I had a break at work today, so decided to go for a walk at Garry Point Park in Steveston.
In one corner, they have made a memorial garden to honour all the Japanese people that made Steveston home during the fishing boom of the last century.
Another memorial in the park, is the Fisherman's Memorial to honour souls that were lost at sea. The needle on top of the memorial is a replica of the needles used to make fishing nets. My Mothers Father was a lobster fisherman and her job was to repair the nets with these needles. I still have a box of them that I inherited from her.
Doesn't it look like this salmon is crying, kind of a statement about the condition of our oceans!
This guy is getting dragged around the park by his kite while he rides a long board, looks like fun!
...and then it started to rain. I went back to the car to try and wait it out, but after 45 minutes I had to go back to work. Note to self, put an umbrella in the car!
