the three c's..cranberries..canoes..campfire

 

Yet another sunny fall day here in Fort Langley..the temperature this morning was a a balmy 46 degrees ..our plan today was to walk into town and go to the Cranberry Festival.

We had our breakfast..took Tucker to the field across from the campground for a game of retrieve the ball..we needed to tire him out as we were leaving him in the trailer while we went to the festival.

Our neighbours this morning had started cooking their Thanksgiving turkey in a garbage can surrounded with briquettes??..not a process we have seen before but it was a different way to cook a bird especially one that weighed in at 38 pounds!!

We headed down the trail towards the cranberry festivities and were pleasantly surprised as to how busy it was…

Before heading back to the campsite we watched some of the canoe regatta on the Brae Regional canal..10 person canoes vying for the first place spot.

We went back to the trailer and had lunch and a campfire. As were we sitting outside around the campfire we noticed a paddle wheeler travelling down the canal....
