Lingering in Langley

Yesterday my brother and I went around Langley to see what the town he calls home has to offer. 

It was nice to see this town which I know well, and see it at a slower pace. I liked the one way shopping streets which contain a stretch of unique and interesting shops. 

We had a nice lunch with mother at a Mexican restaurant along this stretch. It was nice to catch up with her. 

After that we walked to a nearby park to take some photos of the three of us. Here are some that I took.

What visit to Langley would be complete without a visit to a farm. We went to Krause Berry Farms. This was not a fruit stand on the edge of their property, this was a proper store nicely situated within their property. I bought what can only be described as an overflowing berry explosion pie (in true me-fashion, i forgot to take a pic of the pie). Take a look at what this place looks like.

After that we went to the lovely smaller town of Fort Langley, so named after the nearby HBC Fort, called “Fort Langley.” This one predated the railroad and I can’t imagine the long trek it would take to resupply this outpost. Here are some shots of the town. 

From there we went back home, had dinner together then went out to Crescent Beach in hopes to have a firepit on the beach. As it turns out there is a fireban in effect and even so you can’t have fires on the beach until like September. Ah well, here are some nice shots to finish the day.

I leave to head home today and I have yet to find a “Vancouver” sticker for Wanda. Ah well, I am not about to drive into Vancouver with Wanda as she will get pinched and hit in that claustrophobic traffic or I will get stuck and cause an epic traffic jam. 

I plan to drive to Revelstoke and stay there for the night. Then tomorrow I will continue on and perhaps stay a day or two in Banff to relax before heading home, who knows.
