Yesterday I went to Lighthouse Marine Park in Point Roberts. There was a parade with David Hewlett and then he spent an hour signing autographs at a table on the boardwalk at the park. See previous post for those pix.
Point Roberts is a 5 square mile peninsula south of Tsawwassen, BC. In 1846 The Oregon Treaty put the border between Canada and the U.S. at the 49th parallel and allowed this tiny piece of land to remain part of the U.S. This point was reserved for a lighthouse that was never actually built.
If you click on this picture and enlarge it, you can see the BC ferry terminals in the far background at the port in Tsawwassen, Delta, BC, just north of Point Roberts. Those ferries go to various points on Vancouver Island, BC where Victoria, the capital of the province, is located.
Driftwood on the edge of the park. The rocky beach is down a small incline. Removing driftwood from this park is against the law.
Sundial and anchors in the foreground and the boardwalk in the background.
Close up of the sundial.
20ft tall whale watching tower. The whales pass by the point from April to September.
I'm not exactly sure why nor who built these shelters...to watch the birds, which includes gulls and eagles?
