Pedal to the metal..on the road again..

 

Our plan was to have " the pedal to the metal" and head on down Highway One towards our first stop, Wild Rose Campground in Hope, B.C.

This plan?..well it moved very slowly. We joined the thousands of B.C Day travellers heading east down Highway One...cars and trucks as far as the eye could see...our fastest speed was 45..the speed limit??..100..who's bright idea was it to travel on the Friday of the busiest long weekend of the summer? We got up to normal travelling speed just east of Abbotsford, B.C, thank goodness!

 


Anyway, we did finally arrive at the Wild Rose Campground at about 6:30..114 kms travelled today. We are in a pull-thru site with full hook-ups. This is a lovely little park just west of the town of Hope, the wood carving capital of B.C.

It is still very warm here, but we are quite comfortable inside using the power that we are paying for..the air conditioner is humming away..so nice to be cool!!!

Our intention is to get an early start tomorrow for the next leg of our trip..Hope-Princeton Highway #3..next stop is Keremeos to visit with my parents. They are staying at Eagle RV Park.

After our visit with them we will be on to our final destination, Osoyoos, B.C. N'kmip RV Park..home for the month of August.


We can hope that tomorrow will not be as slow a go as today was...gotta get up early and beat the rush...
