All photos taken on September 19, 2021 during our drive between Kamloops and Tsawwassen.

All photos taken July 25, 2021. So, despite the quiet room, comfy bed and the super quiet air conditioner, last night’s sleep? was less than stellar. Still keyed up from the hectic past week, I still had hope of a decent sleep, so we could complete the final 10 hour drive home. Not to be!Continue reading “Fallout”


All photos taken on July 24, 2021. After settling into our room, none of us had any desire to go hunting for supper.
