When travelling east-west in Richmond, a scenic alternative to the central arteries is River Road, which runs along the northern shoreline, separated by dike from the North Arm of the Fraser River.
A view westward down the North Arm. Pylons and log booms.
A tug, "Dorothy Mackenzie," pulling a never-ending boom. The far shore is the south end of east Vancouver.
And a Great Blue Heron in spring plumage, waiting for spring to arrive.
