schedule.

    Well, newborn twin means NO trips along the seawall this year (yet) 🙂

    What I meant to say was our first bike ride along the seawall EVER (i.e. summer of 2005).
