Let's sketch at a float home community in Ladner!

Please park on the street, then meet up in the parking lot of 3473 River Road West, the Marina WesDel float home community, which is next door to the Canoe Pass Float Homes. This is approximately ten minutes S/W of Ladner Village next to the Westham Island bridge. Look at for the giant red buoy in the parking lot and the banners with a crane motif. 

My sister-in-law lives in this float home community and has offered to let us sketch the amazing views from her 2 beautiful decks! You can also sketch from the dock, the parking lot, or the bridge.

This venue is a bit out of the way for some of you, but you might want to make a day of it by spending the morning at the quaint Ladner Village or at Westham Island's Reifel Bird Sanctuary, then wander over to the float homes for an afternoon of sketching!

You might want to organize carpooling for this meetup, as I don't think there is any reliable public transportation along this route.

Looking forward to seeing you!

    Hi Davie and Brodie. It just wouldn't be the same without you. If you could get yourselves to the sky train station at KingEdward and Cambie by 12:30, I'd be more than happy to give you a ride .

    Hello there...I'll be visiting Vancouver from 8-11 September 2014. Are there any meetings organised for those days? I'd love to meet up.

    I've decided to go to Bard instead. I'd still like to visit a float home sometime...

    • Inez

      I saw Midsummer's Night Dream at Bard last month. It was fantastic! Wish I had brought my sketchbook. Have fun and maybe I'll organize a float home meetup again in the future.

    I am in the same boat as Brod and would be happy to contribute for gas. (:

    Now I have some obligations and can't make it, sorry.

    August 11

  • Davie

    Doesn't look like i'll be able to make it either due to lack of public transit and not having a vehicle.

    I am going from Port Coquitlam with Sumi and can pick up 2 - 3 more people in the Coquitlam or New West area. Please e-mail me if anybody need a ride that day.

  • Brod

    Although I would have loved to go see and sketch a float home, I won't be able to make it due to the lack of public transportation heading to the area.
