We are now back at school and work and our Spring Break Adventures for this year have come to an end. In addition to playing at Kits Beach and an Easter egg hunt in Queen’s Park in New Westminster (where we were too busy hiding and seeking to take photos), we took a trip to Steveston.
Steveston, set on the banks of the South Arm of the Fraser River, is an historic fishing village that is now part of the city of Richmond. Built in the 1890s, Steveston was home to many salmon canneries, including the Gulf of Georgia Cannery which is now a national historic site.
After lunch we played on the beach (having found some pieces of driftwood that doubled nicely as wizards’ staffs), had a look at the Fisherman’s Memorial, explored the Kuno Japanese Garden, then went a short way along the West Dyke Trail looking for turtles.
Enjoy some pictures from our Steveston adventure!
