Beyond Vancouver

Steveston BC – a great spot for fresh fish

Both my father and brother were mechanical engineers and I have always been fascinated by machinery. Plus, having never lived in one place for more than four years, the qualities that make a place unique continue to intrigue me. In 2003, I spent time in Steveston and its cannery. The village was less developed then and life revolved around the fishing fleets. I browsed the wonderful hardware and grocery stores, and ate in local cafes with their eclectic mix of patrons Just along the river is another delightful stop: Finn’s Slough a colony grown from the sheds once used to dry fishing nets .

Next week … more about the cannery.
