Last Saturday we drove daughter Elisa, J, our granddaughters and piles of luggage to the airport. They are off to Europe to work and travel until Christmas. My, the house is quiet now with just the three of us!

As we often do when we drive somewhere farther, and it being a gorgeous day, and we were already in Richmond (where the airport is), we decided to have an outing. It had been many years since we had been to the fishing village of Steveston, on the southernmost edge of Richmond (a city south of Vancouver). We were surprised to find how much this has been developed, with the old Britannia Shipyard now a national historic site, and lovely walks on top of the dike leading to the lively Fisherman’s Wharf where we indulged in fresh seafood while sitting on a sunny patio watching crowds shopping for fish straight off the boats.

So, lots of photos to show you (starting with the locked doors) for I went camera happy over the interesting old shipyard and the fishing boats.
