White Rock B.C.

White Rock beach was where we took our walk on Saturday. It certainly still had that summer getaway feel to it.

This small mural depicting the White Rock beach front decorates the front of one of the Marine Drive eateries. (Click on pictures to enlarge.)

One of the many spirit bear statues found in various places around the lower mainland, is on the plaza in front of the old train station. It is part of the “Spirit Bears in the City” project.

The Spirit Bear is actually the Kermode Bear. This white bear is not a polar bear or an albino but a recessive gene black bear. These bears inhabit various parts of the rain forest in British Columbia and have been adopted by some as a symbol of British Columbia.
