First Part of the Journey – 2015 (10 photos)

We spent a lot of our two days exploring the banks of the Fraser River that flows through the Vancouver/Lower Mainland area. These photos are taken in New Westminster on the BC Parkway, a boardwalk that is built over the banks of the Fraser.

The boardwalk is beautiful with the river on one side and flower gardens and trees on the other.
