Where has the time gone?..my last post was on September 16th, three weeks ago..
How did that happen?..what have we been doing?
Not too much, just the usual work stuff..hardly blog worthy..
Yesterday we went to the Cranberry Festival in Fort Langley..
No pictures were taken…it was a mass of people..we walked around as best we could..bought some cranberries and we left..enough of that..
onward to this morning..
Today was the first day that I actually used the camera since last month..
We loaded up a picnic lunch and headed east towards the town of Hope..filled up with gas..and then we headed south to Ross Lake..
60 kilometers of gravel road..
some of the leaves were showing signs of a new season..autumn is on the way..
then there was a bear..he crossed the road right in front of us..moved to quick to take a photo!!..but it was real!!…no ‘Bart’ on this trip!!
..we stopped at Silver Lake Campground and Silver Tip Campground..both had empty sites..geesh!..we should have come camping this weekend!!
..Ross Lake only had a few occupied sites..the rest were..yes, you guessed it!..empty!!
..so peaceful and quiet..this is the American side of Ross Lake..
..the clear cut line down the mountain is the border between Canada and the USA..
..there is no access to the USA from here..the American visitors need to access Ross Lake via the border at the Sumas crossing..
..it was quiet until ‘someone’ hit the water..
..we enjoyed our picnic lunch..occupying one of the many empty campsites..
Tucker made two new friends..Rosie and Buddy!..two seven year old golden retrievers..they moved pretty quickly so I wasn’t able to capture a photo of the three of them…
..the weather was picture perfect..sunny and warm yet again…
after our lunch and enjoying the views..we head towards home..
stopping at this bridge..
Doug and Carlie ventured across..Me?..I waited in the jeep..not a big fan of ‘swinging bridges’..
..it was a lovely day..one that got me back into the ‘swing of blogging’ again..
..and so ends our Thanksgiving Day..we hope that everyone had a great day filled with good food and family!!
