Around Town

Steveston is a little corner of Richmond.  When our grandparents lived here there were numerous canneries, a large fishing  fleet  and a few farms.  Now Steveston is a place to come to wander the waterfront, have some fish and chips, check out the shops and of course the garden centre.  The canneries are all gone but the fishing fleet remains and seafood can be purchased right off the boats at the public sales dock.  The Historic Gulf of Georgia Cannery and Brittannia Shipyards are great places to visit.  Walk around and see if you can spot the stores and restaurants where the TV series Once Upon a Time is filmed, or toss a line into the Fraser off the public fishing float.
