My nephew Nick, was visiting from Edmonton last summer. We took him for a walk on the local dikes and met up with this horse and rider. There are a lot of horses in these parts and Maple Ridge is affectionately known as Horse Capital of Canada!
Nick looks into the soul of this gentle equine being.

This wonderful old pick up truck caught my eye.
It was parked in a farm yard on the west side of town.
A blackberry hedge protects the perimeter of the property. I'll have to keep this spot in mind when blackberry season arrives!
Does anyone know what model and year this truck is?

The Alouette River is receding but still high. The fence post here are still partly submerged. The dikes are holding all this water back. This is where we love to canoe. Nice calm waters and no speedboats to contend with. You can see the mountains in the distance still have snow on them, which is really unusual for this time of year.

Maple Ridge is gearing up for summer.
Floral hanging baskets swing from every downtown lamp post. There are new banners all along the main street. Everything is looking so pretty.
The city has been making improvements to our downtown core over recent years. Its all coming together and starting to really make a nice impression.
