Fort Camping

For many of us it wouldn’t be summer without a camping trip. There’s something about heading out and “getting back to nature” (no matter how many luxuries we take along) that just can’t be beat. Who doesn’t love playing card games at a picnic table, cooking breakfast outside, or eating a s’more with some family or friends?  Unfortunately, if you’re like me, you might not have the time to head out on a cross-country road trip. Luckily, Langley has all the facilities you need to have a true “camping experience” without the long drive or hefty fuel bill.

Solar-Dancing-Flower-Green-500AThe only plant I seem to be able to keep alive is the dancing flower wearing sunglasses that sits on my counter at home … and yes it may be plastic, but that’s a minor detail. As I clearly did not inherit the green thumb my mother has, I resort to the next best thing which is buying local flowers, fruit, and produce! Here in Langley we are extremely fortunate to be surrounded by such a rich agriculture industry. From fruit and berries, to veggies and even vineyards there are so many different crops for us to enjoy!

Round three of the Langley Project took place on my birthday. Since it was my birthday I decided that gave me license to make all of my stops consist of decadent culinary samplings (here’s hoping that my personal trainer isn’t reading this). In the late afternoon I found myself at the lovely Milsean Shoppe in Aldergrove. 397938_318158168220296_2017260846_nMilsean is a lovely shop filled with many local and artisan products. There is a lot to look at and I enjoyed browsing the shop. They are best known for their famous (and delicious) Milsean Demerara Butter Crunch, but the deliciousness doesn’t stop there. They stock 75 gourmet teas and specialty drinks, excellent food, and decadent desserts. I treated myself to a decadent blended espresso drink, complete with chocolate, whipped cream and their famous Butter Crunch on top.

Williams Park is located at 68th Ave and 238 St in Langley. It’s a beautiful park featuring a great picnic shelter perfect for family BBQ’s, a playground, and a small network of trails. The Salmon River is the highlight of this park, which provides stunning, picturesque river and forest views. Below is a map of the park and its trail network. An oasis in the summertime, the tree canopy lets in just enough sunlight to provide some sparkling warmth, but keeps it cool enough to enjoy during mid-summer heat spells.
