To celebrate the last few weeks of the summer students’ jobs, the staff of the Port Moody Station Museum took to the water for a new perspective on Port Moody’s history. Thanks to Jamie and his staff at Rocky Point Kayak, we spent a morning exploring Port Moody from Burrard Inlet.
Setting out from Rocky Point, we started our trip by visiting the seals and their pups on the log booms as we passed the Flavelle Mill.
We paddled along the south shore until we reached Reed Point Marina, passing the site of the first CPR station in Port Moody along the way. After crossing over to the north shore of the inlet, we paddled past the old Ioco refinery and the Ioco town site – very important parts of Port Moody’s past and present.
All along the way we had beautiful views of the mountains and the water, saw plenty of wildlife (seals, herons, cormorants, and even sea lions!), and had a great time paddling, splashing, and laughing.
