Vancouverites take their obsession with a beloved stranded barge to the next level by leaving reviews online of their experience.

The barge ran aground at Sunset Beach on November 15 during a storm. Then plans for its removal were made and then pushed back continuously.

With a royal tide set to take place on December 6, the barge could soon be removed via a coordinated effort with the owners, Transport Canada and the Canadian Coast Guard.

Until then, it seems that the locals are behaving as if it is a permanent attraction.

It has only been on the shores of Sunset Beach for a few weeks, but it is already making its mark on the hearts, minds and travel plans of locals.

Take a look at Google Maps and see if you can see the unofficial BARGE CHILLING PARK:

The reviews are filled with bad puns, touching anecdotes, long stories and good travel advice.

Whether you’re on the joke or you can ‘t put your head around what all the fuss is about, the barge on the beach is definitely a lot of nonsense about nothing.
