On the weekend, we visited Steveston, a touristy little waterfront town in the south suburbs. It’s got some mildly-interesting shopping and a lot of good food. Some of the restaurants are elegant, but we prefer Pajo’s; fish & chips on a floating dock at the west end of town. Good fish & chips are not that easy to find. The waterfront was formerly industrial (fish-canning mostly) and is becoming recreational/residential. But there are a lot of old wooden pilings left in in the water.

As you can see, they’re not idle; each one is put to good use by opportunistic vegetation and wildlife.

The closer you get, the more interesting they look.

Great pics! Are you sure they were not ray-traced?
