It was a hot day on Canada Day. My friend and I left the salmon festival after we had BBQ’d salmon, and we walked toward the Steveston Harbour. There were a few ships docked near the harbour and lots of people going in. There were also a lot of people walking around the pier and fisherman’s boats or having food at restaurants nearby.

We walked for one hour or so, and I was tired by the heat from the sunshine and thought that my mom-to-be friend must need some rest more than I do. Using our final strength, we found a café where we finally seemed to sit down, which was Steveston Coffee, close from Steveston Harbour Pier.

Steveston Coffee is a small café that there are only 2 tables. They server sandwiches or baked stuff, too.

We ordered from their cold drink.

My friend probably ordered mango peach. No picture because it was too hot and we were so thirsty to take a picture before drinking. 🙂 We were sitting at the cafe over one hour even after their closing time! The staff was nice, cleaning quietly and not letting us know it was passed the time.

And, here is a picture of the restaurant exterior.

They have their own coffee made, so I would like to try, and maybe buy some beans next time.

The last day of the Canada Day long weekend was the actual Canada Day, July 1st. Collin made some plan with his friend, so I sent a message to my mom-to-be friend before noon and asked what she was going to do that day. She replied that she was cleaning up and had an appointment for hair salon in the evening. When I told her my plan that I was thinking to go to Steveston Salmon Festival but it would be tight for her to come with me, she immediately said she would cancel the appointment! Haha. 😀

Anyways, she offered driving and picked me up in the afternoon. The traffic around the area was terrible, but we managed to park at some place, close to school, maybe? We walked from there to the festival.

The first thing we did was line up for Salmon BBQ! Well, you can’t ignore that, once you saw those BBQ’d salmon, can you?

Despite the line up, it didn’t take a long time to get the plate.

The piece of salmon was bigger than we imagined, and the taste was great. We both enjoyed. When we finished eating and walked in front of the booth, all salmon was sold out! We just made it!
