Fort Langley – Pemberton – Nanoose Bay (Vancouver Island),

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Maple Ridge is built along the Fraser River. Across the Fraser is Fort Langley.
The original fort was a trading post of the Hudson Bay Company.

To deal with the potential social and political upheavals caused by the great influx of American adventurers the British Parliament decided to provide for a crown colony on the Pacific Mainland with James Douglas as the first Governor of British Columbia. Fort Langley was the location of this proclamation on November 19, 1858.

We also visited Pemberton, the potato capital of BC, or maybe even of Canada, who knows..
We walked the shortest of the routes at “One Mile Lake“.
From there we drove to the “Pemberton Distillery” where we were very pleasantly welcomed and educated about the ins and outs of the certified organic distillery.

We checked out the art on the lawns of the “Big Sky Golf and Country Club” and had lunch at the “Black Squirrel Restaurant” at the “Meadows at Pemberton” Golf course.

The weekend we spent on Vancouver Island, in Nanoose Bay.
It was a special family weekend and most of it we enjoyed at “Pacific Shores Resort & Spa
