  WHERE WE LIVE: Our home is in Richmond next to the spectacularly beautiful city of VANCOUVER which has the mountains, the sea, theatre and all the big city amenities you desire, and is often listed in the top 3 of the worlds most livable cities. Richmond is an attractive modern town with plenty of amenities, with shopping, parks, walks and excellent transit connections on our new fast Skytrain to downtown Vancouver in only 25 minutes.

We are next to the Fraser River where you can walk, bike, jog, bird watch and spot bald Eagles or whatever, and have terrific views of the mountains, the ocean and the Gulf Islands. We are also a short walk into the quaint fishing village of Steveston where you can buy fresh fish straight off the boats including salmon, prawns and many others when in season. There are also coffee shops, stores, museums, whale watching, a boardwalk, a farmers market and many good restaurants. A great place to stay !

Things to do ~ ski in the morning (3 ski mountains), golf in the afternoon (plenty of golf courses) and sail in the evening (or watch the sunset). Take the ferry to Vancouver Island which is a beautiful sail through the Gulf Islands and visit the attractive city of Victoria where there are many things to see and do.
