The Syscon building is right on River Road
And overlooks the Fraser River (looking towards Sea Island where the airport is).
Now that I had a letter that stated what my income was, I could get an apartment. I have been looking for the last week. There not a lot of vacancies in Richmond (where I am working) and it has been almost impossible to find a place that takes pets even visiting pets, I wanted a place that would let Koz, Jo Jo, Nellie and Cinnamon come for a visit.
Almost all the places that allow pets have restrictions on the SIZE! Everywhere wanted dogs under 20 pounds.
I have been making inquiry after inquiry and finally found one that would. It is quite a bit pricer than those that don't but it is a really nice place. It is on the other side of the Island the city of Richmond is on (Lulu Island) and is right beside the Fraser River too!
Here is the view from the deck of my new apartment.
And what a great layout!
I can't move in until the middle of October though. The lady in my suite can't move into the new place she purchased, as the tenants in her new place have not yet moved out. My new place was stacked to the ceiling with her moving boxes! (and I got to meet her 2 cats, they were total sweeties).
Here are some shots of a similar unit across the hall.

And the view of the building from the front
(my apartment is on the back side of the building)
Finally, a view from the left side looking up towards my apartment
I guess you could call it a penthouse suite!
I am really excited! This is the first time I have ever chosen a place to live by myself.
I wish I could move in sooner.
Now some shots of my walk on Boundary Beach this morning.
First is a shot of the Crow who "talked" to me the whole time I was there. He greeted me at my car and then flew just to the left of me the whole walk.
This is a shot of the thousands of geese and ducks on the water in Boundary Bay. They are a little hard to see through the fog, but boy were they ever noisy.
