A Reason to Steveston

May 7, 2009

A short drive from the city, historic Steveston is a sweet way to spend
a sunny day.

whale watching season now in full swing, hopping on a Steveston
Seabreeze Adventures
boat, with its hydrophones to eavesdrop on Orca
chitchat, is well worth it. Or if youre a land lover, rent a tandem
bicycle ($10/hr) to cruise the quaint streets or spectacular seaside
South Dyke Trail. Steveston Seabreeze Adventures, 12551 No. 1 Rd.,
Richmond, 604-272-7200,

After working up an appetite, head to the
classic fish n chips joint Pajos
and indulge cod, salmon or halibut cravings. Sit on one of the many
Adirondack chairs and soak in the rays while your fresh-cut fries soak
up the malt vinegar. Pajo’s on the wharf, Corner of Bayview and Third
Ave., 604-272-1588,

Youll have a hard time walking away from

($7.95)with strict instructions on how to make a perfect cup inside
every packet. To inspire future sojourns, also take home one of
