We have been waiting so long for summer to arrive..well..NEWSBREAK FOLKS..SUMMER HAS ARRIVED!!!..at least for the next few days ?
Yesterday was a very balmy day..with a slight breeze it was bearable..not that I am complaining!!..we are happy the sun has decided to stick around for a bit!!
But we are more happy that we have an airconditioner..today on our sundeck while we were trying to barbeque dinner it was a very warm 40 degrees celcius..that would be 110 farenheit for our american readers!!!..stinkin hot!!!
This thermometer is on our sundeck on a post..not in direct line with the blazing orb in the sky!!!
Our delicious dinner..chicken shish kabobs
The temperature inside??
Thanks to our air conditioner and the two fans..almost 30 degrees cooler than outside!! ..the “boys “ are happy..and so am I!!!
Now onto the question from Dennis and Donna….Where is Coquitlam, B.C.??
We are located in the province of British Columbia..our nearest big city is Vancouver..Coquitlam is about 30 miles from Vancouver….
We have lived in this area all of our married life…except for a short time that we lived in New Westminister. our lives have gone full circle because we are only a few blocks from where we lived when we brought our daughter home from the hospital almost 25 years ago
“The community's population is over 100,000. It may be reached via the West Coast Express and Highways 7 & 1. The City is bounded by Burrard Inlet and
Port Moody on the north, Port Coquitlam to the east, the Fraser River to the south and Burnaby and New Westminster to the west.
Coquitlam's Town Centre leads growth in the area and is home to Coquitlam Centre. Just to the north of the Town Centre is the large residential area of
Westwood Plateau. Near Guildford and Pinetree ways are the Evergreen Cultural Centre, Douglas College, City Centre Aquatic Centre and Lafarge Lake. We live directly across the street from Lafarge Lake.
Nestled near Eagle and Burke mountains, the city boasts over 70 parks, with hiking trails, marshland and abundant old growth trees. A few suggestions to visit are Mundy Park southwest Coquitlam's large forest park with 435 acres, walking trails and two pretty little lakes. Also Colony Farm and Pinecone-Burke Mountain. Historic Minnekhada Regional Park in northeast Coquitlam features a historic lodge, many trails, picnicking and marshland teeming with wildlife.”
there you go..thanks for asking!!
