The Fraser River was our home, living in a float home a great experience
Living on the mighty Frazer river in a float home what a joy. On our first day we were greeted by swans, we were told they had not shown up for at least 6 month. We fed them but the food would often go down before they could get to it. So the solution was to give them cat food as it would drive.............. It did not take long and they flew up on our deck, we knew to be very careful because one hit with their wing could cost you a arm. Soon we lost our fear and we were never threatened but could walk around them. There was always lots to see and do on the river, fishing boats passing us as were tour boats. Many camera's were aimed at our home as we showed a lot of flowers every where. Two umbrellas one on each side of the deck making it all look very festive. Chinese Ducks flew in and other ducks. We could not swim in this river the tides were too strong. One hour a day, the river was quit as the tide turned. One end of the river ended in a scenic fishing village called Steveston in Richmond. Vancouver Why this river was called the Mighty Fraser The Fraser River is the longest river in British Columbia, stretching 1,375 km. It begins on the western side of the Rocky Mountains at Mount Robson Provincial Park, and ends in the Strait of Georgia at Vancouver.
