arrives in Vancouver. For the past few months emails have been going back and forth from Montreal to Vancouver, where it was David Masse's desire to meet up with other bloggers during his whirlwind visit. A few of us were able to meetup to show him some of the highlights of our City and also share a meal or two.
Because of our tight time schedule I decided to leave work early on Friday to allow time for a short ride to Steveston. After a few text messages, he managed to arrive right on schedule and this is my first glimpse of David, as he arrived on a scooter provided by Gary of rideawaymotors.ca
Traffic is a nightmare, bumper to bumper cars and it took a while before we could get over the Oak Street bridge then south to the quieter streets of south Richmond, where we finally arrived at our first destination Finn Slough . It a sleepy, photogenic place where you can just sit, relax and snap some photos. I come here often
David has already published his report of our outing and you can find his published report HERE . I wanted you to feel his impressions, from his first visit, and I will just post a few supplementary photos
I thought that David was busy snapping photos but he left his camera at his Hotel and is crippled with "just" a phone camera. I like to do environmental portraits, so I asked him to "pose" for me.
I think a photo like this would look good framed and hanging on his wall as a remembrance and a memory of a good time. We are soon mobile, riding along the water and various marinas where the fleets of fishing boats are moored and end up at the Government Dock in Steveston where David met Aime. It's a small world when you see the only other person on the dock and he just happens to come from Quebec.
Aime made a comment about our bikes and that's how it starts. Bikers talking to other bikers. I don't really know how their conversation was going as I am not fluent in French, but I can tell that they were really getting along together and talking about how things were back home where David lives
I had a surprise welcoming party at our next stop so we had to get underway . . . I didn't find out until later that SonjaM was also in Steveston about the same time as we were but this evening, our paths didn't cross. If you click her link you will notice the Government Pier in her third photo. Later she told me that she was there between 6pm-10pm. We had to leave around 6pm . What a co-incidence it would have been if David had met her "by accident" tonight
