I’m sharing more photos from our recent trip to Fort Langley. I’ve shared a couple posts on this area already.

Canada new book launch 115I have a confession to make and that is that we did not actually visit the Fort in Fort Langley. We walked a bit along the river and enjoyed some shops and churches and had an enjoyable meal at a new place in town called Trading Post Brewing.

We enjoyed the servers and the food that we were served. I’ve noticed that I use the word enjoy a lot and I’m not going to apologize for that. I will choose to have joy in the simple everyday things and the extraordinary things in my life.

I would visit Fort Langley again to see the things we missed. It’s a pleasant drive to this historic town and there are nice shops, a great local grocer, eating options and lovely places to walk. I still have some fun signs and fences to share in memes in the future. Time will tell if I will link this post with any memes this week.

Linking up to ABC Wednesday, F is for Fort Langley. Thank you Mrs. Nesbitt and the whole Fabulous ABC team!

I’ve enjoyed some Olympics, baking, organizing. If you don’t see something new here in the next few days don’t worry. Lord willing, I’ll share some new things that are happening around this old house soon. The Lord be with you and with your loved ones wherever your rails take you this week and in whatever you are experiencing!

  1. Absolutely beautiful photo of the roses!! I also enjoyed seeing the train station, tracks, and the velocipide! I saw my first velocipide a couple years ago at a railroad museum. Always love to see tracks…and trains, except when they make a habit of blocking the road on my way home out of a certain town…but still, if I’m not in a hurry, it can be a pleasant break. 🙂

  2. You were in my neck of the woods when visiting Fort Langley. Lovely pictures. Next time you may want to explore some of the trails, especially The Fort to Fort trail. I’ll be riding the rails to Portland via Amtrak this coming Thursday and going by your neck of the woods. Always enjoy your posts. Congrats on the New MGCC devotional book. Got one from Bev.

  3. It looks like a great visit even without visiting the fort!

    (My confession: I had to read the sign twice before I realized that Wallace Walnut referred to the tree. I think it’s a little to late for my brain…) 🙂

  4. A lovely post and the FOOD looks FABULOUS,
    I love the FINISH with the railway track, I wonder
    how FAR to go before the next stop?
    I hope it’s somewhere really FANTASTIC??
    Blessings to you dear Ellen.

  5. Wish I’d known you were here as it’s only a 40 min drive from my place! Next time, you must go into the Fort as there’s lots more to see and hear about our history. But you did the town and isn’t it lovely!!! I go there in early October to buy my cranberries at a place down the lane past the fancy fence on the main drag. Did you see the 50s Café??? It’s so much fun in there as you can put a quarter in the jukebox at any table or in the machine at the back section and jive along with all the old 50s singers! So glad you had a good time!
