Goodbye, Little Ferry
Last night I went to Fort Langley, where the Albion Ferry docked during its 50 year run on the Fraser River. About a month ago the ferry service was replaced by the Golden Ears Bridge, and the boats are now at the Maple Ridge Terminal, awaiting a new home. While the new bridge is necessary, it was sad to see them there. I will treasure the memory of foot passenger crossings with the sun in my face and the wind in my hair.
