Peaceful





A day out in our favorite village: Steveston. This time we went to the shipyards on the other side of the marine history site.

It was so peaceful and quiet There was no one around but the ducks and gulls - and us. Crows struggled with branches trying to pull off twigs for their nests. A heron - or maybe an eagle - sat so still in a tree way across the river.

Looking west, we could see the snow-covered mountains of Vancouver Island. Looking north, we could see the black clouds over the mountains at home and basked in the sunshine on the pier a little while longer.

Tranquil scenery that brings back happy memories. It's a lovely spot - and quite surprising to find so near the big urban metropolis.
