Westminster Quay

Today was beautifully sunny, although frosty first thing.  Once it warmed up, Ray and I decided to take a drive into New Westminster and walk the boardwalk at Westminster Quay on the Fraser River. A brief outing only, as Ray's back has been quite troublesome for the past week. We had lunch at the Paddlewheeler Pub on the outside patio. It was a balmy 12C in the sunshine. A great way to spend a few hours outside soaking up the sunshine.

World's Tallest Tin Soldier

We managed to get a great spot for lunch right on the boardwalk.

I've been quite busy with estate stuff and finally have the Probated Will so Dad's house will go on the market for sale next week. Hopefully this will not take too long. 

In preparation for spring and summer, we bought our first purchase of patio furniture ... La Z Boy outdoor recliners from Canadian Tire.  This will ensure Ray's comfort (not to mention mine too) while sitting out under our gazebo on the sundeck.

Things are moving along with our lake house purchase. The occupancy permit problem has been solved so I think we are good to go. Other than that .... nothing more to report. :)


  1. Nice to see the weather turning for the better up there. Looked like a beautiful day!

    1. It certainly was. Hope you guys are having nice weather too. How exciting spending time with your kids and grandchildren.

  2. Save that sunshine, we're heading north soon! Glad everything is coming together for you.

  3. Nothing nicer than clear blue skies ove the lower mainland......except maybe the Island of course. Hope things continue in your favour on the house.
