Finn Slough

We all know that Craig loves abandoned houses and places.
And because we liked to visit some non-touristy places in and around Vancouver, a visit to Finn Slough was a logical and fascinating choice from Craig.

Finn Slough is an alternative community with Finnish roots. Partially neglected and abandoned, but also with artistic and alternative residents.
For more information you can visit the website, of which I already quote the homepage:

“Welcome to Finn Slough and the Finn Slough Heritage & Wetland Society. The residents and fishers who live and work in this unique community invite you to explore the pages of this website and uncover the many delightful aspects of the "Slough"; its Finnish roots, the who's who of wildlife and plants, current events related to our community and its role in the rich heritage of the Fraser River.

Discover Finn Slough! Click on the buttons to the left and be sure to visit our Gallery to view images collected from today's artists.

Finn Slough (or sometimes Gilmore or Tiffin Slough) can be found on the south arm of the mighty Fraser River in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada. The Slough is bounded on the Fraser River side by Gilmour Island and on the north by a dyke built to protect Richmond. Access to homes on the Gilmour Island side of the Slough is by a wooden draw-bridge, creating a definite sense of isolation from the nearby urban areas of Richmond and Vancouver.
