Kwomais Point Park At A Glance

KWOMAIS POINT PARK in Ocean Park, Surrey, BC, haunts me with its picturesque views and tranquil beauty. The revitalized historic site where eagles soar, seagulls play and meditation happens naturally reminds me that diverse groups of fascinating people throughout the ages were attracted to the same grassy edge that I love to visit. I can easily envision First Nation's people of long ago scanning the horizon for approaching enemies as well as friendly traders carrying goods.

The countryside bluff is an ideal vantage point overlooking Semiahmoo and Boundary Bays in Canada. Birch Point in the US can be seen to the south and Point Roberts (also in the US) is to the west. Between these two points are Galiano, Mayne and Saturna Islands on the Canadian side. On a very clear day the Alex Fraser Bridge with its architectural beauty can be spotted at a distance providing a compelling overlap of modern and ancient times.

  3. Your photographs were always lovely, but seem to have that "something extra" lately. Absolutely beautiful landscapes! Yes, we are so fortunate to have such beauty right at our fingertips. To think I never even saw the ocean until I was well into adulthood.

  4. I love the top photo. It brings me right back to walks in the park. Then there are all those shots of the ocean. How many times have we been there without a camera. Yes, I agree with Carol, you do have something extra lately. I think you've crossed that vague and invisible line from person-taking-pictures to photographer. And I believe you've done it all your own way. I remember when the photographer in your family was your husband, now I think you've taken over the role yourself. Maybe the Penelope years did it, without you realizing it was happening? Or maybe you really worked at it, but didn't tell me? ;~)
    Hugs, anyway. -- K
