Today was by far the best day since we came back to the Lower Mainland. After a bit of laundry, Doug, Parker and I walked across the bridge to Fort Langley. It's not like we hadn't been there before but it's different when you are sort of living there. So I thought that I might give you a little tour of the town.
Fort Langley is supposedly the birthplace of British Columbia. Other places make that claim as well but oh well. It's a pretty little "old town" full of expensive gift shops, boutiques and restaurants. On a Sunday afternoon there are lots of browsers. As Fort Langley is only about half an hour from Vancouver, most of the browsers are not locals.
Even on a Sunday afternoon there are long lines of people waiting to get into the more popular of the restaurants. But they do wait!
Doug and I had our lunch at The Fifties Diner, which seems to be in financial trouble but it did not have much of a wait. Parker is hardly visible under the table.
A couple of years ago, our son Jason and wife Michelle took Doug and I to this restaurant for my birthday. Super expensive. It is a piano bar and fondue is the specialty. The food was fantastic. The service was not but it had only been open a couple of months when we were there. I had a drink called a Fuzzy Peach. It almost knocked my socks off.
