As the most historically significant building in the lower mainland, Fort Langley receives a lot of visitors. I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve been there myself, but it’s definitely in the dozens. This year, because Canada is celebrating it’s 150th birthday, the Fort is free. Here are a few pictures of E’s first visit.
We started by building a wall in a storehouse. This tiny out building has removable walls and a ladder that leads up to a tiny, toddler sized attic.
Then we explored the other buildings including the smithy, trading post, manor house, and homes of the original inhabitants.
We visited the livestock and fed some lambs, them panned for gold.
Then into the city of Fort Langley for lunch at Little Donkey, and a walk.
And a bit of shopping, of course.
Fort Langley is beautiful any time of year, but I think early fall, as the trees along glover road create a tunnel of crimson and gold, is the most beautiful!
