Q is for Quay





Living on the 
West Coast 
of British 
Columbia means 
that our 
weekend 
outings often 
take us 
to the sea.








Lonsdale Quay, North Vancouver
Over the years, we have spent much time on quays, wharfs, docks and piers. I have finally learned to keep my camera with me at all times to capture photos of what catches our imaginations.

Fishing boats,Steveston, B.C.




My husband 
and spent 
a while 
imagining that 
we might buy 
this old boat 
to fix up 
and run away 
to sea in. 






Regrettably, 
we are still 
land bound...
 The fishing community of Finn Slough, situated in Richmond, B.C.


Fraser River, Surrey, B.C.

Patullo Bridge, Surrey, B.C.


 Of all the usual haunts, our perennial favourite is the hamlet of White Rock. We have spent many contented hours enjoying its simple beauty.



I'm linking this post to ABC Wednesday, and suggest you drop by and check out other takes on the letter'Q'...

As a land-locked prairie girl, boats, quays, the ocean and such fascinate me.

I have been to all these locations and must say you've done a spectacular job with your photos! We must meet up sometime and go on a photo safari together!
