My brother recently returned from a five month stay in Thailand and spent the weekend with us on the west coast before returning to his home in Edmonton, Alberta.  Being a lovely Sunday, we visited the historic fishing village of Steveston, on the Fraser River.

We had fun strolling along the boardwalk where we discovered a newly erected wood sculpture depicting an Orca mother and baby.  A great photo op.

 

 

 

 

We noticed smoke coming from a fish boat and then – horrors, a body in the water! My husband pointed out it was the Richmond Fire Department conducting on the water disaster training.  I then realized the body in the water did look a bit like a “dummy”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We walked down to the fish boats where the fishers were selling their fresh catch.  Many families were out taking in the mild weather and making a purchase for to take home for dinner.  There were many choices, salmon, sole, snapper and shrimp to name a few.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our mouths watered as we walked by a number of fish and chip shops. But it was too late for lunch, which we already had, and too early for dinner.  So we stopped at Waves Coffee Bar, another new addition since our last visit, where I enjoyed a delicious London Fog and yummy cinnamon swirl while brother and hubby had coffee and other delectable treats. We sat outside and people watched. After a tough week at work it was just what I needed.

Spring on the south west coast of Canada is so lovely with cherry blossoms, tulips and daffodils everywhere you look.  I spotted some narcissus outside the coffee shop that looked almost artificial they were so perfect.  I am so lucky to live in this beautiful part of the world.  If you visit Vancouver, make sure you take a trip to Steveston Village in Richmond.

 

What is the best part of where you live? 

 

Here's looking at you!
