Finn Slough is a small community on the Fraser River, without 'official' status, and under constant threat of eviction, even though it has been an occupied community for 100 years. Although the residents do not 'own' the land, there are many "private" and "keep out" signs, which are understandable, given the curiosity of visitors to the area. I found a perch on a small foot bridge and set up for a day of plein air painting. I managed two pieces before retreating from the heat, and here is the first. By the way, all the residents who stopped to talk to me were most welcoming.
