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.
