Early Morning Stroll along the Quay [06.26.2015]

No matter how many times you wander down to the New Westminster Quay, there always seems to be something new I come across. I took advantage of a day off and was down on the boards by about 6:30am. Early morning light makes for some great exposures. I will have to get down there at sunset/dusk to see what the light is like at that time of day.

A beautiful view even with the working ships.

Freshly watered hanging baskets.

Self proclaimed "World's Tallest Tin Soldier".
The Inn at the Quay opened in August of 1988. It sits on pillars that extend right out into the river. All of its nautically themed rooms are positioned to look either up or down the river.

Heading along the shoreline to New Westminster's new Pier Park.
'Modern' architecture book-ending beautiful older buildings.

Heading back.
I love me some shadow and light.

Heavy duty bumper action.
Simon Fraser. The river was named for this guy.

 It was a lovely way to spend a morning off.
