An almost spring day.

It’s usually a good bet that if it’s raining in the mountains, (the ones I live right under), it will be much brighter and sunnier in the Delta.

The Lower Mainland is a magical place. At one of the southern most parts, the south arm of the majestic Fraser River spills into the Pacific and you can walk along the river for miles and miles.

If you do take the walk you will eventually end up in the lovely little village of Steveston. The Steveston docks are abuzz with people all wanting to buy the fresh catch of the day at the dockside fisherman’s market.

That’s where I spied young Sophie, the fisherman’s daughter, on the lookout for something interesting.

I saw something interesting…a bald eagle on one of the mast of one of the fishing boats.

Lots of people saw him too.

But Sophie was more into things at dock level.

I walked down on the docks to buy some fresh fish.

Sophie settled down for an afternoon of people watching.

Well now, why didn’t I think of killer heels for the dock? Hmm, not as forward thinking as this girl.

Found what I was looking for and bought some lovely salmon.

One last look and time to walk the two miles back to the car before the rain sets in again. This was a great day. 🙂

    You have a blessed life, Veronica. I knew you blog would give me a lift this morning…it did. The beautiful photography…seeing a bald eagle on the sea…a delightful surprise. Let us know how you cooked your salmon.

    I love your excursions – it is one of my goals to do more of these, inspired by you and your sense of curiosity and appreciation

    Okay, those killer heels and white pants just did me in. I would be unable to actually walk on that dock with something like that on my feet and if I wore white pants I would probably look 5 lbs heavier. My folks live on Vancouver Island; just talked to my dad and he said it’s beautiful there. I love going to Vancouver down to Granville Island and browsing through that awesome market and then going to look at the houseboats. Reminds me I need to get over to Vancouver one of these days.
