a day in the life….

 

our home for the weekend is Brae Island Regional Park….a large campground in the town of Fort Langley…the birthplace of British Columbia..

we don’t need a sewer hook up..

the campground is very well maintained..with lots of flower pots…a swimming pool

..a general store that sells everything from marshmallows to  sewer connections…there is even a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner…

there is clean washrooms..showers are a ‘loonie’ for five minutes..and there is a laun-dro-mat also…haven’t ventured over that way as yet to see how much they charge for wash/dry…

After breakfast Tucker and I ventured into Fort Langley….doing some window shopping…can’t go into too many stores when your are accompanied by a ‘four-legged companion…

  2. I need to borrow Tucker when Marti goes out for "Retail Theraphy". He'd save me a lot of money by keeping Marti out of stores. :c)

    Glad to see you enjoying the great outdoors with the Pup. Lovely area you're camping in.

  3. What a nice day you had, Sue, and it will be even better now that Doug is there. That looks like a great campground. How's it going with camping in the tent trailer?

  4. I think it's totally unfair to keep Tucker out of the store! Maybe if he had hi own charge account ...

  5. Fun day - it's nice to have Tucker as company when Doug isn't there. Tucker is such a beautiful dog. Love the photo of him and the fire pit. I'll bet Doug was happy to see the goodies waiting for him! :)

  6. Well now... that all looks wonderful!!! Hope you enjoyed it! And are off to great adventures today...

    Last night at dinner here in Port Townsend, there was a couple outside both walking around looking down at their cell phones. At first I thought they were looking for a signal, since it seems to come and go here. Then, after watching them for awhile, I decided they were searching for a geo cache and indeed they were. He finally found it and she took his photo. Then off they went down the sidewalk!

  17. What a nice week-end you're having....lucky you.

    I love the picture of Tucker by the fire. He reminds me of my girl "Sweet Pea." I never knew how special Goldens were.
