As Barnet Marine Park is only a few minutes’ drive away from our home, we quite spontaneously decided to go there once again as it is indeed a lovely spot.
We found a nice picnic table near the beach area so that our boys could enjoy a swim in Burrard Inlet which they did!
Later we explored the park a bit and found the remains of the once very prosperous lumber mill: a scrap burner at the shoreline – and a concrete structure of the mill near the picnic area.
We also observed some seagulls, especially a pair that was doing everything together, and watched some Canada geese that were quite curious and came close to our picnic table. They did not get anything from us but we got the opportunity to get some close shots of them.
On our way home from Sasamat Lake, we quite spontaneously stopped at Barnet Marine Park where we found some benches in the shade from where we enjoyed the view.
Our boys, of course, went into the water again (which was pretty cold – so they said).
Once again, some Canada geese swam by, while others came up to the beach.
