When it comes to Vancouver weather, if it is hot and sunny outside and you get inspired to do an outdoor activity, you should probably do it the exact moment you think of it, because if you wait a week, it will rain cats and dogs and you will be forced to cancel your adventure and/or, move it inside.
This is exactly what happened to us.
Hot sunny weather inspired me to plan a picnic on the beach, but in typical Vancouver fashion, I waited a week and it rained like a mother on the day of the event. Story of our lives.
So, plan B was but in place and we packed up all our Italian goodies and headed over to Dario & Ginas for an indoor, sit down, picnic.

There is nothing like going to Bosa, picking up the best of the best and just nibbling on it all night long. This is my favorite way to enjoy Italian treats.
Dario just got back from a trip to Italy and bought Gina the most adorable watermelon serving dish, so naturally we had watermelon. Plus, it’s a picnic staple.

Ever since I was a kid, my Nonna taught me to eat Watermelon with a piece of bread. I figured this was something all Italians did, except no one at the table had ever heard of such a thing. None the less, it is amazing and I suggest you try it. Only stipulation, it’s gotta be white bread. It will make your watermelon taste oh so sweet!
When they aren’t going through their cell phones playing annoying ring tones they are stacking beer cans as high as they can. Boys.
Would the evening have been better if we were enjoying amazing food and fabulous company while sitting on the warm sand enjoying the sounds of the waves? Probably, but it’s not like this was such a bad deal either. With so many evening being taken up by the renos, we really need to jump at the opportunity of warm sunny weather. Tomorrow we will be enjoying our first Horse Race of the season, and the weather looks like it’s going to be perfect, so we are pretty excited! There is nothing like a beautiful day in Vancouver.
