Tannery Rd

Another Sunday, another breakfast and another curious drive. With the smoke from the fires all but dissipated, the air was fresh and cool. There's definitely a tilt in the temperature toward autumn. Soon we'll be marveling at the changing leaves and reaching for sweaters again.
We crossed over the Pattullo bringe and followed Tannery road for the most part, meandered along the river's edge exploring the industrial area in Surrey.

New West is building up, up, up, but not providing thoroughfares
to accommodate all the cars coming into the community!

Surprise view behind Snitzer Metals

It's the middle of August. The heat has been relentless for weeks.

The province is burning!

The swelling clouds of smoke can be seen from space. The smoke in the air burns the eyes, chokes the weak. The air is tainted a gritty orange.We're experiencing the worse air quality ever recorded. 

We headed out this Sunday crossing the Pattullo Bridge again to explore the Surrey side of the Fraser River.

We watched cars being grabbed and piled into the back of trucks before a security guard shooed us away. We came upon a derelict ship sitting hull deep in the muck of low tide. The sensor on my camera picked up on the gritty orange tinge of the air as evident in the images I captured. (they remind me of sepia tones of olden day photos)
