White Rock BC is on the route between Seattle and Vancouver. The highway takes you on the edge of town, the train right through the center. I'd gone past or through it more times than I can remember, but I'd never actually gone there. On the way home from my last Canadian road trip, I wanted to stretch those final few vacation moments, so I finally stopped.
I started at the information center, where I was told to enjoy the oceanfront promenade and to check out the museum. Also, to make sure I saw the White Rock (after which the town was named). She refused to name a restaurant, promising that people voted with their feet and if a place didn't have good food, it wouldn't last , but also added that I should head toward East Beach if I wanted take out fish'n'chips. Based on the people I saw enjoying their food from various places up and down the way - she was right. I loved my quick outdoor dinner by the water.
At the end my post meal walk along the promenade, I found this statue of a Grizzly Bear, staring out at the Pacific.
