Railroad Avenue

Saturday morning on Railroad Avenue, with bustling little shops and restaurants. This was taken earlier this month, when a walk outside actually sounded pleasant. If I'd taken this picture more recently, the only people on the street would be wearing rain gear and be in heads-down survival mode.

Click here to read some history and see old pictures from Railroad Avenue.

A quick comment from my October 22 post-- my sister has decided she has to keep the infamous kitchen wallpaper. Once the image circulated through her workplace, there were so many in favor of it she feared a mutiny if she tore it down. Viva la revolution!


  1. I'm glad for the wallpaper update. Thanks for letting us know. Try to stay dry.

  2. I love visiting the Railroad Avenue area, especially in the summer when the Farmer's Market is held. This time of year when it's "survival mode" you might find me inside Boundary Bay with a brew to fortify myself for a blustery day.

  3. Ah yes, Boundary Bay-- the best thing on Railroad!

  4. This looks like a great place to walk. Thanks for the link to the history.
