Fort Langley, Cranberry Festival & Market
We were up at 10:00, had a quick breakfast, got ready, got in the car and headed on up to Fort Langley.
This is a small ‘township’ out east, fairly close to the USA border.
It took us around 1 hour to get there and then we had to find some parking as there were a lot of cars parked everywhere!
We managed to find a spot next to a school which was luckily just a short walk from the middle of the town.
We walked to the town and the first thing we saw was their farmer’s market, which they seem to do every Saturday. This was full of some jams, cheeses, booze and trinkets, all home made!
We smelled and saw a perogie stall which was busy, but they only took cash, so we walked down to (the only) bank in the town which there was a large queue for!
We got some money out and then went back up to get perogies. They had a few different things cooking, so we got a plate each with everything on!
There were perogies, a sausage, onions and some kind of hamburger meat wrapped in lettuce in a spice sauce, all topped with a cream sauce.
It was all ok, but Curtis had liked the sausage the most and the lettuce wrap thing the least.
Kim really liked the perogie and disliked the sausage the most.
Once we finished eating, we went over to the cranberry festival market.
This was a whole street rammed with stalls, a lot selling cranberry related items, such as cranberry beer,chocolate and bakery items.
We walked around looking at this for a while and trying a few samples, and then went to find a place for a coffee.
Curtis got a large cappuccino and it tasted odd. Kim wanted an ice cream so we found an ice cream place and she got a creamy salted caramel cone.
We watched the dragon boat race as someone from Kim’s work was apparently competing, but we didn’t see her.
After the race, we finished our food and drink and saw a couple of antique stores, so we had to go in! The town was old and quaint, so perfect for an antique store.
We spent probably far too long in there, but some of the items were super cool!
We drove back home which didn’t take too long and we got back in perfect time for Curtis to watch the Leafs game.
Whilst he did that, Kim had to go to the city and do stuff for work, on a Saturday!
She rewarded herself by going to a few shops whilst she we in the area and managed to get us both dressing gowns too.
(Bad) Katsu Curry
Kim got home shortly after the leafs game finished and we decided it was dinner time.
We wanted Katsu Curry, so found a couple of Japanese restaurants and picked one.
We picked wrong!
This was a Japanese pub of some sort and was falling apart and was not busy at all.
We eventually ordered after waiting for a long time. We each got a chicken curry and we ordered a vegetable donburi to share.
All of the food was mediocre and the service was awful. We left and almost certainly won’t go back there again.
We got back home and snuggled on the sofa to watch some TV.
