A good friend of ours – Cheryl Ernest from Neepawa suggested that we might want to take a day trip to Steveston. Her husband Darren was raised there. Always appreciating travel recommendations – we headed to Steveston – a charming fishing village outside Richmond.

Over 600 fishing boats still utilize Steveston Harbour. The wharf has been developed to include a boardwalk for tourists to enjoy the scenery.

The Gulf of Georgia Cannery was built in 1894, and was the largest plant in British Columbia. It ceased operation in 1990, but remains open as a National Historic site of Canada.

We spent the day walking through the small stores and specialty shops. What would a visit to a fishing village be without a meal of fish & chips? We chose Dave’s Fish & Chips, primarily based on the line-up out the door. After a tolerable wait for a table, we feasted on authentic battered fish and fresh-cut chips. Best fish and chips we’ve ever eaten!
