Barnston Island Ride

April 30, 2012

With the clouds collecting on the local mountains, it was time to head out somewhere it would be less likely to rain.  The boys had never been to Barnston island, and with it’s quiet ring road it is a perfect place for a ride.

The train, machines and dump trucks in the area were a hit with the boys (although waiting for the train to cross took a while), and that was all before the parking lot.  I also noticed trails I had never seen before.  Later checking the sign it turns out there is a GVRD park at the point with trails, we will have to check out one of these days.

As we pulled in to the parking lot, the ferry arrived, however as we were unloading the bikes, it left, causing a little stress for the boys.  It is a very short ferry trip, and by the time I had the bikes ready and car closed up it had returned and was ready for us to walk on.
