Visitor loved wine train tour

Visitors from the Lower Mainland had a great time on the wine train, says letter writer.

To the Editor,

On Tuesday, Sept. 22 I visited your city along with 20 other visitors from the Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge area. What a wonderful time we had!

The ride on the Alberni Pacific Railway to the McLean Mill and the tour of the Chase & Warren Estate Winery were very entertaining. The demonstrations at the mill made me realize what a dangerous job those oldtime millworkers had to do to cut timber.

Then sitting in the sun sampling wines was a great way to spend the afternoon. I can hardly wait to share the Pinot Gris that I purchased.

Another highlight of the visit was seeing Sally waving the large Canadian flag with much enthusiasm each time the train passed her home.

What a wonderful ambassador she is for your city; the vigorous flag waving made everyone smile.

Well done, Sally! You can take a well-deserved rest now that the summer season is over.

It was a trip I will remember for a long time.

Fran Preston,

Pitt Meadows, BC
