This gallery contains 3 photos. Etched in stone is an enchanting bit of poetry immortalized against the elements of wind, sand, and storm. This memory stone is one of many found throughout Surrey’s Crescent Beach. Photographed on a delightfully sunny June 21. More examples of signs can be found here.
This interpretive sign chronicles explorer James McMillan’s 25-day expedition from the Columbia River to the Fraser River in 1824. Conducted on behalf of the Hudson’s Bay Company, his journey to find a new site for a fur trading depot led to the construction of Fort Langley, the first European post on the coast of BC.
The nature trail portion of Crescent Beach is known as Blackie Spit Park, a haven for dragonflies and close to 200 species birds of many different feathers. This sign signals the start of the 5 km trail–an adventure that we took a leisurely 2+ hours to finish.
