People Magnet At Kwomais Point Park

WHEN IT ISN'T RAINING sunsets blaze a little brighter during autumn at Kwomais Point Park in South Surrey, BC, where I often visit.

The area overlooking Boundary Bay is a compelling feature for people taking their evening stroll in the neighbourhood. A woman was there ahead of me with her camera trying to capture the magic of the rapidly changing hues.

Soon more people gathered to soak in the stunning scene.

But it is not just the showy sunsets that attract onlookers day after day.

Even in the mornings when the horizon is a blank slate and the sea is shrouded in mist, people are drawn like magnets to the edge of the park to ponder life and to marvel at existence.

  1. Fabulous sunset shots, my dear friend. I could feel myself there with you at our favourite spot. I was just thinking about R&C&J&J & Jasper. J1 turned10 this week and she was going to Banff with her mom and her mom's brother's family. J2 will be 8 next month.
    Thyme fries, as my other brother would say. Luv, K

  12. What a lovely spot. I have spent so many hours trying to capture sunsets and my photos never really do them justice, but yours are particularly beautiful.

  14. I can see why it is a people magnet. But where does everyone park? The neighbors are rather, well not happy when anyone drives down their street.

  15. Hi Jen, There is actually a fair bit of parking on the opposite side of the area pictured here, through the forest path to 128th Street. I think people within walking distance of Kwomais tend to frequent this park the most but some make a special effort to drive out if they live somewhat nearby … especially when it looks like there will be a great sunset. :)
