A 5 hour boat cruise – a la Gilligan’s Island theme
30 Day Adventures is about exploring my backyard in the Lower Mainland and that includes the suburbs, Pitt Meadows to be specific. Many of us that live in the downtown core for whatever reason often scoff at the idea of trekking out to the burbs to just hang out and explore, well not this boy. Pitt Meadows here I come. Full disclosure I caught a ride from Downtown Vancouver to Pitt Meadows Airport by my friend John Biehler who also agreed to share some of his amazing photos with me. You’ll see the difference trust me To see more of John’s photos check out his Flickr page and his own blog,
Our tour guide Ulrich kept us entertained with stories and bits of history all day long. He also kept us groaning with some bad puns and jokes but after 30 years he needs to keep it fresh as well. I have to say Ulrich gave us a bit of a BC History 101 class on this trip. It’s simply amazing how much I don’t know about my own province.
At this point we gone under the bridges, passed some islands, saw the tugs at work and are now about to leave the Fraser and enter Pitt Lake, the worlds 2nd largest tidal lake.
I highly recommend this tour for everyone. It’s a great day filled with history, fantastic scenery, meeting new people and they even throw a nice lunch and some afternoon treats in as well. Not bad for $94.95 + HST per person. I want to say a special thanks to Tourism Maple Ridge & Pitt Meadows for inviting me out to experience this adventure. Don’t forget you can board the trip either from Westminster Quay or the Pitt Meadows airport float plane dock.
Ok for my next adventure you’ll just have to wait and see.
