We went to Westminster Quay. It is a wonderful board walk along the entire frontage of the city of New Westminster. This whole area used to be light industrial . But has been reclaimed and is now a marvelous place to stroll on a sunny day. The paddle wheelers are docked here, a reminder of the watery heritage of this place.
On our way home we pass this place, located a few minutes drive from my home. I pass it most days on my commute. For weeks now I have been seeing this barn reflected in the water and thought what a great shot it would make. I never had my camera with me on those days where a great photo op presented itself. This shot is taken looking east at 2.30 pm. My dad had his camera with him and he got me to pull over and got these two awesome photos. There is actually Mt. Baker, a glacial Volcano just beyond those distant clouds. Sometimes it can be seen in the water also. Sorry, it was hiding for this shot.
This is is the same farm, taken from the same spot, but looking westward. What, at first glance, appears to be a lake, is actually an underwater field. Hydroponics? Not quite. The days upon days of rain has taken its toll. Most of the farms have had standing water for weeks. Although it has been really nice for a couple of days, the ground is still saturated. We will be needing quite a few days of dry weather before this all drains away. But at least the ducks are happy.
Thanks Dad for getting these for me to share here.
