The fog we've been experiencing for the last week is continuing. The fog is found in the valley near the Fraser River, in low lying areas such as the city of Richmond, English Bay, Burrard Inlet and the Georgia Strait. Yesterday as I left home for work, New Westminster wasn't too bad except near the river but as we got to Vancouver on the train, the mist became more evident. That's pretty well what was seen all day at work yesterday: fog! The photo above was taken Sunday from the Fraser Cemetery in Sapperton (New Westminster). You can see the mist above the Fraser River in the distance. In Vancouver it was a different story as can be seen in the photo below taken along the seawall in Stanley Park, just past the 2nd beach. English Bay was shrouded in fog and the fog horns from freighters could be heard constantly. There was a photo posted on one of the local papers on the weekend of the office towers in downtown Vancouver poking through the fog, the city fog-shrouded except for that! I believe the photo was taken from Grouse Mountain, which of course enjoyed sun-filled skies! If this continues into the weekend, I will make a trip to Burnaby Mountain, an excellent vantage point, and take some photos from there. Meantime, I'm off to work!
