So the excuse for eating a huge plate of fish and chips is…
Taking a 5 km walk along the Frazer River to the restaurant and then, walking the 5 km back.
Good plan, don’t you think? Especially on a lovely day like today.
Really wanted to be out in Kayaks too.
Getting closer. I can see the dock in Steveston.
Everyone out enjoying the river, and, since this is a delta, the river is really calm here. Beyond that island is more river, and more islands, and even some mainland, and more river etc…
What a great day to hang the laundry out. Don’t you just love fresh sun-dried linens?
There’s the fish market pier. Fresh daily under those tarps. You can buy almost any pacific fish you want here.
And lots of …um…non-fishy ocean thingies. I’ve no idea where these sea urchins came from but I’ve never seen them diving along the Vancouver mainland coast line. I thought they were really beautiful but couldn’t imagine who would buy them.
Here’s my answer! Look at the plastic bag. Stuffed full of sea urchins.
A bit more mooching round the dock and off for that huge plate of fish and chips. (with ketchup and vinegar…pepper, pepper, pepper salt.)
