A Walk at Rocky Point and a Tortured Wedding Boat

The kids and I went for a walk at Rocky Point in Port Moody last weekend and they decided to play detective to solve the mystery of “the tortured wedding boat” – the old rotting corpse of a boat located washed up on the mudflats.

They began by surveying the shoreline for clues.

They then moved right to the wreck itself.

And then started looking closer to shore for other clues to help them understand the mystery.

They found some. Each discovery created deeply imaginative conversations as they pieced together the story of how the boat got wrecked.

Finding this plank and then the engine of the ship added details to their story.

It really was a fun experience to stand back while the kids created a story to connect together the clues they found.
