Road Trip – All Good Things….

NOTE: This post contains slideshows and if you are viewing on your phone is best viewed direct from the SITE, rather than in the READER.

All photos taken on October 10, 2021 as we drove the final 844 km (525 miles) to home except the yard sequence taken on October 11, 2021.

Those of you who are still on this road trip with me, thanks so much for coming along. Our travels were nearly at an end, as we gassed up in Kamloops. We knew we would not need to sanitize tonight’s accommodations, before bringing in the luggage.

Last fillup in B.C…..on this trip
new snow on the Kamloops hills
Kamloops Residential School – one scene of the crime

Endless fall colours

rural Canadian scenery
stopping at an iconic Canadian takeout in Clearwater – home of the Apple Fritter from my Car Food Coping post

Birch Island rest stop

the never ending road

Mount Robson Park boundary
Moose Lake view
iconic Canadian mountain freight train

Moose Lake stop

Mount Robson views

Welcome back to Alberta
Back on flat land
Herd of buffalo? Of course I’ve heard of buffalo. Why? Do you want to “bi-son”? Farmed bison ranch.
Crossing the North Saskatchewan River near Devon – so close to home
Edmonton International Airport – closer still
little church on the prairie
on the home stretch
backwards glance at a sunset
church on the hill – back home in Beaumont at last
Removal of our luggage exposed a Benji signed original – we may never wash this seat again – seriously, Benji was always a model passenger and we will miss him

Yard work awaits

and so this road trip ends…..

A big shout out to my Patty, who took all the photos from a moving car and did a fabulous job.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. Ha Ha. Yes, we live in the little town (now City) on the hill. Been here almost 31 years and despite a few humps and bumps, you could not pry us loose. Thanks for reading Glen. Allan


    1. It is crazy that we had not done it for so long but have now done it 9 times in less than 2 years. I almost know the landmarks by heart. We smiled when we saw the Benji print. Thanks for reading Lynette. Allan

    1. Thanks for joining us Lyssy. I was happy to have Patty take the photos, as had we stopped for everything interesting I saw, we would still be on the road. We love that rural scene and keep watch for it on each successive trip. Thanks for reading. Allan
