We found Earth!

April 7, 2009

Specifically, we finally got out to Centennial Beach in Tsawwassen to see the “Earth” locations from Battlestar Galactica, including the spot where Kara found…herself, and the beach where the crew realized just how desolate a place their journey had led them to.

It’s harder to show comparison shots of the beach, since the ruins and CGI elements aren’t there as reference markers, so you’ll have to take my word for it that it is easy to tell you’re in the right place.  Well worth a field trip, it is certainly a beautiful spot.

  1. Greetings Spacepug! I never dreamed I’d find a place that would meld my passion for pugs with my bsg obsessions. I’ll be back. Often.
