The Going Away Party

On June 24th we picked up our Escape trailer and the party began!

We are so blessed with great friends and family.

Two nights at Golden Ears Provincial Park with lower mainland family, 2 nights out at friends, 2 nights in Manitoba with all Albert’s family for a celebration of life, 1 night traveling, 4 nights at Rathtrevor Provincial Park with no less than 10 people each night, 2 nights at my parents, 4 nights at Upper Quinsam Lake Forestry Campsite with 6 to 10 close friends. No shortage of calories consumed!

Then back to the folks in Parksville and this morning we are on our way.

Some of our highlights so far as we get accustomed to trailer living.

Biking the Gold Creek Trail at Golden Ears Provincial Park

Storm watching and backyard swimming at Ste Rose du Lac, Manitoba. That storm dropped a couple of tornadoes 🌪 a few kilometers away.

Happy Canada Day!!! Bounty of mum’s garden!. Gorgeous night at the Gayton’s overlooking Parksville Beach.

Happy Anniversary!!! July 2 marked 25 fantastic years of adventure, family, friends, CHAMPAGNE and FOOD!!! Can’t beat a Rathtrevor Beach celebration!!

Camping at Upper Quinsam Lake. The inflatable tandem kayak is fantastic and doubles as a canoe!! Dog is still unimpressed.

We took a drive up above Upper Quinsam lake through a mountain pass that backs on to Strathcona Park.

On the other side of the ridge is Buttle Lake. Some beautiful sub alpine flora. A black bear disappeared before I could snap a picture. Our truck tires did not like the spiky terrain and one was flat by the time we descended. So no more extreme roads until next year when we replace the tires!!!

Princess Fani.

Saying “so-long” to the folks. Fani is with them for a stint before my sister picks her up and takes her to Calgary until we get back in February. Love you Mum and Don!!
Siri is a freak… how did my phone know to play this.

Next stop… Whistler, BC
